Association History

Our union was founded in 1974 as National Association of Entrepreneurs of Boarding Houses for Seniors 'Digenis' by Commission Decision 756/74 of the Court of Athens.

Until 1987, the president was Mr. Gerasimos Yiakoumatos, from 1987 to 2005 Mrs. Helen skirt, and from the elections of 9 March 2005 a new Board emerged, with Mr. Stelios Prosalikas as chairman.

One of the first measures was the modernization of the name of the statute and the logo so the decision 626/2005 of the Athens Court union renamed it as Greek Care Homes Association (P.E.M.F.I.).

The association represents all legally Care Units for elderly (M.F.I.) located within the Greek territory, which are estimated to be 120 having a capacity of 10,000 beds.

The new administration which was elected on 9/3/2005 has a 3-year term and during this time, it worked on:

  • proposals to the competent bodies for modernization of units and changes in the legislative framework,
  • the participation of pension funds in the subsistence of the elderly (already two funds TSAI and TSMEDE participate)
  • proposing for specialized training of the staff and efforts to join D' K.P.S. and commissioning of studies on scientific approach to the problems of the field,
  • participation in the Pan-European carrier EDE.
