Evangelisches Diakoniewerk Gallneukirchen

description of organisation

The aim of this institution is to help those who are not able to help themselves. We work with persons with special needs who live in small sharing communities together (6-8 persons) as well as with persons who live in our home for old people. We attend to these persons from dusk to down (dressing, shopping, cooking, going for walks, going to church, cleaning, free time activities etc.). In Gallneukirchen we have 9 houses for people with special needs . These have respectively 2,4,6 or 8 units. In the units live 4 to 9 persons who are taken care of by one or two employers. All together about 700 employers work at our instituion in Gallneukirchen. In the old people`s home takes care for 40 persons.
