Vattuniemi Group Home

We provide housing services tailored to the needs of adults with disabilities.

Nestled in the scenic area of Lauttasaari, Vattuniemi Group Home enjoys excellent transport connections by the sea. Our group home specialises in offering intensive service housing for nine adults with developmental disabilities, ensuring round-the-clock support and care.

Furthermore, within the same building, our group home offers four transitional apartments, providing supported housing to residents who receive assistance within the comfort of their own homes.

Our commitment to comprehensive care is evident as some of our residents actively engage in work and day activities, promoting personal growth and independence.

Our team consists of nine social services and health care professionals, working collaboratively to ensure the well-being and support of our residents.

Our residents also have access to a sauna and shower rooms, as well as a spacious terrace-like balcony, providing areas for relaxation and enjoyment. 

We promote active participation in daily activities, such as cleaning, laundry, and dining-related tasks, tailored to your individual abilities and needs. Your weekly and daily schedules are thoughtfully structured to ensure that you receive the support and care necessary for your well-being and personal growth.
