Smiles 500 Care Club

500 Club Logo

The projects within Smiles 500 Care Club are managed by our Deputy Director – Georgi Opreanu.

In 2010, Smiles made an important decision that would significantly impact future financing and management of our work in Romania – to develop Residential Care Facilities. We started what was basically a ‘trial period’ at our Cihei HQ, where we converted a small facility for supporting Vulnerable Women into an eight (8) bed Elderly Care Home. At the same time we purchased land and launched a major appeal to build our own ‘purpose built’ Elderly Care Home in Salonta. Our small facility in Cihei was soon out grown and with eleven (11) residents by 2013 – we were pleased to see the opening of our first ‘purpose built’ facility very soon!

Tileagd Assisted Living Facility

Through our considerable experience with Elderly Care which started in Cihei in 2010 – we came to realise certain anomalies with the Romanian system we need to work within. One such issue is that as part of our Authorisation to Function as Elderly Care Homes, we are prohibited by law to take residents under the...
