Frösunda offers personal assistance to disabled children, young people and adults all over Sweden. Our assistance offices function as easily accessible meeting places for staff, customers and users and we're there to help with everything, large or small. And you can rely on getting service with a smile.
Before choosing a personal assistant, every customer is given the opportunity of meeting a number of assistants, each of whom is quality-assured by us. The customer chooses both a regular assistant and a stand-in. We always guarantee that the customer will receive assistance.
Besides assistance, customers have access to a range of stimulating, instructive activities organised by Frösunda – we call this our Plus Programme.
Frösunda assumes total professional employer responsibility for its assistants, who always enjoy direct access to the staff management and receive extensive support from the company. Their working conditions are properly regulated. We also assume responsibility for their training and personal development, not only for their own sakes but because we want to ensure that Frösunda is the carer that offers its customers the best possible quality of life.
Accommodation – privately managed and on contract
Frösunda manages accommodation both of its own and as contracted by the local authorities. We lay the ground for confidence, personal development and good living conditions by offering the resident the support and services that will ensure him or her of the best possible quality of life.
We base our work on personal plans designed to strengthen the individual's ability to live as independently as possible. Our own accommodation is adapted to the needs of people with Asperger's syndrome, high-functioning autism and other neuropsychiatric functional disabilities. We also run accommodation on contract from the local authorities. This is open to people with acquired brain damage, mental retardation, autism or conditions similar to autism.
Frösunda offers a wide range of daily activities of various sorts. Each activity has its own speciality and aims to offer a meaningful occupation for enhanced quality of life. For people with mental retardation and those with autism or conditions resembling autism, we offer just about everything, from near industrial-style production to countryside excursions, art and nursing.
Daily activities are also available for people with acquired brain damage. Here, we build upon the potential we believe that every individual possesses. As an assurance of quality, an interdisciplinary work group made up of people involved in these activities has compiled a programme describing the approach to work with people with acquired brain damage. This clearly indicates the approach, objectives, measures and evaluation methods to be used.
Frösunda runs a compulsory-level and upper-secondary special school for pupils with autism or conditions resembling autism. We proceed from the needs of each individual student in an effort to prepare him or her for an adult life, with a home, job and spare-time activities, that will be as independent as possible.
The basic idea behind the school is to combine the study of ordinary school subjects with challenging activities and to help the students prepare for their meeting with the everyday community. All work proceeds from the concrete and strives towards the abstract.
We offer individual coaching for individuals with Asperger's syndrome and other neuropsychiatric functional disabilities. The aim is to enable them to live as independent a life as possible. Support may be given either in their own homes, during their leisure periods or at work. Among other things, the method involves social narratives, structure in words and writing, open communication and mutual trust.
Short stay away from home for children and young people
Our short-stay residences accept children aged 10 and up with mental retardation, autism or conditions resembling autism. We work to individual plans and keep the focus firmly on development. A period away from home offers activities and experiences of all sorts and in duration may be anything from one weekend per month to quite a bit longer.
Frösunda also offers short weekend stays. These are organised round active groups and aim to provide participants with meaningful, enjoyable leisure-time activities outside their own home.
Team Frösunda, the world's greatest
There is a big difference between athletes who has or has not a disability. Much of the time is spent on organizing practical issues around the sports, like arranging with sponsors and travelling. This means that chances of working out and really concentrating on your sports is lost. Team Frösunda gives you the opportunity to really focus and commit yourself to your sport and training.
We offer personal assistant that takes an active role in your training and helps you organize and manage all the practical issues around your training. You are being coached by your personal assistant who is trained and specialized in your sport. Maybe you will become one of the world's greatest, maybe not. But you will certainly gain a better health, better self-esteem and a larger social network.
