Assisted Living

The Assisted Living supplements existing forms of residence for elderly people in Amriswil. It is an additional service to the tenancy agreement of the senior citizens' apartments of the Town of Amriswil Residential Scheme for the Elderly (ASA). The Assisted Living scheme is aimed at elderly people who want to live independently even though they have some nursing care requirements. The goal is to delay or prevent relocation to an inpatient care facility of Amriswil Old People's Home and Care Home (APZ). Contact: 071 410 23 43, Wohnen im Alter
