Over the past few decades, immigrants from all over the world have come to Sweden - people of all ages. Many of them now need to be taken care of in old people’s homes and their numbers are growing.More and more elderly immigrants are now choosing multi-cultural institutions because they fit their needs better. Radio Sweden’s Alexander Hirschfelder went to a home for the elderly in Rinkeby, a suburb of Stockholm mainly inhabited by immigrants.
