Individual and reliable personal assistance at home or for leisure
What is personal assistance?
Personal assistance is suitable for everyday situations where a person cannot cope with their tasks alone due to their injury or illness. Personal assistance is intended to help the person to make it easy for them to make choices at home and outside the home (eg at work, study, hobbies, events, social affairs), leaving the responsibility for making choices to the person being assisted. The role of the assistant is to make the life of the assisted person easier, by making the wishes true. In this way the handicapped person's life will be moree equal - their choices become easier, more comfortable, and more enjoyable.
Where can I get help for myself and how? What tasks they will do for me?
A personal assistant makes your everyday life easier, for example, by helping to move, get dressed, assist with hygiene, tidy up the home, trade things and, for example, dealing to communicate with the authorities. The assisted person will be the one in lead, acting as mentor and in a way a leader at work. It means you will be the work leader and the worker your assistant.
You get to decide who will assist you, where and when, and how. If you wish, you can change the assistant, and we will help you with that change.
Disability services and the right for the service voucher
Personal assistance is the customer's subjective right under the Disability Services. Personal assistance is usually paid by the social services of the city where the person lives in. The personal assistance service can be obtained as a purchase service or with a service voucher . We will also be happy to help you navigate to the service voucher if you have not yet been granted the right to a voucher from your city.
Our operating area with service vouchers is currently in Espoo and Vantaa. We are the official service provider in these cities. With billing or other services you can order the work directly from us without the city's vouchers also in other areas than Vantaa and Espoo.
