The surrounding area of the facility, the LSM estate, offers many avenues for walking and sports. It is great for practicing Nordic walking. The proximity of shopping malls, cultural inns, and sports centers makes living in this unique location on the map of Lublin even more attractive.

For those using the services of a physiotherapist / massage therapist, we have prepared an offer of treatments available in the physiotherapy office located on the first floor of the building. All parents need to do is book the apartment in advance.
The primary benefit of senior cohousing is the ability to live independently in an independent apartment while providing a sense of belonging to a community of people who know each other well and support each other. In this way, we carry out our mission to counteract loneliness, which in old age can be very acute and a source of illness, depression, and a sense of loss of meaning in life.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life of seniors by keeping their physical and mental health in good shape. We aim to achieve the goal through an exceptional and unique offer on the Polish market, which on the one hand focuses on the independence of seniors and maintains this independence for as long as possible, and on the other hand, by involving seniors in joint animation projects, counteracts social exclusion and loneliness.

First of all, by choosing an apartment in Villa Zakątek, you will gain peace of mind and security, resulting from the fact that many organizational and life issues will be taken care of by us. The apartment fee includes payment for utilities, internet, television, maintenance repairs, cleaning, concierge service, and even assistant care (in selected packages). In addition, if you live on a high floor in a block of apartments without an elevator and leaving the apartment is inconvenient for you, you will definitely improve the comfort of your life, as our facility has an elevator. You can also strengthen your fitness by taking advantage of fitness classes held in our hall and Nordic walking training outside. Through participation in handicraft workshops or thematic meetings (report club), you will meet seniors with similar interests. Not without significance is also the immediate vicinity of Villa Zakątek, you can read more about its advantages here. We can also take care of organizing food in the range of your choice, because we work with a catering company that takes into account different diets.
At Villa Zakątek, a particularly important aspect for us was to provide seniors with such a level of security that they feel comfortable and do not have to worry about areas of their lives related to various dangers. All the technologies installed in the apartments are intelligent systems that watch over fire safety (smoke detectors, smoke extraction system), alert when flooding occurs, or when a senior’s health parameters deteriorate or fall (coupled with a dedicated app, senior wristbands). In addition, an easy-to-use light and heat control system is installed in the apartments, so you can set optimal heat parameters for the day and different ones for the night. For those who are not fond of using cell phones and small screens (due to, for example, poorer eyesight), we offer the possibility of using intercom (which works in the area of the facility) and the KOMP system, a very easy-to-use system for video conferencing and sending messages and notifications. Through this system, you can contact friends, family, and the facility coordinator. A very convenient solution is also the biometric locking system, which allows you to open the apartment with your fingerprint. This eliminates the need to carry a key with you, or even remember it. In addition, this solution eliminates the threat of unauthorized people getting into the apartment.
Moreover, each apartment has an emergency call system integrated with a system of SMS notifications to designated persons, and, in addition, the safety of seniors at Villa Zakątek is supervised by a visual monitoring system outside the building and in the reception hall.
Yes, there is a video monitoring system on the premises (in selected common areas) and in front of the facility. Its purpose is to ensure the safety of persons using the apartments and employees of the facility, as well as the protection of property in parts of the facility and in its vicinity. The relevant provisions in the contract specify the monitored areas and the exact scope of the facility’s authority in this regard.
The decision to reorganize one’s life and live in Villa Zakątek, despite the attractiveness of the very idea of living in a cohousing community, can be a challenge for an elderly person, which we understand very well. Leaving one’s current life, the proverbial four corners, can be one of the most difficult decisions in life. However, considering the package of benefits that such a decision brings, it is worth considering whether moving to a friendly community of people of similar age, with similar problems and interests will be a form of help for your beloved senior. It’s worth thinking through some possible scenarios. Below, we suggest how to reorganize the family’s life and support the senior in the decision to move to an apartment in Villa Zakątek.
