People in diverse circumstances can find a suitable form of housing in the diverse living accommodations offered by altra schaffhausen. We offer a total of 58 dwelling places - plus assisted living.


Four dwelling forms


The four types of accommodation offered by altra schaffhausen complement one another and each lead to the next possible continuative solution, culminating with independent living in their own flat.

A coordinating contact person is available to all residents to assist in daily arrangements and development of future perspectives.

The focus in care is on individual and tailored support based upon the solution-oriented approach (LOA) approaches.

Before entering altra living, a cost approval must be available, and for persons residing outside the canton, a guarantee that the costs will be covered (KÜG).

Adult living expenses are subject to IVSE-B and youth living by IVSE-A (IVSE = agreement between cantons reg. financial support for people accommodated outside of their canton of residence).
