To the contacts

The acute geriatric department of the hospital Gemeinschaftskrankenhaus Havelhöhe is aimed at patients who are over 70 years old and suffering from several conditions at the same time.

These people often need particularly intensive therapeutic care, especially after acute events such as acute infections, falls or operations.

For these patients, the acute geriatrics team at the hospital Gemeinschaftskrankenhaus Havelhöhe has developed a special therapy programme that strengthens and promotes existing resources in a variety of ways. In addition to established geriatrics procedures, it also includes the various therapeutic opportunities afforded by anthroposophic medicine.

It is important to us to restore the independence and mobility of our patients to such an extent that they can return to their familiar or desired environment and lead a life with as high a quality of life as possible.

Our ward dog Willi has been volunteering for us since August 2018. He supports our team in mobilising and motivating our patients in his own special way.
