Our Care Offer

Protected living

Autism sheltered living is a core service we offer at Joy Living, and it plays a crucial role in helping people with autism develop the skills they need to succeed in life.

Autism Supported Living is a program designed to provide residents with personalized support and guidance as they navigate the challenges of growing up. Through this program, we work closely with residents to help them build the social and emotional skills they need to succeed.

One of the key benefits of autism sheltered housing is that it provides residents with a safe, low-stimulus and supportive environment where they can explore their interests and develop their strengths. Our team of experienced experts and mentors work closely with each resident to understand their unique needs and goals and provide them with the support they need to reach their full potential.

Another benefit of sheltered living is that it helps residents build positive relationships with adults and peers. By providing residents with positive role models and opportunities to interact with others in a supportive and inclusive environment, we help them build the social skills and confidence they need to succeed in life.

Perhaps the most important thing is that sheltered housing gives autism residents an excellent starting point to be able to do more and more independently in the long term. Through counselling, mentoring and other forms of support, we help residents develop the skills they need to deal with overstimulation and to indicate where their own limits lie.

All in all, autism sheltered housing is a powerful program that plays a crucial role in helping people with autism develop the skills they need to take the next step in life. By providing personal support and guidance in a safe, low-stimulus and supportive environment, we help people with autism build the safety they need to meet the challenges of growing up and build a better future.
