Authorisation of the Governor of Silesia No. PS/II/9041/11/2/07 (Silesia Katowice)
Private Care Home Silesia and Pension for the Elderly "Zapiecek" in Rogoznik was established because we know that the autumn of life does not have to be difficult, grey and saturated with loneliness or fear of how long you will be able to live independently or whether you will have enough energy, time and skills to care for yourself. In our care home, the autumn of life takes on beautiful colours. Here, life is active and healthy again - but without haste and without stress, always at the pace best suited to the individual resident.
„"Zapiecek" in Rogoźnik is a unique place: it is located in the modern Silesian agglomeration (not far from Katowice) and at the same time is in a secluded area with idyllic landscapes. It provides a safe refuge for people who need care - including seniors with Alzheimer's disease or senile dementia - and those who have decided to swap their previous loneliness for the company of other people.
