What is living at Roihu Group Home like? 

Our well-lit facilities are located on three floors, with each floor featuring nine apartments and a shared dining area, living room and balcony.  

You can decorate your own apartment the way you want. You can invite guests to your apartment or use the shared facilities of your floor or the basement floor group space for meetings.  

Every apartment has its own bathroom, and all apartments are suitable for wheelchair users.

Our sauna facilities are located on the basement floor, which you can access with a lift.

You will dine together with the other residents living on the same floor in the dining area, where food is delivered from a kitchen on another floor. If you want to, you can take part in retrieving the food, setting the table or filling and emptying the dishwasher. 

Our residents can go to the sauna once a week. You can take showers in the spacious bathroom of your own apartment. 

What is everyday life like with us? 

On weekdays, some of our residents attend work and day activities, while others are on pension at home. 
Many of our residents enjoy spending time together in the living room or dining area of their residential floor. There, you can chat with the others, watch TV or play games, for example. We are also occasionally visited by care dogs.

At weekends, many of our residents visit their friends or family members or have guests at the group home. There are cafés and eateries near the group home, providing nice places to spend time in. We also sometimes go to a restaurant to eat or to a theatre performance together. 

On weekdays, we receive meals from our in-house kitchen, and at weekends, our meals are transported from the nearby Roihuvuori Senior Centre. 


The staff of Roihu Group Home are present around the clock to help you and the other residents with everyday activities. We will support you to help you make independent decisions and guide you towards independent life.

Our staff consists of practical nurses, instructors and care assistants. 

Near the seashore 

Our group home is located close to the seashore, and Roihuvuori Cherry Park is only a short distance away. We make trips to both when the weather allows. Roihuvuori Sports Park is just around the corner, and you can watch baseball games there in the summertime. We have trips across the city in summer.

If you use public transport, buses 80 and 82 operating between Itäkeskus and Herttoniemi will bring you here. Services, such as shops and the local library, are within walking distance from the group home.
