History of Asor
Asor was established by Rizalina Jenssen in 1999. During her years as a nurse in the municipal health care sector, she saw the tremendous need for personnel to provide practical assistance and nursing services, particularly in the greater Oslo area. Since then Asor has recruited and trained health care personnel, with a strong focus on the company’s ethical and philanthropic responsibility.
Asor understands that the ability to communicate well in Norwegian is just as important as professional competency. From the beginning, Asor has provided in-house language training as well as help in gaining certification in Norway.
Home care services and practical assistance (Hjemmehjelp / Praktisk bistand) are available to individuals who need help due to illness, injury, disability, age or the like.
Asor is a private supplier of in-home nursing services, in-home intensive care, practical assistance and user-driven personal assistance (BPA). Asor seeks to supply its services to all of the inhabitants in the city of Oslo, municipalities in the Vestregionen, including Asker, Bærum and Drammen, and Vestby municipality. The contracts with these municipalities are, and will continue to be, the platform for this. The company hires, and will continue to hire, reliable, highly trained personnel. The company focuses, and will continue to focus, on health, safety and the working environment (HSE), continual competence-building, control routines and more. Asor seeks to be synonomous with quality in every link of the service chain.
We at Asor see how fast society is changing and that sustainable solutions must be found to meet the growing need for welfare services in Norway. Thanks to our extensive experience and expertise, Asor is in a unique position to follow these developments, particularly in home care services. Norway, like many other countries, is a multicultural society and not everyone speaks or understands Norwegian. We at Asor understand that the use of advanced technology, such as eHealth, is going to play a larger role in providing welfare services. Asor will strive to remain at the forefront, offering services based on modern solutions in a compassionate, friendly and trustworthy manner.
