The Importance of Quality Healthcare & Residency for Senior Citizens in Malta
October 23, 2023
As the population in Malta ages, there is a growing need for high-quality healthcare and residency services tailored to the unique needs of senior citizens. AX Care is at the forefront of addressing these requirements with a comprehensive, holistic approach to senior care, available at both Simblija Care Home and Hilltop Gardens Retirement Village.
Malta is witnessing a significant shift in demographics. The proportion of elderly individuals in the population is steadily increasing. The latest regional statistics released by the NSO revealed that the elderly population in Malta has experienced its most significant increase between 2011 and 2021. Simultaneously, the birth rate has slowed down, resulting in a demographic shift where there are approximately three working-age adults for every elderly person aged 65 or older. This demographic shift necessitates a fundamental re-evaluation of how we care for our senior citizens.
AX Care understands the significance of this changing landscape and has taken the initiative to address this specifically. At the heart of our commitment is the provision of the highest standards of residential care on the island. This achievement is made possible by our dedicated, multidisciplinary team, which coordinates and oversees all the health and care needs of our residents.
Our team comprises highly qualified healthcare professionals, including nurse assistants, carers, in-house physiotherapists, medical doctors, and our activity coordinator. By working collaboratively, we bring a wealth of expertise and specialist skills to assess, plan, and manage the wellbeing of our residents, ensuring a holistic approach to care.
In addition to this, our extended a tissue viability nurse, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, podiatrists, and nutritionists. This collaborative medical and allied healthcare professional approach ensures that long-term care planning is resident and family-centered. At the core of this multidisciplinary team is the resident themselves, and our primary goal is to meet all their needs holistically.
In cases where residents require specialised attention, we draw upon the expertise of our external colleagues and practitioners. This approach enables us to confidently refer residents to the specialised medical care they need when conditions demand it.
Simblija Care Home and Hilltop Gardens Retirement Village are proud to offer a comprehensive suite of services aimed at providing senior citizens with a comfortable, dignified, and enjoyable living experience. At AX Care, we recognise the evolving needs of Malta’s ageing population and are committed to addressing these needs with a multidisciplinary approach to healthcare and residency services. Our dedication to providing high-quality care is a testament to our commitment to ensuring that every senior citizen in our care enjoys a life of comfort, dignity, and well-being. We stand as a beacon of excellence in senior care in Malta, and our services reflect our unwavering dedication to our residents and their families.
