Rehabilitation of frontline veterans

  • Service
  • Helsinki
  • Public service

The rehabilitation of frontline veterans is carried out through funds allocated by the state. The rehabilitation of frontline veterans can be applied for by a veteran, who has been granted a frontline soldier, frontline service or frontline badge.

Inpatient rehabilitation is carried out in the rehabilitation institutes approved by the State Treasury. The spouse of a frontline veteran can also participate in the inpatient rehabilitation, in the same institute and at the same time with the veteran.

Outpatient and day rehabilitation is provided in the care institutes chosen by the city. Outpatient rehabilitation may include foot care, if the care facility is able to provide it.

The rehabilitation services are applied for with the Rehabilitation Application Form of Frontline Veterans, which are provided by health stations or veteran associations. An assessment that is less than a year old can be attached to the application as a doctor's statement.

To whom and on what terms

The service is only for citizens of Helsinki.

Service vouchers are used in the service.

Background information

Anyone who finds or suspects that their health or functional capacity have deteriorated with age can contact the health centre about a health check for an older person. In addition to a basic check, the older person’s memory, functional capacity, alertness and capacity to cope independently can be examined as part of the health check.

If the health check indicates that the older person needs support for living at home or temporary or permanent care outside the home, the doctor will refer him or her to an assessment of service needs. Social welfare service experts work together with the older person and their family and friends to establish how the necessary services can be organised.
