Still Hard at Work
The servant home in Oeschberg in Bern canton is the only retirement home in Switzerland that caters solely to servants and maids. It might be better to say: the last generation of hired hands and maids, because the professions are dying out. The maids and hired hands who live in Oeschberg still feel as needed as ever. Because their old people’s home has a large farm where they can continue working, if they so desire.
