For the elderly

We support the health and well-being of the elderly and find ways of making a meaningful, active, and safe life possible for them.

Here you can find information about the services for the elderly and the ways you can contact us.

The Seniori-Info service of Western Uusimaa supports the elderly and their relatives when they have questions about the well-being and daily lives of the elderly and how they can become clients of a particular service. You can contact the Seniori-Info guidance service by phone or email or with an online contact form.

We at Seniori-Info will work with you to find different solutions and options for living at home and help you enjoy a meaningful daily life. We offer information about different options provided by organisations and companies in your area and we can direct you to the services provided by the wellbeing services county, if needed.

Here you can also find information about the different services for the elderly and about the granting criteria and client fees of the services. You access the services through the Seniori-Info service. If you already have a client relationship, you can contact your service provider directly.
