What is it like to live in the Elovägen housing unit?  

You reside in a private room, which you can furnish and decorate according to your personal preferences. 

On weekdays the majority of our residents typically participate in day activities, with many actively engaging in leisure activities afterwards. We cherish group outdoor activities and communal games, and frequently partake in shared activities such as drawing, singing, crafting, and attending theatre performances. 

In addition, our residents often join staff in cooking sessions, enhancing our sense of community.
