Welcome to the main street of my home care district, Aprikosgatan. I made such a nice video for you, guiding you through the area, only to find out I could not upload videos at my free-from-fee blog. Hrmpf!
Anyway, here it is, in pictures. I hope you can get a glance of this nice place, the perfect home care district, if you ask me, with a good socio-economic mix. I have patients living in training apartments (former homeless people live here for instance) and patients living in 55+apartments (which are recently produced, modern apartments adjusted for a comfort standard of elderly), and everything in between. It’s perfectly rough, grey, suburb and boring on the outside (although I think I managed to get some pretty pictures this sunny day), and full of exiting, marvelous life stories on the inside.
My only disappointment is that most families with foreign origin are very good on and used to take care of their elderly within the family, so I don’t get to know many other ways of living with home care than the traditionally Swedish.
