Consult our Fact Sheet and Case Studies to learn more about Adapted Housing Services and well established AHS across Europe.

Adapted Housing for Rare Diseases

Adapted Housing Services represent a particular type of service, often associated with multiple disabilities. Sometimes called ‘therapeutic apartments’, these services allow people living with rare diseases to develop and enjoy some level of autonomy by living within the comfort of their own home, alone or with peers, assisted by supportive staff, rather than being placed in an institution.
