Eirsgaard Care Center
An offer for homeless individuals who have been discharged from the hospital to the street. Here, they can receive support and care.
Eirsgaard Care Center is aimed at homeless adults who have been discharged from the hospital but are not yet fully recovered after completing hospital treatment.
At the care center, the nursing staff provides peace and care for up to two weeks while you recover. The house’s team of volunteers provides care, chats with you if you desire or need it, helps with practical tasks, and offers healthcare guidance if you require it. During your stay at the center, you will have a bed, a locked storage space, and access to shower and toilet facilities.
Before staying at the care center, you must be referred by a social nurse or outreach worker. Then, the center’s staff will try to find a spot for you.
