Nurse Leena Kivelä worked for years at a tuberculosis clinic. Her husband Eero Kivelä, on the other hand, contracted tuberculosis at a young age. Before, caring for people was humane and communal, they say. Coronary patients are more lonely.
Hämeenlinna Perch, in the middle of a rugged pine forest, is a handsome funky building. It is a former tuberculosis treatment center.
A stone’s throw from the sanatorium, in the middle of large chokeberry bushes, lies a cozy detached house. It is Leena and Eero Kivelän home.
