The delegation of Tallinn visited the house for the elderly, created by northern neighbors, to study the experience that can be useful when creating a similar house in Tallinn.
"Ten years ago we were not ready to provide such a service," - said Tallinn Vice-Mayor Tõnis Mölder, - "now we are able to meet the need for it, which is constantly growing. The concept used in the Nordic countries provides people with convenience, freedom of choice and all-round assistance."
In Tallinn, a house for the elderly will be created on Nafta Street, 1a. There will be 1-2-room apartments equipped with kitchen and other appliances. Its inhabitants will be people who, with some help from the outside, are able to live in a separate room and do housekeeping.
In March, the city government began to develop a program to create housing for seniors, and a support group was created in the city assembly, which includes representatives of all factions.
