Home > Elderly People, Glimpse from 2004 > The new home for elderly people in Sector 4 (District 4)

The new home for elderly people in Sector 4 (District 4)

In May, 2004 we received an invitation from Mayor Vasile Mihalache to visit a home which was newly completed and 120 elderly people had been transferred there from a deteriorated building. This new home was a dream come true for the Mayor – he had had an empty school transformed! What a transformation!

 

The bright colours used in the painting give such an uplifting effect. The home is spacious with small numbers of residents in each brightly furnished room. There are sitting rooms with reclining chairs, the kitchen is superb and toilets and showers are close to the bedrooms. A well-equipped laundry is in constant use. Only one drawback still exists –  there is no lift, and that is essential for the residents on the top floor.

A thing of beauty is the garden which is large and surrounds the out-of-doors. The Mayor Vasile Mihalache hopes to have a little oratory built in one corner of the garden. To hear nearby is a school so the happy voices of children at play should be an added bonus.

The Mayor Vasile Mihalache hopes to link school and home with visits by the children to their elderly friends.
