The Foundation has 2 rooms available for short-term stays.
The purpose of these rooms is :
- to host persons with autism so that their families can take a short break or have time to rest
- to host persons with autism who have severe behavioural difficulties and occasionally require more intensive supervision than usual
During the week the visitors take part in the day-care centre activities, or if they come at the week-end, in the activities at the lodgings.
They are placed under the supervision of the educational team, which may be enhanced according to the skills and behaviours of the guests.
Short-term stays are intended for all persons with autism of any age who are resident in Luxembourg. Nevertheless, urgent requests by families or by the Ministry will be addressed as a priority.
For 2014, the rate set by ministerial convention is EUR 73.83 per day. A simplified procedure exists whereby applicants can request financial assistance if required.
It is absolutely essential for families living with a person with autism to take a break from time to time, and this is why the Short-term stay service was created. The service is open all year-round, 24 hours a day.
