Assisted living 

This is considered to be a service for youths or young adults of different cultural origins aiming to gain independence in their own flat. They are assisted in their everyday life. Flats are provided by a young person or their guardian, a selected partner or the organisation. This is an intermediate step on the road to a self-responsible way of living, with such support based on flexible, intensive professional support.

Both level and type of assistance are adjusted to a young person’s needs. The degree of autonomy, status of school education and professional training, social relationships and the ability to meet the challenges of everyday life are admission criteria.

This way of support aims at youths and young adults of age who due to their individual situation need help in terms of developing their own personality and living a self-responsible life. An intercultural approach is a matter of course.

This is an intensively assisted living in organisation-owned flats. This type of assistance pertains to minors between 16 and 21 years of age pursuing the aim of social participation and gaining independence. Occupants are provided practical support and assistance in life in order to open up new educational and professional perspectives.

This type of assistance also pertains to unaccompanied minor refugees who considering their experience gained as refugees are independent to a certain extent, who are prepared to actively plan their life and who accept assistance.

It isn’t easy for young mothers and fathers to find orientation as a young family, to establish sustainable relationships and to meet the requirements of a family.

This type of service pertains to minor pregnant minors as well as young mothers / fathers and their children whose individual and social situation is likely to require assistance and guidance for them and their children. Such assistance aims at a self-responsible life of mothers / fathers. Existing resources regarding care and upbringing of their children are reinforced and extended. Assistance may be provided prior to delivery thus helping cope with the new situation.

Such service may be provided as individualised ambulatory measure in an organisation-owned flat, in the assisted person’s flat or in connection with a project office.

A continuous professional assistance ensuring a high level of protection for the child to be looked after is based on a round-the-clock responsibility. In addition to professionals the setting may be supplemented by a midwife and a child nurse.

This social work service assists parents suffering from mental impairment or psychological stress in their child nurturing responsibilities. These impairments are a special challenge to the persons concerned, their families and their social environment. By consultation and assistance such families are given an opportunity to extend and reinforce their resources and protection mechanisms.

In an ambulatory setting our experts can help mentally impaired and psychically stressed people accomplish their parental role and identify and meet their children’s needs. They should achieve a high level of autonomy and organise everyday life in a self-responsible way to the greatest possible extent. These people may be supported in their own flat or in an organisation-owned flat.
