The “Polichni” Guesthouse has been open since March 1996 under the auspices of “Amimoni”.
It is an Independent Living Educational Programmefor multiply disabled visually-impaired people and is the only one running in Greece.
It aims to help multiply disabled visually-impaired individuals to develop independent living skills.
Independent Living does not mean “live by myself”. It means living in an environment of equal opportunities and providing a range of options so that multiply disabled people can control their daily life. Multiply disabled individuals have the right to live in such a way that personal development, communication, maximum autonomy, social inclusion and support are possible.
The programme runs at a residence in Chalandri. In the particular property, the required modifications have taken place so that multiply disabled visually impaired people can access and use it, such as a wheelchair ramp, pictograms, orientation signs, use of different materials and contrasting colours.
