I’ve just spent a week in Denmark and it wasn’t long enough!
Despite the peculiar beginning to the week (get caught up here), I’ve found the Danes to be extremely welcoming people. Every single person at Specialområde Autisme (or Specialist Area Autism) were very happy to show Jasmine and I several of the homes and services for people who are on the Autism disorder spectrum.
The communities around the city of Aarhus, where I was based for the week, cater for people of all ages, with a variety of care available depending on their individual needs. From those who are just old enough to leave home and want to start living independently, to those who need more one-on-one help every day, and also nannas and pops who have their own homes, but within a communal space that gives the citizens company and places to socialise, as well as professional help whenever they need it.
