Hi everyone,

I am interested to become volunteer in Sweden and help elderly people who need care.I am prepared to do one year volunteer work in order to gain experience and learn Swedish language.Do you know how can I find some nursing home or something similar to get involved with my plan?
This can also be a private home ,I would do all in house work for example washing,cooking,going to the shop for groceries and taking people to the doctor or hospitals,
I am 33 years male speaking fluent English and I am easy going person with good personality and I want to change my profession .If you know someone who need personal help I am ready to relocate to Sweden ,ideal person would be a senior male or even man and woman who need in house help.
I am Croatian and I am allowed to live in Sweden.Also I have a car,bus,truck driving licence,non smoker,married,no kids,non alcoholic.Christian.
I have some references from UK,Norway...
Thank you

“I am 33 years male speaking fluent English” are you, should it not say “I am a 33 year old male speaking fluent English.
However enough of that talk to Arbetsförmedlingen. I do know that Sweden has a wonderful scheme called “fas3”, here you can work as long as you like for nothing.
