Retirement homes

If you need more care than the home care can provide at your home you can be put into a nursing/retirement home.

An officer from the municipality will investigate your needs and determine if you are entitled to live in a nursing home.

All the elderly people's homes have staff throughout the day. There are also health care professionals such as nurses and physiotherapists in those homes.

All apartments have a phone jack, TV jack, security alarms and bed. If not, you may need to furnish the apartment yourself.

All who live in the retirement homes pay rent and a fee for service and care.

Nursing homes cost different amounts of money depending how big the apartment is and how much care is needed.

There are various retirement homes based on different needs.
