The groups market themselves through social media and have a joint telephone number where people in the risk groups can reach out to them, partly to get help with errands, but sometimes just to talk.
“Together with the housing companies, we have asked tenant associations and owner associations for assistance in putting up posters in stairwells, where our telephone number can be found, with the message to the elderly to call for assistance when needed”, says Joakim.
Several houses already have posters in the stairwells, and right now they are waiting for responses from additional companies to help spread the message.
"The service is completely free of charge, payment is made after delivery of goods and proof of receipt. We just want to help keep the elderly healthy!”, says Joakim.
