Parenting Support

Rooming-in care and parenting support

Working as a foster-home and a corporate special home we also have a possibility to arrange effective rooming-in in different units. Here children and young people can settle down and also stay with their parents under the professional quidance. Tarja got a multi-professional  education on working with families, so it brought the idea of starting this unit project. Foster-home animals also feel themselves pretty comfortable here.


The unit is located in Honkaranta ,12km from Kiuruvesi to Iisalmi direction by the lake Kiurujärvi. In addition to the main building on the site of 2 ha there are:

  • lakeside sauna
  • smokesauna
  • spacious warm hall, where one can get a car repaired or fix on something bigger
  • small "studio" with a kitchenette

An important part of the work with families is biological parenting support. Our task is counselling the activities of parents with their children. Counselling and meaning activities are also arranged to them on the basic of individual approach.
