Our role in society

Ambea is one of the leading care providers in Scandinavia. We work with the elderly, and people with disabilities or a need for psychosocial support. Our mission is to ensure quality of life for every person in Ambea’s approximately 950 units. Seeing and hearing them is the heart of our company.

But we also look up and see the world through the eyes of our clients – municipalities. Will they have enough resources in the years ahead? As care needs grow sharply, financial pressures intensify and the care worker shortage deepens, smart solutions, partnerships and innovative solutions will be crucial. Ambea has a key role to play here.

We are a company that dares to test new ideas, strives for continuous improvement and continuously develops our units and our employees. We are big enough to make a difference and want to be a role model that works together with municipalities to create as much safe and secure care as possible from every valuable tax krona.

Always in the best interests of our care receivers. Always guided by our vision: We make the world a better place, one person at a time.

We work for high quality care, adapted to the individual.

Our services

Elderly care

At Ambea’s just over 100 nursing homes, our care receivers live in their own apartments with access to communal areas, activities and mealtimes. Staff are on duty 24 hours a day. We also offer home care in selected locations across Sweden.

Disability care

For people with permanent disabilities, Ambea has care services for all needs and stages of life: from child care homes and schools to group homes, assisted living facilities and day services for adults. Personal assistance is also offered in Norway.

Psychosocial support

Ambea offers support for people with
psychosocial problems, such as substance abuse, self-harming behaviour or criminality. These initiatives include HVB homes, assisted living facilities, foster homes, sheltered housing and non-residential care.

Competence and staffing solutions

Ambea offers flexible and effective solutions for welfare service staffing.

Competence development

Ambea’s training company, Lära, provides training and competence-enhancement programmes in social
work, care, schools and treatment – both internally and externally.

Clients and contracts

Ambea’s clients are municipalities across Scandinavia that purchase care for their residents. The services can be divided according to contractual form:

Own Management

Care placements under Own Management operations are offered in premises that Ambea rents with longterm contracts, usually 10–15 years. Due to the long duration, the premises can be tailored to Ambea’s working methods and concepts. Municipalities purchase placements according to need.

Contract management

Contract Management means that Ambea takes over an existing care service in the municipality’s premises and runs the unit for a specific period of time, usually four to five years, often with a possible extension of two to four years.

Staffing and training

Separate services, or subscriptions and framework agreements. Customers include municipalities, regions and individual companies.
