Self-care coaching at Service Centres

If you have recently been diagnosed with a memory disorder, you and your partner can partake in self-care coaching. You will receive peer support and information as part of a friendly group.

On this page

Self-care coaching comprises a total of eight meetings. The groups for those with memory disorders and for their partners meet at the same time but in different rooms.

In the self-care coaching group, you will be provided with information about memory disorders, as well as tips for everyday situations. Decisions on the content of the group meetings are made in collaboration with the group members.

Persons who have received a memory disorder diagnose at the memory outpatient clinic will be referred to the service. You can also seek to attend a self-care coaching group together with your partner if you have been diagnosed with a memory disorder by the Neurology Outpatient Clinic (HUS) or a private doctor.

The service is free of charge.

The service is available at Kamppi, Kontula, Koskela, Kustaankartano, Pohjois-Haaga, Riistavuori, Syystie and Töölö service centres.

Ask for more information from the Service Centre or Senior Info.
