Services for the disabled include various services that make the life and housing of the disabled easier. Legislation for the disabled aims to promote the opportunities of disabled people to live and act as equal members of society with others. Moreover, the aim is to prevent and remove the disadvantages and obstacles caused by being disabled.
Pursuant to Finnish law, municipalities are obliged to provide the disabled with various services and support.
Living and services at home
An important aim of services for the aged is that the aged person could live in his or her own home actively and with operational capacity for as long as possible.
Mental Health Clinics
To be a patient at the mental health clinic requires a visit to a general practitioner at the health centre first. It is a good idea to contact the health centre in your own area first to make an appointment to a doctor there. When needed, the doctor at the health centre will then make a referral to the mental health clinic.
