[Excerpt] Care Home X is situated in a relatively large city in Finland, in the grounds of an old mansion owned by the municipality. In 1919, a care home for elderly people was established in the buildings of the mansion. At first there were 20 residents in the care home but this number has risen to 62. Care Home X is a long-term care unit with traditional elderly care wards but which also has psychiatric wards and a Swedish-speaking elderly care ward.
