My mother’s Alzheimer’s was getting worse and it was becoming impossible to care for her at home. We had adapted our home and looked after her as well as we could, but we realised that it was not enough. It was no life for her or for us. At the home they know what they are doing, and have trained professionals to look after her. The therapy has put a smile back on her face, and has changed everyone’s lives for the better.
I cannot describe how happy I was to be able to walk again after therapy following breaking my thigh bone. The SARquavitae team has not just done a great job with my rehabilitation, but their smiles and kindness have also strengthened my faith in the future.
My father lived on his own and had all the usual problems associated with being a widower of 85: struggling to take the right medication, not looking after his diet and feeling depressed and lonely. We decided to suggest to him to spend a period in a home. We had not considered it and neither had he, but some close family friends recommended a SARquavitae home where their father lived. It was a real breakthrough. We are delighted at the improvement to his quality of life. He looks like a different man, and this has also taken a load off our shoulders.
My mother was struggling with living at home on her own and there was nobody to attend to her in case of emergency. Taking out SARquavitae’s telecare service has restored my peace of mind, in the knowledge that she has someone on hand to help her when needed.
Anytime anyone mentioned a nursing home to me, I thought they would never be able to care for my mother like we do. Her stay in the home over August however was ideal, and was some of the best holidays for all of us in a long time. The care and level of attention was second to none, and knowing that she was safe and looked-after – probably better than with us – was priceless.
The trust provided by a unit specialised in advanced illnesses is very comforting, as is the feeling of support offered by a professional team attending to every last detail during such a difficult time. The reassurance of knowing that they are providing my father with the best of care has given us invaluable peace of mind.
I found myself in a situation that I just could not deal with. I was living with my mother who had been diagnosed with a schizoid personality disorder and generalised anxiety, and it was becoming very difficult to cope with as she had begun to cry out and threaten me. They are real professionals at the home, and have the right people to look after her. The therapies have put a smile back on her face, and changed all of our lives for the better.
It was exhausting trying to meet my mother’s every need. During the day we were able to go to work knowing that she was well cared for, but the nights were a different story. She would constantly need our help to get around and could not sleep properly. When we found out about this new night centre service, we knew it was just what we needed both for my mother’s sake and ours. Now she has the professional care she needs at night.
My home was huge and was too big for me now that I was on my own. It was becoming very difficult to cope with, because I love being with people, socialising and coming and going when I want. The idea of ADOREA really appealed to me. It does things such as domestic chores, meals and laundry for me, making life much easier. In ADOREA I also have a completely furnished apartment and am able to take out extra services. They also organise activities that encourage socialising, allowing me to meet new people. And all of this with total freedom and independence, meaning that you can do what you want, when you want. I think it has been a great decision, and I am able to enjoy my life without worrying about anything.

SARquavitae, the leading health and social services provider in Spain, has reached an agreement with OHL, an international concessions and construction group operating in 30 countries across 5 continents, for the acquisition of its subsidiary, Novaire, which specialises in the management of care homes and daycare centres for older people in the Valencia region.
