What is everyday life like with us? 

With us, you will be living in your own apartment, which you can decorate together with your loved ones and our staff. Our apartments are 26-m2 studio apartments with a toilet and a shower.  

You will also have access to our shared facilities, which are a group space, dining facilities and sauna facilities. We do laundry in a shared laundry room.  

You can choose whether you want to eat in your own apartment or with the other residents of the group home. We serve breakfast, lunch, a snack, dinner and supper at the group home.  

We spend time together at Mörssäri. We heat the sauna once a week, bake, listen to music and occasionally go to a restaurant or a café.

Mörssäri has a pleasant yard where we hang out together. We play yard games, in autumn and spring we hold yard work bees, and in winter we make snow lanterns and such. And in summer we barbecue, of course! At Mörssäri, you can do things you like.  


We have 15 workers, and our staff consists of social services specialists, practical nurses and a registered nurse. 

Our staff are present around the clock. On weekdays, three workers work the morning shift and five workers work the evening shift.

Our weekend staffing varies depending on how many clients are present at the group home. We always have one worker working the night shift. 

Nature and services close by 

Mörssäri is located in a detached house and apartment building area in Maununneva. A grocery store, bus stops, pleasant outdoor activity areas and the Kauppakeskus Kaari shopping centre are all located near by.

Mörssäri also has access to a vehicle shared by disability service units, which we use for our trips.  
We receive health care services from Kannelmäki Health Station and the Disability Outpatient Clinic.
