Elderly

Updated: 

This is an easy-to-read page.

Many children were born in the mid-1940s.
Most of those children have now reached retirement age.
This means that the number of elderly in Sweden will increase over coming years.

People also live longer now than in the past.
It is expected that in 2050 the number of people above the age of 85 will double.

An increasing number of elderly chose to continue living at home.
They can receive home help service and other support.
Therefore the number of care facilities for the elderly is also declining.

Safe housing and senior housing are so-called 'intermediate housing forms' between regular housing and special housing.
Based on the Social Services Act, safe housing and senior housing do not require an assistance decision.

Here you can read more about the housing market's situation for the following groups:
Youths
Students
Special forms of housing for people with a functional impairment
Housing for new arrivals
People born outside Sweden live differently
