Social Facilities

Facilities for Seniors and Nursing Homes

We can all find ourselves in a situation where we need the help of others due to a worsened health condition or life changes. This dependency is partially covered by social services facilities – retirement homes, care homes, day-care centres and others.

Who provides these services?

Social services in the form of stays for seniors are provided by public and non-public social services providers. You can find their list in the Central Register of Social Services Providers. 
Social services in the form of stays for handicapped are generally provided by the Bratislava Self-Governing Region.
    Non-public providers provide their social services in more than a dozen retirement homes and in eight care homes in Bratislava.
    The City of Bratislava has established the following facilities (see their list below):
      7 retirement homes;
      3 care homes;
      1 day-care centre.
Pursuant to Act No. 448/2008 Coll. on social services and on amendment to Act No. 445/1991 Coll. on trade licencing (the Trade Licensing Act), as amended.
