Eldercare Services

In the Elderly Care services of HyMy Village, the social and healthcare students of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences will meet you expertly and without haste. Our staff, who are health care professionals, are responsible for the services. Together we can support your good aging.

Individual appointment

Do you want to have an unhurried conversation about your life situation? Do you need information about aging or are you interested in memory related issues? Want to discuss about loneliness or recommendations related to exercise and nutrition? You can come to us with any topic related to services, well-being or health that worries you. Welcome to chat!

During the appointment, we will map your life situation and you will receive individual guidance and counseling. The topics of the meetings arise from your wishes and needs. If you wish, you can come to the meeting once or more times depending on your needs.

For your benefit
