About us

After 10 years of practice in implementing international and national projects, we started this biggest project in our life. We are combining all the experience and implemented programs, knowledge, team and motivation to create best Senior home in Lithuania, and to be good example to others.

“Nauja pradžia” (“New Start”) – a project with its name perfectly reflecting what we currently live in and what we hope our future housemates will live in.

We will bring together accommodation and care, social support, integration into the labor market, rehabilitation and social business experience under one roof!

A new creative start – will be open soon!

Project "Nauja pradžia"

We have always dreamed of being more than “just” a care home for the elderly. We aim to provide social care and accommodation, health care, nursing, professional rehabilitation and integration, and psychosocial services in the community. We especially often meet people who are motivated to work but do not have qualifications, so we would like to offer the opportunity to acquire qualifications at the workplace. Gilvyčiai is a small community in a remote settlement, and our project will be a meaningfull add to the community’s social life. The creation of jobs in small towns is an important event for the inhabitants of the town. We believe this will help maintain the spirit of the town and even encourage people to stay in the suburbs.

Care and accommodation services.

Care, nursing, accommodation for people with severe disabilities, elderly persons with severe disabilities and elderly persons without disabilities.

Our goal is to create a positive nursing home for grandparents, which could become a real new start for them in senior age.

“Nauja pradžia” senior home will be a place where seniors can live independently and still feel safe, suported and important.

The future care home “Nauja Pradžia” will solve the following social problems:
the problem of the lack of qualified social workers working with elderly people: our lecturers’ long-term experience in creating and conducting training programs will allow us to prepare highly qualified workers.
the problem of social workers’ job satisfaction: more responsibility and independence with the “self management” system will allow employers to enjoy each day at work more. Happy employees, happy residents.
the problem of loneliness of seniors: we take care of part of seniors so they will not feel lonely. We will create opportunities to live independently as long as possible, engage in gardening, handicrafts, communication, and travel. And for those who are willing and able, we will create an opportunity to even take care of their neighbours. The more independence, the better the health.
the problem of feeling guilty about not being able to properly care for our aging parents and grandparents: we will create tools to make the elderly in our care homes feel important and cared for.

Why should you contribute to our project?

We have big goals – to raise the level of job satisfaction of social workers working with elderly people in the Šiauliai region, enabling them to make their own decisions. And the happier the employees, the happier the residents. We want to create a home where everyone feels welcome.

The services provided in the care institution will not be limited to social care and nursing. We will focus on the training and improvement of the qualifications of specialists providing social services, and through ongoing projects, we will strive to provide community services not only to residents of care homes, but also to community members.

For many years we have been preparing training programs and conducting training for social workers. By doing so, we contribute to a better quality of services throughout Lithuania.

After the establishment of the senior care home, the “self-management” system will be applied (i.e. the social workers themselves will decide on the need to increase the number of colleagues and will choose their own colleagues), they will decide on the need for education by assessing their qualifications and status.

We plan to measure impact by focusing on the following indicators:

  1. the level of job satisfaction of social workers working in the Šiauliai region before the training, after the training and several months after the training;
  2. improving attitude towards social workers, trust in this profession;
  3. decreasing shortage of skilled workers in this profession;
  4. the quality of services, which we will measure by increasing the life expectancy of the residents (we will study and improve the facilities to take care of the residents, and they can enjoy their most beautiful days for as long as possible)
  5. residents’ level of independence: we will strive for the elderly residents to take care of themselves independently as much as possible, thus maintaining their better quality of life. For this purpose, we will create conditions for gardening, cooking, handicrafts, other leisure activities and more.

The most important criterion for the selection of employees is the acceptance and support of the institution’s values.
