Hemvårdsförvaltningen (home help services) are responsible for providing elderly care in Halmstad's municipality. If because of your age or disability you cannot manage your daily chores then you can apply for various kinds of help.
Hemvårdsförvaltningen has a rehabilitative and habilitative view, meaning we try to strengthen people's possibilities of living an independent life.
According to the Social Services Act people who cannot cater for their own needs and can´t get them catered for in any other way are entitled to assistance from Hemvårdsnämnden (home help board) to provide for their needs and way of life in general.
This assistance should guarantee a reasonable standard of living. The assistance should be such that it strengthens the individual's chances of living an independent life.
The municipality council is ultimately responsible for the people living and staying here get the help and support they need.
All activities run by Hemvårdsförvaltningen are based on its core value:
“We create confidence through our professional attitude with respect for people's equal rights and with humble treatment in our daily routines."
