About Sweden – an orientation about Swedish society.

This theme is about growing old in Sweden.

The text describes what rights and opportunities elderly people have and what help is available. It also describes age discrimination and what you can do if you are subjected to such discrimination.

This theme is also about pensions and how your finances are affected as you grow older and no longer work. You will be asked to think about how you can live a good and active life after the end of your working life, and about how you can take care of your health as you grow older.

The text also describes what you need to think about when a family member dies.
