What to expect

Caregivers who have helped raise adults with ASD and are familiar with their behaviors also know their needs. Therefore, these caregivers are the best resource in predicting what loved ones may have trouble with when alone, and can seek out the proper home care items to better enable semi-independent living.

People living independently with ASD can also benefit from autism home care products. Figuring out which ones will fit their lifestyles will depend on personal preference. If necessary, caregivers can check in from time-to-time to ensure that everything is going smoothly. A gradual transition from semi-independence to greater independence can be helped along by home care products designed specifically for those with autism. Once individuals with ASD are settled, visits from caregivers can transition to social ones rather than visits pertaining to a caregiver relationship.

Prepare Your Home

Adults with ASD who can live semi-independently can benefit from home care items for ASD, including tools like cognition aids, which can be used by one person, two people or a group. Autism communication devices can enable loved ones to better communicate, while calming tools help control a situation that could otherwise get out of hand. If adults with autism are prone to leaving their homes, wandering prevention can alert caregivers or neighbors of any problems.

Individuals with ASD who can and choose to live entirely on their own should take advantage of autism home care products that foster their independence. For example, if they love cooking, food preparation tools can be a fitting gift. It is essential for caregivers to show support and make sure loved ones know that help is always available.
