Assisted Living Centres

The Municipality offers four homes for the elderly who require some form of assistance.

Guidance on assisted living and Application forms
Because of the limited space in the various assisted living centres, applications are prioritized according to the need of each applicant and not according to the date of application. Those who are determined by the Visitation Committee to have the greatest need are granted a place first. Application forms for a place in the assisted living centres are available at the four care homes and at the Snarskivan, (+298 30 20 10).
