There are four different offers for pensioners that cannot participate in the offers that the Health and Welfare Support usually offers elderly citizens, e.g., Tilhaldið.

The working and training rooms are for national pensioners who, psychologically, socially, and understandingly, can actively participate.
Day and evening support is offered according to needs and, therefore, must be applied through an application.
