Living Concept

Living Concept

The rehabilitation process in the P.A.N. Centre usually takes up to 18 months. For this reason, it is important for the rehabilitation patients to feel comfortable and at home during their time in Frohnau. For them, the P.A.N. Centre marks a transitional phase from rehabilitation in hospital to life in the social space in a form of living that is as independent as possible.

In the P.A.N. Centre we therefore set great store by an individualised living offering. All rehabilitation patients have single rooms with their own bathrooms. In addition, the rehabilitation patients are continuously supported by specially trained neuro-educationalists. They transfer therapy successes into everyday life, support the patients in reacquiring everyday practical skills, thus preparing them for a life that is as independent as possible.

The modern rehabilitation architecture of the P.A.N. Centre provides many open areas and opportunities to meet. The rehabilitation patients are thus permanently encouraged to chat to others and spend time together. This continuous occupation improves the effectiveness of the rehabilitation process.

The Residential Complexes of the P.A.N. Centre

The living offerings of the P.A.N. Centre are organised in a total of five residential complexes with different focuses. They enable good, specialised care and encourage exchanges between the rehabilitation patients. Up to twelve people can live in each residential complex.

Age-Specific Residential Complexes

Depending on their age, the patients are at different life stages. Whereas matters such as partnership and family planning or a return to work are very important to younger people, older patients are bothered about different questions, such as returning to their own families. For this reason, there are two age-specific residential complexes in the P.A.N. Centre. One residential complex is specifically aimed at people under the age of 40 and the second at people over the age of 40.

Residential Complex for People with Orientation Disorders and a Tendency to Run Away

For people with orientation disorders and a tendency to run away, there is a self-contained residential complex in the P.A.N. Centre that, thanks to its architecture, prevents orientation difficulties and getting lost. The therapy offerings support the rehabilitation patients in finding ways and means of coping with their orientation disorders and minimising their impairments with clever compensation measures. For example, these include shopping and route training or using digital assistance technologies.

Residential Complex for Aphasia Patients

One residential complex in the P.A.N. Centre is aimed at people who still have chronic aphasia after discharge from the rehab clinic. One focus of the therapies for this group of people is on restoring verbal and non-verbal communication capabilities. Fitting with appropriate aids to compensate for existing impairments is also a key aspect of this residential complex.

Training Apartments

Before the rehabilitation patients move out of the P.A.N. Centre, they have the option of trying out independent living in the training residential building on the site in Frohnau and testing their self-sufficiency abilities in a protected environment. The training residential building gives the patients the orientation they need to make the right decision for their subsequent form of living after the end of the rehabilitation process. The rehabilitation patients still receive medical, therapeutic and educational support while they are there.

The training apartment therefore provides the ideal conditions for the transition from the clinic to life in the social space after rehabilitation.
