We are investing to address the capacity shortage
There is a growin shortage of nursing home beds in the Nordics. The demographic development is also contributing to a growing number of citizens of age 85 or older in the Nordics in the next 15 years.
Between 2020 and 2030, Attendo estimates a need for around 85 000 new beds in care homes for older people in Sweden, Finland and Denmark. Private providers have accounted for about half of all new production of nursing homes in Sweden and Finland in recent years. Attendo alone has contributed with more than one fifth of all the new beds in nursing homes since 2008.
Investments in new homes also lead to several other positive social impacts. Every new home with 54 apartments creates about 50 jobs once up and running as well as more than 30 full time employments during the building phase.
In recent years, Attendo has increased the rate of establishing new nursing homes and homes for people with disabilities in Sweden and Finland. In 2018, we broke a new record in openings.
