The Kuratorium Wiener Pensionisten-Wohnhäuser is the largest provider for Senior Care in Austria. Our 4,100 employees care for approximately 8,900 residents in 30 Senior Homes, and additionally for thousands of visitors to the 160 Senior Clubs (Pensionistenklubs) of the City of Vienna.
The KWP senior homes provide long-term Residential Care Services including:
Supported Living: For seniors who do not need nursing care, but who – for various reasons (social isolation, for instance) – do not want to or cannot continue living at home. If necessary, temporarily care will be provided.
Assisted Living: Provides services to seniors who need care and receive federal care allowance (level 1 through 7). KWP treatment professionals create a program tailored to each resident’s individual needs.
Long-Term Nursing Care: Provides care to seniors who need around-the-clock nursing care by qualified staff (care allowance level 3+).
An integral part of the Viennese Social System
KWP is owned by the City of Vienna, and provides essential social services for elderly citizens. The City seeks to assure that adequate levels of needed social services are made available to all residents, especially low-income residents to ensure their social well-being. To this end, the City of Vienna also provides financial support to elderly citizens in need of care and nursing services.
