Sanerva Home

 

Sanerva Home offers intense assisted accommodation for Helsinki residents with challenging behaviour for whom no other service alternative has been found. Sanerva Home operates in recently renovated facilities in Myllypuro.

There is a total of 79 resident places at Sanerva. The residents are under 65 years-of-age with long-term illnesses and dementia whose mental and physical health as well as social competence have considerably deteriorated.

A home-like environment, security and communality form the basis of Sanerva Home's operations. Sanerva offers its residents 24-hour care and support, medical services as well as other support services in cooperation with the public health system.

The residents of Sanerva Home are cared for by a multi-profession work group that includes, amongst others, nurses and people with degrees in social work. A total of 46 people work at Sanerva Home. Admission to Sanerva Home is through the Social Services for the Homeless Unit (ASTU)