We realize how cumbersome it can be for both parties to live together under the same roof in a multigenerational model. Older people have their own habits and rituals, and it is often difficult for younger people to adjust to them due to different circumstances – working late into the night or having interests and preferences for watching movies or using the computer at night, for example. Young people at the beginning of their careers often do not have the means, creditworthiness, or chance to buy their own apartment. The solution may be to reserve an apartment in Villa Zakątek for the senior. This is a model of reorganization that is 100% safe for both the young and the senior because he does not get rid of his apartment; he moves to a modern facility inhabited by people of similar age, and his apartment is used by his relatives. In addition, he doesn’t have to worry about furnishing and equipping his new apartment, as our apartments are fully equipped. The senior’s comfort is supervised by the intelligent systems we describe above.
The primary benefit for seniors of living in a senior cohousing facility is to support integration and bonding with other residents of similar age and needs. Through various forms of activation, whether group exercise classes like yoga or Pilates, or workshops and themed meetings, we want to inspire residents to spend time together to get to know each other even better. It is invaluable to know that, in case of an emergency, our seniors can count on mutual neighborly assistance. Such a close relationship with those closest to them can rarely be developed in non-cohousing conditions.
The autumn of life is also the perfect time to develop passions – our offer of workshops and thematic meetings is sure to satisfy the most sophisticated tastes. In addition to handicraft workshops, we offer cooking together during culinary workshops and meetings within thematic clubs (good book club, reportage club). The offer will be complemented by the opportunity to celebrate holidays, birthdays, and name days together – our spacious and tastefully decorated workshop room with a large kitchen will be perfect as a space to use for all kinds of special events. An additional opportunity to integrate our seniors will be gained by participating in joint excursions and outings. We will arrange the excursion program based on the declared preferred destinations.
It is also worth noting the excellent location of our facility, Villa, which is located on the Piast Estate, about which you can read more here. We encourage you to take advantage of our offer!
Of course! We work with a real estate office operating in the field of property management, which will take over the hassle of finding and servicing a tenant. There is no need to worry about acquiring a client or ongoing rental issues.
From a financial standpoint, the prospect of renting one’s own apartment and using an apartment in Villa Zakątek also presents a highly favorable scenario.
A large group of seniors will be able to afford to live in Villa Bartek by renting their own apartment and adding their salary or pension.
For example, a senior citizen can rent his own apartment for PLN 2,500, on top of which he receives a pension of PLN 2,500. This gives a monthly amount of PLN 5,000, which will fully cover accommodation at Villa Zakątek in the selected package. At the same time, the senior citizen will not lose any assets, as the apartment he owns remains his property.
Of course, our senior cohousing is designed for people aged 50+ who, for various reasons, want to live with like-minded people and decide together what their living environment will look like. If a group of friends who have known each other for years and want to be close to each other decide to move to Villa Zakątek – then the palette of benefits includes, in addition to the use of a self-contained, independent apartment, the comfort of living in proximity to people known and liked, with an infrastructure conducive to spending time together.
Research shows that inclusive cohousing is a better option than traditional forms of housing, as it results in a healthier and happier life. Senior cohousing allows seniors to maintain their independence while providing mutual assistance, giving them a sense of security. Such natural social assistance by people in friendly relations living in proximity and using common infrastructure not only creates conditions for activity but, above all, stimulates it. It counteracts psycho-physical deterioration, teaches resourcefulness, provides opportunities to use the experience and potential of fellow residents in performing various duties, and helps to cope with everyday life.
If you and your friends are thinking about living together, we encourage you to learn more about the concept of cohousing. We will help you choose the most optimal package for your group, so that living at Villa Zakątek will be the best option for you in the autumn of your life.
If your health deteriorates and requires a medical consultation, we will arrange an appointment and a transportation to a doctor or hospital if necessary. If your well-being allows you to stay in the apartment, but you will feel weak and need help with daily activities like shopping or cooking, you will be able to use the help of your neighbours living in Villa Zakątek, friends, or family, or take advantage of dedicated assistant support (service available according to our price list).
Certainly, being in a senior cohousing environment, among friendly people of similar age and with similar needs and expectations, is a safer option for times of illness or periodic disability than living in traditional housing. The use of mutual neighbourly assistance, the organization of grassroots support in emergency situations, as well as the convenience of smart systems like senior wristbands that monitor health parameters or a button to call for help via text message to designated people, make seniors feel safe even when they are sick.
If your health deteriorates to the point where you are unable to function independently, we will refer you to a friendly care and rehabilitation home providing top-quality services. Of course, we will take all actions in consultation with your relatives or other persons defined for contact.
