Swedish Care International (SCI) is an international active organization that develops, packages and exports Swedish elderly and dementia care. Our vision is to better dementia and elderly care by basing it upon the care philosophy of Stiftelsen Silviahemmet. SCI is active throughout various activities and platforms within dementia and elderly care. These areas, individually and together, create good opportunities for extending the provision of adequate care conditions for elderly patients, people with dementia and caregiving relatives around the world.
