A feeling, an air... a sense of home
AriaDiCasa™ is an Italian expression that does not mean 'like home' or 'home'. The expression is more poetic - it is about the feeling and sensation, the quality of the air almost.
AriaDiCasa™ is about being somewhere entirely supportive, that has the capacity to refresh your life, meeting your human, sensory, wellbeing needs. It reduces and removes unnecessary stressors, and makes life much much easier for the support team who collaborate with the community to make life as meaningful and joyful as possible.
So it is not about repeating the standard home environment that can often lead to many of the difficulties and exacerbate the symptoms of various issues such as dementia, autism and others including nursing care. Rather our model creates the sense of safety, positive support, affirmation and meaning that are the heart and springboard of home life. This is a powerful effect, people who took part in our pilot project didn't want to go home, they wanted to stay, to live in the place that felt like home. Real home enables and is inclusive toward the people who inhabit it, and is fully supportive of their needs, senses and an optimally positive, healthy daily life.
