Individual relocation profile and relocation plan
Supporting children and adults with intellectual and sensory disabilities when moving house.
Although moving house is not uncommon for people with intellectual and sensory disabilities, moving can be a stressful event and have a large impact on a person’s life.
Bartiméus Expertise Centre Deafblindness has developed an individual relocation profile and relocation plan in order to support people with intellectual and sensory disabilities when moving house. To ensure the move proceeds as smoothly and efficiently as possible, this book provides guidelines and tips for the phases before, during and after the move.
The individual relocation profile and relocation plan was written to guide those who support people with intellectual and sensory disabilities. Special attention is paid to people with deafblindness. The individual character of this book makes it appropriate for a wide audience. The book can be used for a person moving between houses within the same residential facility, from one residential facility to another, or from a home situation into residential facility.
This book provides background information that can be used to create a personal profile for the person moving house. It also offers guidelines for an individual relocation plan, with room for practical guidelines and agreements about how and when to do what in the different phases of the moving process.
