Ruissalo Foundation’s goal is to provide modern and comfortable residential solutions and care services for seniors respecting their independence, individual choices and right to self-determination. The Foundation implements this goal by developing, designing, building and maintaining high-quality rental housing and serviced residences for seniors.
The number of elderly is increasing continuously as the large middle-aged generation is growing older. Like never before, this new senior clientele is very aware of their personal wants and needs as well as requirements and preferences for living standards and everyday life.
The Ruissalo Foundation recognizes this new resolute and informed clientele by continuously developing the senior housing and service concepts to provide even better personalized living environments and care services to meet the new needs of the senior clientele. The Foundation also supports research related to aging and seniors, and participates in developing technology to facilitate and assist in living arrangements, housing and everyday life.
The Ruissalo Foundation has together with Saga Services previously developed a number of service products and concepts that have been implemented and integrated in the Senior Serviced Residences. From purposely designed, accessible apartment layouts, motion sensor controlled lighting solutions to security and access surveillance locking systems in all senior apartments, some of the products developed are:
The Quality Management System
Covering all aspects of the operations and property, including service concepts, products, personnel and facilities, the service manual improves quality by evaluating, developing and perfecting the supplied services, operating models and procedures. Progress and improvement is measured in customer and employee satisfaction through questionnaires and self-evaluation, reliability and accuracy evaluations, safety reports, as well as personnel education and work orientation.
The eCare System
The Foundation has developed an eCare electronic patient management system that includes residents’ personal and medical information, support and health care plans, service and medical history, invoicing system and personnel work shift schedules and planning tools with various security tiers for different employee levels.
