Description of the project
Løgstør Tilbuddene is the permanent home for 54 intellectual disabled persons between 18 and 80 years.
The resident lives in two different places in the city of Løgstør:
Bøgevej: Here lives 36 residents in 6 different houses. Every resident have their own apartment. The location is a 10 minutes walk away from the centre of Løgstør.
Købmagergade: Here lives 18 residents. The location is in the centre of Løgstør and is located close to the harbour.
We are 65 social workers and an administrative staff at Løgstør Tilbuddene.
We provide the necessary help around the clock, and ensure proper diet, hygiene and other necessities of life.
Our desire is to ensure The Good Life for each resident. We have an appreciative approach, and consider each individual as unique, and therefore always are entitled to be treated with respect and dignity.
During the day, many of the residents are on a safe, disability-friendly environment in protective workshop on BV Vesthimmerland.
The residents, who are not in protective workshop, are offered activities and company in the homes. Here ensure social staff, that the residents will have a fruitful lives.
Løgstør is located in the beautiful banks of Limfjorden. The environment is very influenced by the fjord and the town is an old fishing town. Today the fishing trade has declined and it is now smaller industries and companies doing different kinds of services but in the summertime, Løgstør is full of tourists, many sailboats and visitors are coming due to the lovely seaside.
There is a close relationship with the BV Vesthimmerland project and the volunteers will see each other regularly as well as live in the same flat.
