"In two years' time, Simon has Holmér, 21, allowed her dog Mira to be with him when he visits the elderly in the job. He has submitted a medborgarförslag about to start a hundteam in home care in the municipality."
"– All that I visit has been jättepositiva, there is nothing negative at all, " he says."
"the 21-year-old Simon Holmér has worked in home care in the municipality of Örnsköldsvik in almost three years. For more than two years ago he took Mira, which is a crossbreed of German shepherd and labrador. It wasn't long until he let Mira go with you on visits to the elderly, something that even the Örnsköldsvik Allehanda written about."
" We have activation once a week, then we will come and have a coffee or so in a half hour-hour. It started with that I asked if I could bring the dog next time, and I was, " says Simon Holmér to Aftonbladet."
"In the municipality, there are already hundverksamhet in retirement homes but not for those who get help at home. Simon believes that a hundteam of home care had been positive in several respects and have therefore filed a medborgarförslag."
"– It leads to increased security and joy. If one starts in time and make their lives better so they won't have to move into accommodation, they can stay at home longer. There are not enough places, " he says."
"”Nothing negative at all”"
"the Dog Mira is nice and calm. Simon is clear that the meeting is entirely voluntary. And hundgoset is appreciated – not least by Ingrid Tjernström."
"– She has never been a dog person, but she thinks it is really pretty and it is so funny. I think it is great, " says her daughter Eva Sedin."
"According to Simon, the interest from the municipal side has been cool. They have, among other things, talked about a high risk. But Simon hopes that a hundteam can become a reality anyway."
"– There are already available so I don't understand what the difference is, " he says and continues:"
"– All that I visit has been jättepositiva, there is nothing negative at all."
