Guttmann Barcelona Life: Types of Stay

To ensure that Guttmann Barcelona Life functions as smoothly as possible, different types of stay have been established depending on the type of stay and the expected duration.

Duration of stay at the apartments:

  • Short stay: Only for clinical procedures at the Institut Guttmann that do not require hospitalisation and according to their duration.
  • Medium-term stay: More than 31 days or fewer than 6 months.
  • Long-term stay: More than 6 months and never more than 3 years.

Types of stay at the apartments:

  • Individual stay

An individual stay is considered to be the situation in which a person who meets the access and support requirements has been accepted as a service user, receiving services in an apartment.

  • Shared stay

A shared stay is considered to be the situation in which two people who meet the access and support requirements have been accepted as service users, receiving services while sharing an apartment. A contract will be established with each of the users who will be linked to each other, meaning that if one terminates the contract, this affects the other. Therefore, if one of the users of a shared stay withdraws, the other party will have to sign a new contract with the owner.

  • Stay with a companion

A stay with a companion is considered to be the situation in which a service user shares an apartment with another person who is not a service user, does not meet the requirements to be one, and is a relative or partner of the service user who offers support to him/her.

Supported apartments that should facilitate people to empower themselves to be able to live independently from the exercise of their personal autonomy and in a context of normalization and inclusion in the community.
