Why are we doing this? Persons with authism will always need support and special care. In Poland, the sad truth is that normally the entire burden of taking care of autistic persons is with their parents without much, if any, support from the public institutions.
When the parents get too old for this 24/7 task (which is mentally, but often also physically, very demanding), the public system does not provide for a proper support. In public nursing homes, persons with authism do not have a chance for proper care respecting their dignity. Existing institutions are focused on supporting socially high functioning persons, who have the ability to communicate their needs in their daily life.
This is why we would like to build a Home specifically tailored to the needs of adults with autism, including those with more severe forms of autism.
