When we pronounce such words as the "boarding house for elderly" we imagine the gloomy picture of a state establishment with walls painted in dark colors, heartless and cruel treatment of the medical staff, bent and humiliated people who have to exist without any hope for home, warmth and care.

They are residents of this home. It is their home made like in a fairy-tale in order to give them a worthy rest.
