I know this is likely a stupid question but what are the Silvia sisters? Are they nuns or are they just a name for nurses? I had the same question about the Sofia ones

From the website of Silviahemmet Foundation:
The foundation continues to educate assistant nurses and nurses in cooperation with Sophiahemmet University. This year there will be 550 assistant nurses who have received the title Silviasister and 206 nurses with the title Silvianurse. In cooperation with the Karolinska Institutet the international and swedish Master Course in Dementia Care for Physicians have 25 students this year. The first six Silvia Doctors received their title from H.M. Queen Silvia in 2015.
Next year the first Silvia Occupational therapists and Silvia Physiotherapists will be decorated. Read more about Karolinska Institutet’s Master’s Courses in Dementia Care for Occupational therapists and Physiotherapists.
Silviahemmet also provides non academic education programs, for example education for familycarers as well as other professionals in the health care and social care sector. The foundation certifies the education level for nursinghome units as well as hospital wards. Today 38 units are certified by Silviahemmet and more units are in process.
Silviahemmet has also co-founded the Swedish Dementia Center, the national competence center for dementia.

Three Silvia Sisters took care of princess Lilian at her home Villa Solbacken after she was diagnosed with Alzheimers.

So silvia sisters are assistant nurses (I assume like a LPN here)? And silvia nurses are the full? That makes more sense. Just never heard sister used to refer to a nurse, except perhaps the grey nuns here in Canada who in the past worked in hospitals as nurses often.

Queen Silvia attends at these events as often she can to personally thank the students for having chosen training in dementia care and to wish them luck in the future.

On Wednesday queen Silvia delivered brooches to 32 new Silvia Sisters.

Queen Silvia told at Stiftelsen Silviahemmet's (Silvia Home Foundation) 20th anniversary celebration on 17th May about a new concept of accommodation for people affected by dementia, SilviaBo. SilviaBo is a concept for innovation in the future housing construction, an attractive, durable and suitable accommodation that allows for young and elderly people suffering from dementia, as long as possible to stay in their own homes, alone or together with his family and still have a functioning everyday.

Queen Silvia has been seen walking near the Drottningholm Palace, at a place the dementia home is planned to be build, with Wilhelmina Hoffman, the managing director of Silviahemmet.
Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad has met queen Silvia in the work of planning the new apartments.
- The Queen is very involved in the work, said Margareta Thorgren.
Silviahemmet out at Drottningholm offers day care for dementia patients.
Now the queen goes on with SilviaBo - six apartments for dementia patients being built by Skanska and Ikea project BoKlok.
- The Queen is looking forward to develop Silviahemmet and a number of apartments to be built next to the home, says Thorgren.
Already this spring, queen Silvia told about a home for demented people being built with Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad, and they met in person in order to plan accommodation.
Last summer, they met again, this time on Öland.
Building of the apartments starts in December. In May next year they will be ready.
- The idea will then be evaluated to see if it is possible to develop. All those who suffer from dementia shall be able to search a home in SilviaBo and manage to stay there financially. The idea is that they should be financially able to stay there and get the best help if you suffer from dementia, says Margareta Thorgren.

Queen Silvia has given an exclusive interview to magazine Äldreomsorg (Elderly care).
Queen Silvia tells about the sadness to see her mother change while suffering from dementia. She also talks about how it sparked an idea to a whole new training to increase knowledge and raise the status of the personnel closest to the elderly.
- At that time there was almost no education about dementia, says Queen Silvia.
This year Silviahemmet celebrates 20 year anniversary, education has grown from enrolled nurses to nurses and doctors. Today this practical training for dementia care is a growing Swedish export product and foreign study groups from all over the world come to see and learn about the business.
- When they were called Silvia Sisters, I was first embarrassed. But I thought that if I can help to raise the status it, is of course right. A kind of quality assurance, the Queen says to freelance journalist Lasse Granestrand in Äldreomsorg.
