L’ACCOMPAGNEMENT DES PERSONNES AGEES EN FINLANDE

In November 2018, Dialog Health organized a study tour on elderly care in Finland.
The goal of this study mission was to discover the organisation of care and the different types of nursing homes available to the elderly in various states of dependance.

During 4 days the group visited 8 organisations and establishments offering innovative services and confortable and friendly environments to the elderly. In Finland the focus is on human relationships and well-being for the elderly as well as the professionals taking care of them.

The discussions between the members of the group and the Finnish were about sharing innovative ideas, thinking about the setting of new processes back home and understanding the Finnish approach to elderly care.

The group flew back to France with a good knowledge of the organisation of elderly care in Finland and many good ideas to implement in their own care homes.
