Supporting People with Disabilities in Sweden

Published on : 2/27/19
  • For over 50 clients in the City of Stockholm, Sodexo provides a service to provide people with disabilities with equipment to make their lives easier.

    Covering a population of over one million people, we are responsible for the provision, fitting, testing and repair of aid equipment.

    We help train referring physicians and therapists on the range of options available to patients, handle the prescription, work with the patient to decide on the best solution for them, and then fit the equipment to the patient. We continue to support patients as their needs change and evolve over time. To do this we employ 150 people, 30 of whom are physical or occupational therapists; stock a large warehouse with a wide range of aid equipment, deliver equipment to patients homes, and work with patients carers or relatives to help them with day to day issues.
