On the other hand, Marisol Martinez’s visit to our office, a social worker, enabled us to clarify numerous aspects related to a centre for one hundred patients. Our daycentre is divided into two levels according to the degree of the Alzheimer illness. An effort is made to prevent patients with different degrees of the illness to relate to each other. The stratification of these levels also has a symbolic value: the lower the level is the greater is the degree of the illness. This way, the patients of the first stages will be located higher on the mountain. They relate to the surroundings since the degree of their illness allows them to enjoy outdoor activities. On the other, the patients with more advanced degrees of the illness, whose mobility has been decreased, maintain a contemplative attitude towards the environment with an easy exit to the workshops organised in the orchard on the ground floor.
