Then a person with home care met an average of 24 different staff, an increase from 19 in the two previous years, and 11 in the survey in 2018.

Focus on home care

Linus Fogel (S), chairman of the care and welfare committee, tells SVT that the home care service is an area they focus on, and admits that the figures do not look so good.
