The real estate object consists of a land plot of 50 000 m2 and several buildings, two of which are planned to be turned into the Retirement Home premises.
The institution will be adapted to provide long-term 24-hour social care and rehabilitation. In the residents' rooms, each bed will be equipped according to the needs of each client.

The Retirement Home "Citas Mājas" has a huge yard and flower and apple tree orchard. The blackcurrant, currant, gooseberry bushes will be planted this season so that seniors will have the possibility to harvest them. There is a plan to build a greenhouse and cultivate a small garden as seniors in Latvia have green fingers and like to cultivate a favorite crop or herbs.

Latvia has the 10th world's largest share of the population over 65 (20.3%).
The aging population's phenomena combined with an average salary growth create an increasing demand for high-quality private senior care facilities.
The world is aging at an unprecedented pace, and the European populations are definitely much faster than most other countries. The number of multi-generational households is declining across Europe, limiting many families' ability to assist elderly relatives.
The scale of population aging in many countries indicates that 1 in 6 adults will be over 80 by 2050. This compares to around 1 in 15 at present levels. Over the '80s are more likely to suffer from chronic and degenerative health conditions, such as dementia, that require specialist nursing care and propel the need for full-time residential care.
This triggers opportunities for private initiatives to supply sufficient qualitative and suited housing for the growing elderly population. Investor interest in the healthcare sector is partly a reflection of structural change in global property markets, with investors increasingly seeking alternative sectors.
A largely fragmented and state-controlled care sector has historically limited the investment opportunity, but this is now beginning to change with major private sector operators increasing
their market share.
