Hi. This is going to be a bit vague but I tried looking for work in 'old peoples homes' as I am a nurse. It would seem, from my findings, that most older people, especially the cypriot people are cared for by their families at home. The typical 'nursing home' which we have in the UK, as far as I can find out doesnt really exist here. There are private retirement villages, aimed at expats I think, who have doctors and 24 hour nursing care exist, altho I only found one of those and its private, costing several thousand euros per month. However, when i tried to contact them the link was broken. I think that most expats who return to the UK do so for that very reason - there is no provision for them in a 'home' environment here in cyprus. Please, anyone else correct me if I am wrong - these are only my findings. Deborah

You're right many cypriot families care for the elderly in their own homes usually they hire an asian person to care for them as this works out cheaper than a nursing home. There are homes for the elderly in each town. I found this link which you might be interested in:

I was just told there are some really good (and expensive) nursing homes in Nicosia and Limassol. My mom will ask for more details and let me know. I will let you all know.
