Gubbe was founded in 2018 to help elderly people live happier and more active life. Gubbe is a preventive and rehabilitative care service that supports older people to be independent and active. The company's new type of service for the elderly connects an elderly person with a Gubbe, trustworthy and happy companion who visits the elderly person regularly. Gubbe ranges from household chores and guided mobility to caring activities.
Gubbe has expanded its operations quickly and in addition to the Finnish market, the company also operates in Sweden and the UK. Gubbe chose Staria's International Accounting and Payroll Services to support company's international growth in their countries of operation.
"We chose Staria because we wanted a partner that supports our journey as an international growth company. We look forward to our cooperation with Staria, where together we will solve the challenges, that come with when the company grows," tells Paula Suurmaa Head of Finance at Gubbe.
Staria becomes a Gubbe Godparent
Loneliness among the elderly is a huge problem in Finland. Gubbe's sponsorship program enables companies to provide regular gubbe visits to lonely elderly people for a year, while offering meaningful part-time job for young people. The aim is to get as many godparent companies involved so that no elderly person is left alone. For many, gubbe visit is the highlight of each week and even the only encounter they have during the week.
Staria and Gubbe are starting a new collaboration, in which Staria joins Gubbe's godparent program by providing one lonely elderly person with a Gubbe service for a year.
"Gubbe does important work, so we are excited about the new co-operation and the opportunity to support Gubbe's journey. Responsibility is at the heart of Staria, and that's why we are honored to be part of Gubbe’s Godparent program. We believe that the co-operation will be very rewarding for both sides!", states Artti Aurasmaa, CEO of Staria.
