Social guidance for informal care families

Informal care social counsellors support the wellbeing, coping and functional capacity of older caregivers and care recipients.

Informal care social counsellors guide and advise informal care families and provide up-to-date information on services. Informal care social counsellors also organise informal caregiver coaching courses for new caregivers and the Life after Informal Care (Omaishoitajasta omaiseksi) groups for caregivers whose loved ones are moving or have already moved to a care home. The service is free of charge.
