ANNUAL REPORT 2017

Creating new models for assisting and encompassing leisure activities for young people with severe functional diversity


Letter from the president Dear friends and collaborators, One more year it is a pleasure for me to present our memory. I want to emphasize that our sheltered housing has 5 places subsidized by the Generalitat Valenciana and it is already the house of Ismael, Adrián, Irene, Arturo and Braulio. They need to become independent, like any young person of their age, and our sheltered housing allows it. They are assisted 24 hours a day by professionals who, in addition to taking care of them, develop their abilities to the maximum. They enjoy an active social life thanks to the companions with whom they share their home, the volunteers and the relatives. Parents, siblings and other families have free access to housing and can participate actively in the day to day of the house. Entering our Lukas Foundation Center is discovering a new way of addressing serious functional diversity. Understood from the integration and the need to make therapy centers and sheltered housing environments where anyone would want to stay to live. We hope that our pioneer model can soon be a reality in more places in Spain. Several young people have also enjoyed our temporary stays. Especially Ignacio, who has been living in the home for almost 6 months participating and enjoying all the activities with his classmates. We have offered more than 900 therapies, of which 10% have been awarded scholarships. Our adapted bicycles are very successful and are increasingly demanded by different entities. All this would not be possible without the support of our professionals, volunteers and donors. Only thanks to your help can we continue moving forward with enthusiasm in our projects. Among all of us, we achieved a lot of smiles in our kids, they deserve it! A very cordial and affectionate greeting

• Residence Home In our home, which has 5 places subsidized by the Generalitat Valenciana, these young people become independent, like any adult of their age, and are assisted 24 hours by professionals who develop their capabilities to the fullest. They also have an active social life thanks to the housemates, the volunteers, as well as their relatives, who have free access to the house.

Lukas Foundation - Annual Report 2017

Our sheltered house is a pioneer in this particular field responding to the social need which arises from the increase in the life expectancy of people with severe multiple disabilities. Families find themselves in a complicated situation because residential facilities for these young people are scarce.

Physical therapy in room: We use the Neuroevolutionary Concept as a baseline, assessing and treating children and adults with alterations in the development of function, movement and postural control.

Water physiotherapy: All the benefits of physiotherapy are provided in an environment which facilitates relaxation of body and mind. This therapy improves the physical, respiratory and emotional condition.

Water Therapies: Therapies in the aquatic environment under the parameters of the Osso method. This method treats the person as a complete being, and seeks the balance and improvement of the visceral, motor and sensory functions.

Lukas Foundation - Annual Report 2017

Sensory stimulation: Our sensory stimulation room is equipped with structures and materials (vibratory musical water bed, light panel, fiber optic cascade, bubble column, to mention a few.) These are designed to carry out basal and multisensory stimulation, ideal for people with severe cognitive and motor impairments.

Other therapies available Logopedic Rehabilitation: With medium and long term focus, logopedic rehabilitation allows the acquisition of language as the main means to facilitate interpersonal communication and as a way of understanding oral and written language. Assisted therapy with dogs: Alternative and innovative therapy that includes an animal for motivation. This type of therapy helps to improve the cognitive, physical, social and/ or emotional functions of the participant. Occupational therapy: A quality intervention is offered, encompassing the person and their environment, designed to favor the progressive inclusion into the social structure. We provide advice on technical aids and adaptation, as well as accompaniment until the individual and the family learn to integrate each other’s needs.

By seeking participation and mobilizing interested pupils we were able to provide information to the general population about functional diversity. This is a powerful tool to promote social change and create a more fair and supportive society.

ACTIVITIES IN MADRID Our activity of support of families with children and young people who have serious functional disabilities in the Community of Madrid is gaining momentum. In 2017 we awarded grants for the adaptation of a wheelchair and therapies to improve the quality of life of these children and young people, especially neurological physiotherapy under the Bobath concept, respiratory physiotherapy and Shiatsu. In addition to these grants, aid has been given to other entities such as Son Ă ngeles, for the implementation of therapies and the Bosque Public School for the building and use of its children's integrated playground.

Riding the Camino de Santiago with adapted bicycles? In June of 2017 we participated in a charity event organized by Solidarios Non Stop of BBVA AM. This was a memorable experience. The generous support received showed that with broad support from many people from all walks of life, goals can be achieved. Making the Camino de Santiago with an adapted bicycle is possible, and from now on, our goal is that every year more and more people with disabilities can be encouraged to participate in this adventure.

BOCCIA

USERS This game of strategy and precision is similar to petanque, although it has its own rules designated by an international regulator. It is a perfect sport for people with severe functional disabilities, and it is possible to join the Boccia Federation in order to compete, as our competitor Arturo has done. In 2017, 47 boccia matches were held in our center.

This sensory garden also gives families the opportunity to relax in our fully accessible orchard.
