DomusVi, the leading company in senior care in Spain, strengthens its network of care homes for the elderly with the addition of the Juana Jugán residence in Vitoria-Gasteiz, until now owned by the Little Sisters of the Poor, an institution that also managed the service. This acquisition will increase the presence of the group in the Basque country, where it already has six other centers (4 residences for the elderly, 1 for mental health and 1 day center dedicated to psychosocial rehabilitation). After the purchase, the center will undertake a remodeling project to modernize its facilities and offer service to 150 people, all of them in individual rooms.

The new residence of DomusVi in Vitoria has an excellent location in the neighborhood of Gazalbide, northwest of the capital of Alava. The building consists of five floors and magnificent gardens that are framed in a plot of more than 15,000 square meters. Currently, the residence serves 58 residents with a workforce of 39 workers, all of whom will continue to receive and offer the service, respectively.

DomusVi plans to invest more than 4 million euros to remodel the building and equip it with the best facilities to guarantee a quality service to the people it serves. Following its model of care for the elderly, DomusVi will organize the building in different units of coexistence for a better personalized attention of the residents.

The company follows its growth plan throughout the Spanish territory to expand its network of residences, in locations where there is a latent demand for this type of services. In Vitoria, DomusVi already manages the residence of Ariznavarra, property of the Provincial Council of Álava with a capacity of 140 residential places and 60 of day center. In addition to the centers in Alava, in the Basque Country, DomusVi has a residence in Bilbao and two more in San Sebastian. It also manages a day care center for people with disabilities in Azpeitia and, recently, its division of Mental Health, also in expansion, has acquired a reference center in Usurbil (Guipúzcoa)
