As in many other socities, the aging population in Denmark is growing, which results in more people needing care. In order to continue providing quality care, one has to look at new approaches. Wellfare technology and rehabilitation are such examples. Hillerød municipality helps 1500 elderly citizens in their own home. As part of the Danish Welfare model elderly and weak citizens have granted physical training, practical help (cleaning) and nursing in their home.
“If the Elderly citizen, no longer can take care of themselves in their own homes, they will be offered a care home. The overall approach is the active living approach. The goal is to provide support and training for the citizen to remain self-sufficient for as long as possible.”
