Visitors can also take care of their errands via the day centre’s phone. At Illusia you can get help regarding accommodation and daily living, among other things. Our staff is supported in many scenarios by experts and a visitor is directed to the service in need.
At Illusia one can play billiards and card games, read, watch television or sit and relax. Illusia is continuously developed with the help of the visitors. Newly emerged ideas and feedback are reviewed in the weekly communal sessions.
