A non-profit organization

Danish Deacon Homes is the leading independent, non-profit care provider in Denmark. We own a number of Nursing Homes and also administer and advise a number of affiliated care institutions. In total, approx. 60 Nursing Homes and other care facilities are included in the daily work of the Danish Deacon Homes.

Areas of competence 

Danish Deacon Homes specializes in administration, financial management and housing operations. We facilitate and hold special knowledge of organization management, management of human resources, recruitment, training of staff and vocational training. Capacity building of all our employees (including a leadership development programme), is a high priority. 
Danish Deacon Homes also provides building and construction consultancy, and we develop new care concepts, including architecture, development, construction management, and moving processes.

Danish Deacon Homes' values and Christian background imply that our work in care homes have the following overall aims:

  • To strengthen the individual's identity and equality
  • To respect other persons' beliefs, attitudes, values and lifestyles 
  • To provide high quality of work 
  • To care for human physical, mental, social, cultural and spiritual needs 
  •  To provide joy of life, social participation and involvement of residents, relatives, volunteers and staff. 

Whichever context Danish Deacon Homes works in, we wish to mainstream our humanitarian values in the work of construction, development and equipment. Danish Deacon Homes wants be known for putting people first, and for integrity, high quality service and competitive prices. 

It makes me very happy, that we have a stand towards spiritual needs, for example by praying and singing with the residents.
