For Informal Carers

The Espoo and Kauniainen association of informal carers and loved ones (Eska ry) supports families caring for their loved ones with declined functional ability. The association is part of the larger Carers Finland association and also collaborates with other operators.

In the following videos, Eska ry's Executive Director Kristiina Mustakallio explains (In Finnish) what informal care is, how to recognise if you are an informal carer, and what kind of support is available to informal carers. In addition, the interview with informal carer Ritva Särkkä provides a point of view from the carer's side. The videos are produced by students of the Laurea University of Applied Science, in collaboration with Eska ry.

We would like to thank Eska ry and especially Executive Director Kristiina Mustakallio and Project Planner Anna-Leena Solhagen for co-opereration with us.
