|14||Justification of the project
|“Nothing for us – without us” is a famous principle that is now increasingly heard in society.
The idea of creating a project “Smart home for an independent life” belongs to a young wheelchair user, participant of the project “Restoration of legal capacity” Alexander Goldaev.
Alexander understands that to create a truly “smart home” is difficult and very expensive, but he wanted was a technical device that will allow him to partially control their own lives, to interact with the world surrounding things: turn on and turn off the TV, light; to open and close the blinds; of self-drive in the right room, etc.
“Smart house for independent living” in the view of Alexander Goldaeva:
There are no thresholds in the house, the doorways are wide, the minimum number of doors. A wheelchair can easily travel from one room to another. Switches and sockets are located where they are accessible to a person in a wheelchair. The bed is wide and the same height as the stroller. There is a table near the bed, its surface can change position, the table has wheels and moves easily. There is a wheelchair access to tables, sinks, cabinets, etc. The bathroom is equipped with a spacious shower cabin with a pallet at the floor level, a toilet with a seat located at the height of a wheelchair and having convenient handrails for transplanting, as well as a washbasin with a large space under it for a barrier-free entrance. Glazed veranda that opens onto the courtyard. The house should have guest rooms in which participants of the projects “Disability Recovery Program”, “Life Skills Acquisition Program”, guests can live.
The house is equipped with technical means that help to cope with “everyday trifles”: turn on the light, open the curtains, close the doors, etc.
It is convenient to move around the yard and utility rooms in a wheelchair.
There is a small vegetable garden, greenhouse, pets and birds: chickens, rabbits, pigs.
Graduates of the Vesnovsky boarding school live in the house. They can work here as well. For example, social workers, helping wheelchair users, and can be employed in any institutions of the district.
The participants of the projects “Disability Recovery Program”, “Life Skills Acquisition Program” temporarily live in the house for the practical consolidation of the skills they received in the classroom, since it is more convenient to visit shops, a cinema, a hospital and other significant facilities while living in the town of Gluska.
The participants of the projects “The Program for the restoration of legal capacity”, “The Program for the acquisition of life skills” live in a “smart home for independent living” under the supervision of employees of the Vesnovsky boarding house, and graduates are accompanied by social workers of the Institution “Glussky district Center for Social Services of the population”
|The new living conditions of the participants of the projects “Disability Recovery Program”, “Life Skills Acquisition Program” in the “Smart home for independent living” will contribute to improving and changing (restoration of legal capacity, non-registration of legal capacity) the social status of people with disabilities. And they will also allow you to accompany graduates of a boarding school to the extent necessary, and not according to the standards of service established based on the disability group.
Living in a “smart home for an independent life” will be based on mutual assistance. Project participants and graduates of the boarding school will help each other in carrying out daily activities, obtaining the necessary information, solving household and other issues
