We would like to warmly welcome you and thank you for the trust and time you have devoted to us.

Nursing home for adults Bistričak is a private social care facility. In our facility, we take care of users from all parts of Croatia. At the facility, we also offer services for accommodating mobile, semi-mobile and immobile persons with psychic encumbrance and dementia, and since just recently we also offer services of communal housing in the community of housing units. Nursing home Bistričak in Jalžabet was established in 1998. In 2006, a new nursing home in Otočac has been built, as a branch of the home in Bistričak. Since 2007, a nursing home for psychologically ill adults in Kotoriba (follower of the nursing home for adults Kotoriba) has been a part of our system of facilities.

Based on the positive experience from the branch Otočac where we had organized housing for two people, we have requested permission for an object of a kind in Jalžabet.



In 2013, we started a project on organized housing in Otočac. The housing unit is located in the sole centre of Otočac within the apartment building.
