Humana uses technological solutions in its new housing facilities to create added value for residents: IT to communicate with loved ones, technological innovation to reduce fall injuries and lighting solutions that support biological clocks are just a few examples.  

“When you move into one of Humana’s facilities you should feel like you are moving home. Material selection, room design, colours and lighting are important components for well-being and cosiness. We look forward to collaborating with the municipality, its associations and its citizens to create a business that realises Humana’s vision that everyone is entitled to a good life,” says Eva-Lotta Sandberg, Business Area Manager for Humana Elderly Care.  

This is the third elderly housing unit where Humana, together with Odalen Fastigheter, is investing in the future of elderly care. Building new elderly housing means major investments, but it’s in line with Humana’s plan to reinvest in innovative operations, according to Sandberg. 

“We are pleased to continue our valuable partnership with Humana and to once again build a new, innovative elderly housing unit,” says Alex Mabäcker Johansson, CEO of Odalen Fastigheter.
