Welcome note from the owner of LUG Nursing Home
I am delighted to present to you the Nursing Home LUG.
After gaining valuable experience working at the National Institutes of Health in Washington, I have had the great pleasure of introducing to our native setting the systematic approaches to care for the elderly and the high levels of service and responsibility, characteristic of American healthcare institutions, enriching and complementing these with our traditional Serbian kindness and hospitality.
Institutional forms of care for older people are a necessity imposed upon us by the accelerated pace of modern life and a considerably increased life expectancy. The Nursing Home LUG, in Mladenovac, Serbia, is a modern center that provides all forms of specialist care, medical supervision and rehabilitation to its residents. Years of experience, consistent praise from other centers, regular presentations at gerontological conferences, and active participation in organisations devoted to raising the standards of care for the elderly, are a testimony to Nursing Home LUG`s leadership in the field.
When you visit us, your first reaction is likely to be that of incredulity that an institution such as
this exists in Serbia. Hotel-style services on a full-board basis, in the beautiful surroundings of a
large park, with high levels of individualised attention given to all residents by dedicated specialist staff, provide unique conditions for both physical and mental recovery. We pride ourselves on fostering a relationship of deep trust and mutual respect between residents and staff.
It is our belief that the improvement in the quality of life of elderly people is best achieved through extensive occupational therapy that encourages active participation in life and engagement in the community. See yourself positively! Age actively and with dignity! Do not grow old alone! These are the mottos that guide us and that we strive to achieve for our residents on a daily basis.
We hope that this presentation will be useful and informative.
We look forward to seeing you soon,
Dr Vladan Čokić
