United by the Mountains - from a short break to independence

Fundacja Ładne Historie/ Nice Stories Foundation, Poland

The impact of active forms of respite care on changing leisure time habits of people with disabilities and their families. As part of the presentation, we want to present our own conclusions on the conditions that must exist as part of the respite services we provide, so that not only provide care, but also contribute to increasing the possibilities of the persons with disabilities of organizing their free time on their own - on the basis of our experience resulting from the implementation of the project "Connected by the mountains", under which we organize mountain tourism for people with disabilities and their families. Since we organize mountain expeditions in the Sudetes - full of emotions, warm gestures, but also heroic deeds, in which people with disabilities and healthy people take part together. The idea is simple and at the same time unique: it involves organizing trips in which entire families can participate - this principle applies to both: people with disabilities and our volunteers. We also want to raise the topic of respite care as a service that should be designed for the whole family.
