Learning With A HandicapThe SELAM-Lebenshilfe is an organization founded in December 1990. Holder of the SELAM-Lebenshilfe are three parents-organizations from the Lebenshilfe in Oldenburg, Ammerland and Wesermarsch.

We are working in Oldenburg and the surrounding area.

Aim of the SELAM-Lebenshilfe is to offer, to coordinate and bring together ambulant treatment for people with handicaps in Oldenburg and the surrounding area.

SELAM-Lebenshilfe includes every form, heaviness and cause of a handicap in it's treatment. Our offer is orientated on the individual need of help and the wishes of the people with handicaps. Our assistents support for a few hours a week up to 24 hours day and night, if necessary.

Our principle is self-determination for people with handicaps. SELAM-Lebenshilfe is engaged in the integration of all people with handicaps in society.

Assistenz beim Wohnen (assistance for living) means that we are assisting more than 60 adults with handicaps in their apartments.

Assistance is given at home or in outside places, hourly, on a daily basis or on weekends. With this we advance life quality of families with a handicapped member.
