Estia Athinon



Although , the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation is mainly concerned with cultural events, it is also active in the field of social welfare. It undertook the construction and outfitting of a new pavilion for the elderly intended for the non-profit institution “Estia Athinon”, which was built within the grounds of the Old People’s Home of the Athens Charitable Society and was inaugurated on the 1st of June 1989.

This complex of 35 apartments for elderly people was designed by architect Christos Kontovounisios. The residents are under the medical surveillance of highly trained staff and have at their disposal a fully equipped physiotherapy room permanently attended by a trained physiotherapist. In addition, “Estia Athinon” provides comfortable recreation rooms, pleasant surroundings, and healthy diet for the elderly.
