-          Foster Home Care is an important and sought-after complement to Arjessa’s existing offering of treatment services.  It is important for Humana as a company but even more so important for our clients to now have the opportunity of receiving even better treatment and care. Our goal is to be the leading care provider in Finland and to get there we need to broaden our operations, says Rasmus Nerman, Group CEO of Humana.

-          The most important part of what we do is of course finding the right family placement for a child. Through close collaboration with the family, the municipality and other parties we will ensure that the child has the best possibilities for a well-functioning life. It goes without saying that all our work is carried out with care and respect for those we help, comments Janne Telén, national manager for Welfare Services.

During the Spring of 2017 Arjessa has recruited and educated foster homes who are now able to welcome children with varying needs. Advanced Foster Home Care is being offered in Ostrobothnia (Österbotten) but will eventually be offered throughout all of Finland.
