  • According to a new survey by Swedish Radio News it can be still difficult for the elderly to get a place in a nursing home, with at least 1,000 people denied a place in elderly care and nursing homes during the first half of this year, according to the statistics.
  • Among those turned down are elderly citizens who are both ill and feel scared or isolated.
  • "One feels very isolated of course," says Maj Britt Porsander, who is in her 90s and lives in Västerås.
