The 5th number of the series “Ordinary people” covers the subject of independent, assisted, or as they often say, “alternative” living for adults with psychophysical disabilities.
Today, there is no system of assisted living for people with disabilities in post-Soviet states. Young people live with parents and relatives, they learn self-care skills, learn to communicate, but they lack for opportunity to be independent. Nevertheless, singular minihostels for adults with disabilities were established in Belarus, Ukraine and Russia. You can read the brochure, and learn the work experience of these hostels and many other interesting things.
The brochure is addressed to families which look after young people with psychophysical disabilities, to specialists who render assistance and support to these people, and to employees of different governmental and non-governmental agencies.
