Living independently your daily life is big challenge for people who have disability/ies. They can face many hindrances due to their disability, their socio-economic situation but also due to the environment they are living in. Once they will integrate the inclusive community and start living among other service users, you need to be sure that, for each beneficiary, an individual planning regarding his/her tasks and budget will take place.

You will encounter different situation and pay attention to every single personal case. For some people, it will be the first time that they try to live without family member(s). Other(s) might only know institutions or other framed support. Your aim will be to give the right tools to the beneficiary to live autonomously and independently.

Everyone will have his/her own pace and you will quickly understand the different needs and difficulties. You will identify them, planning the tasks and budget management and finally make sure that everything is appropriate.

The main task will be to set up and improve the independency skills living of each beneficiary in the inclusive house.

This task requires you to look over each individual situation through their weekly tasks and budget.

 The elaboration of the individual planning of the week is divided into 3 specific tasks:

  2. Planning
  3. Verification & Improvement


  1. Identification of needs / goals / difficulties:

Once a week, you will take the time to sit down with the beneficiary and writing the identification of needs / goals / difficulties:

Regarding the individual tasks of the beneficiary, it could concern: personal hygiene, dressing and clothing care, health care, cooking, eating, nutrition, home management or safety.

Regarding the budget and financial management, make sure you identify all the positive incomes (social & health financial support, salary, insurance…) and the costs of life/bills of the beneficiary (rent, energy bills, telecommunication costs, shopping…).

At this point, you will have a list of needs / goals / difficulties for each section (tasks section and budget section). Regarding budget management, you will find many supports in the resources of this module.

 2. Planning:

Once the identification lists are dressed, you will have to plan all the solutions you found out. You will help the beneficiary with his/her weekly calendar. Pay attention that different type of disability will need different type of calendar and have different needs/goals/difficulties.

Verifying with the beneficiary how did the task go and is the budget approximatively respected. Through this verification you will have feedbacks from the beneficiary, write his/her comments.
