Intensive service housing

Intensive service housing works for you if you need our services around the clock.

Intensive service housing is intended for you if you need constant and 24-hour assistance in your daily activities due to a disability or illness.

In 24-hour service housing, we offer care and activities that help maintain and promote your functional capacity. We can, for example, enjoy outdoor activities and exercise with you.

Intensive service housing includes meals, laundry and clothes care, washing and cleaning services, as well as other necessary services.

We offer intensive service housing in group homes and housing groups.

You pay the rent and other costs of your daily life, such as medicines and other medical care services. However, the necessary assistance and support in housing due to your disability are free of charge to you.

For more information on service housing, please contact Counselling for People with Disabilities or your designated worker. Housing services are applied for using the disability service application form.
