The decision to leave one’s home for health or for other reasons and to start living in a new place or to send someone close to you to a place unknown for him/her, is sometimes one of the most difficult ones in life. This is why we created Blocks Senior Living where people could feel calm and safe, with all the prerequisites to recognize this place as their new home and to be happy here.
Due to our aspiration to provide our residents with calmness and feeling for home in pleasant social environment, we chose a model of nursing homes of the family type. We located a complex of 13 one-family houses at the foot of Vitosha Mountain to provide the closeness to the countryside and personal space needed by everyone.
