Homes for certain other in-patient care 'short-term housing' (SoL)

Short-term housing is temporary housing for example for elderly or psychologically impaired people, which provides an opportunity for respite for family members or rehabilitation for the individual.

Short-term housing may also be granted while waiting to move home after receiving health care, or to other, adapted housing. Short-term housing should offer a private room with a toilet and shower.

There must be a supervisor for the activity, who is responsible for the daily work and for ensuring that the service is of high quality and provides good care.
