Generation Concept

Norlandia is the only company in Finland that provides services for both children and the elderly and is responsible for such combined projects from start to finish. Our concept is based on Norlandia’s long experience in concepts for early childhood education and elderly care services, on our committed staff and shared values.

Our Generations-concept service block combines early childhood education as well as housing for the elderly and care services under one roof. There is also a dog daycare center in the block.

In our Norlandia Deli kitchen, local and organic food is prepared by our own chef, and the Deli Café offers breakfast, lunch and dinner packages to make everyday lives easier for  the families, visitors and residents.

According to Norlandia Generations Concept, a two-storey building containing service living and elderly care, has been built in the housing fair area. This connects the kindergarten and nursing home into a multi-generational entity, taking advantage of several synergies created both in building but also in the service content.
