The need for services is always assessed individually and in cooperation with you. If necessary, your close relatives and support network can participate in the assessment. You can also give consent to another person to act on your behalf in disability services. For the service needs assessment, you will meet a Disability Services employee in your home, at our office, remotely, by telephone or in another suitable way. Your background information, functional ability, life situation and plan for future services will be recorded in the assessment. With the Disability Services employee, you can reflect on your situation and the service package that best suits it. You will receive practical advice on everyday situations and guidance on services for people with disabilities. We also provide support and guidance in the use of the services and their coordination.

The primary forms of support are always the basic municipal services, such as family social work, adult social work and social services for the elderly, including home care. Disability services are granted when the need for services cannot be met by basic services.  

Call our helpline (tel. +358 9 816 45285) or send an e-mail (vammaispalvelut@espoo.fi) to get advice in your situation.

If you find it difficult to manage your personal affairs, you can authorise somebody else to handle your matters with Disability Services on your behalf. Read more: Contact with Social and Health Services on another person’s behalf.
