Summary

In Taiwan, more children with severe neurodevelopmental disorders experience abuse, neglect, are separated from family, and are institutionalized by the Taiwan government in nursing homes or long-term medical facilities, usually populated by the elderly. The Taiwan Love and Hope International Charity is running the first ever group home in Kaohsiung, Taiwan that adheres to a family-based model of care. Children experience the enjoyment of family life and a supportive community.

Challenge

Taiwan will become a super-aged society by 2026. Charitable funding efforts are currently focused on the elderly population. Unfortunately, Taiwan also has a growing number of neglected and abandoned children with severe neurodevelopmental disorders. The abandoned children are institutionalized in elderly nursing homes as young as 2 years old. The children almost always end up neglected in the nursing home because of their neuromuscular or psychiatric condition and incapacity to communicate.

Solution

The founders of the Taiwan Love and Hope International Charity are foster parents to a child with severe CP who survived abuse and was neglected in an elderly nursing home. Their other foster child has intense tantrums. She has moved from one foster home to another without any success and was about to be placed in a nursing home. The organization is running a flagship family-based model of care group home that can accommodate four children with special needs until they are 18.

Long-Term Impact

1) Children with special needs when pulled out of an elderly nursing home have a better life expectancy and opportunity to receive prioritized healthcare management services; 2) Placing them in a child-friendly environment that addresses their unique developmental needs create better opportunities for rehabilitation and positive development; 3) We have a flagship home that provides a loving environment to children diagnosed with psychiatric and genetic illnesses; 4) Help us open more homes!
