Today was a really interesting day. I was contacted by the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, and asked to meet Maria Larsson, Sweden’s Minister for Elderly Care and Public Health. She wanted to know more about my experiences and knowledge about the situation for people with different types of disabilities, so I invited her to a meeting at my office and we sat down for almost 2 hours.
It was a very interesting meeting with good discussions about everything from personal assistance to health care and elite sports. Maria Larsson is a warm person with many good values and ideas, and I look forward to our next meeting. We also had time for some laughs!
