Sheltered housing for the elderly

For sheltered housing, a personal care and service plan will be prepared together with the client, which defines the services the individual client needs. The services available include meals, clothing care, cleaning, security, recreational activities, assistance with running errands, basic care and health care or treatment of illnesses.

Rent, a basic fee, a meal fee and a service charge for the individually agreed services will be charged to clients of long-term sheltered housing. The fees are defined based on the client's services, taking into account the client's ability to pay, so that the client will have 20% or at least EUR 254 of their own net income at their disposal.

Long-term 24-hour sheltered housing is arranged for elderly residents of Helsinki at the Kinapori, Kontula, Riistavuori, Roihuvuori, Syystie and Töölö comprehensive service centres as well as at the Hopeatie, Itäkeskus, Kannelmäki, Madetoja, Munkkiniemi, Rudolf, Puistola and Vuorensyrjä service homes. Long-term 24-hour sheltered housing is also arranged at the service homes of private service providers as a purchased service and via a service voucher.

Prerequisites:

The aim is to primarily arrange the necessary care in the client's private home with the help of home care and other non-institutional services. A place in 24-hour care cannot be granted if the client has not been using varied non-institutional services.

In order to define the fees, the client must provide information concerning their income and assets.

The service is intended for the elderly and for those under 65 with multiple illnesses.

The service is only for citizens of Helsinki.
