Construction of assisted living facilities

The project for construction of assisted-living facilities is a unique initiative in Russia, offering people with mental disabilities an alternative to life in psychiatric care institutions. LSR Group built the first and second assisted-living facilities (Novaya Okhta and Okhta Na Rechke) in 2017 and 2019 in partnership with the St. Petersburg Municipal Association of NGOs for the Parents of Disabled Children. Each facility currently accommodates 19 disabled people from 18 to 54 years of age. In 2021, LSR Group built two more such facilities: the Kak Doma (“As Good as Home”) temporary assisted-living centre in the Tsvetnoy Gorod residential complex, and a dormitory for young disabled people who have completed professional training at the Social and Occupational Integration Multicentre in Vsevolozhsk.

In 2021, in a similar project, LSR Group built a dormitory for young disabled people who have completed professional training at the Social and Occupational Integration Multicentre in Vsevolozhsk. This was the first facility to be built under the social sector cooperation agreement made in 2019 between LSR Group and Leningrad Region. The facility was approved for opening in 2021 and started work in April 2022. The dormitory has 19 private rooms and is fully equipped for living. The building and the adjacent area meet all safety and accessibility requirements for disabled people and people with special needs.

Staff of non-profit organisations and local government, as well as parents of disabled children from Russia and beyond come to St. Petersburg to learn from this ground-breaking project in assisted living. LSR Group is proud to share its unique experience in the construction of such facilities and keen to see them replicated elsewhere in Russia.

Kak Doma Temporary Assisted-Living Centre

The Kak Doma (“As Good as Home”) temporary assisted-living centre was built as part of the Tsvetnoy Gorod residential complex in partnership with the St. Petersburg Municipal Association of NGOs for the Parents of Disabled Children in 2021. It was opened in June 2022. The Kak Doma centre provides temporary assisted living for disabled people whose families need time to address specific problems. Duration of stay is determined on a case-by-case basis, but cannot exceed three months. The centre has capacity for 23 disabled people at a time.

The Kak Doma centre will operate on the same principle as assisted-living facilities, supporting disabled people in line with their needs. The three-storey building is fully adapted for people with special needs and severe disorders: it includes recreation facilities, a dining-room, an administrative area and a medical station, and offers 24/7 support by social workers. Residents at the centre receive help from psychologists and educators.

LSR Group provides support for various cultural events. Many such events were either suspended or moved online during the COVID pandemic. Highlights of 2021 included a charity concert for healthcare professionals under the title ”Thank You Very Much”, which was sponsored by LSR Group. The event was for female healthcare professionals in St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region who worked especially hard to meet the challenges of the pandemic. Representatives of the Leningrad Region and St. Petersburg governments expressed their thanks to healthcare workers at the start of the evening. The performing artists were accompanied by the Tavrichesky State Symphony Orchestra. The atmosphere at the concert was warm and friendly. The healthcare workers who attended the event said that it gave them a sense of community and joy and made them feel needed, important, and not alone at this difficult time. The event was rated among “Best Practices” by Delovoy Peterburg, the leading business newspaper in the Russian northwest.
