S1 form

Hello I am new to all this we are going to be moving to Switzerland in a few months time. I would just like someone to explain to me the S1 form which my daughter is entitled to. How does it work? Do I need to get additional insurance for her? She is an autistic adult. Thanks in advance for any help or advice

Re: S1 form

Welcome to the Forum. I have no idea, but have a bump and hopefully someone who knows more will be along shortly to help.

Adult with autism

Hello

Can anyone give me some advice. We moved here from the UK a few weeks ago. My daughter is autistic but she's also an adult. I have an S1 from the UK which I think entitles her to social care. I am looking for day services for her or any groups that she could attend . if anyone has been in this situation or can send me some advice that would be great thank you

Re: Adult with autism

Your profile still says Newport. Where is "here" in Switzerland, so our members can offer suggestions more relevant to your location?

Re: Adult with autism

I just did a quick search via Google and found an organization here in Switzerland that assists people and families with autism. Perhaps they could be of help? Here is a link to their website:

https://www.autismus.ch/

Apparently, there was also some kind of initiative passed in 2018 that aims to help people with autism better integrate into society. I'm not 100% sure that I interpreted that correctly, as my German is not so good. But here is a link to that page, and at the bottom of it, it looks like there is contact info for someone in regard to receiving financial assistance:

Re: Adult with autism

The link below will take you to resources in Vaud, but there is an option to chose other cantons in the upper left corner of the page.

I don't know much about it, but here is the jumping off ramp: https://www.kvg.org/en/domicile-in-s...--1--1077.html

Note at the bottom of the page where they ask you to register.

Re: Adult with autism

Found the following

https://www.myhandicap.ch/community/...olle_iv_rente/

Translation

Adult people with autism can take advantage of the following IV services:
- Early detection and early intervention
- Integration measures to prepare for professional integration
- Professional measures including daily allowance
- pension
- helplessness allowance
- Aids
- travel expenses
- Medical measures up to 20 years

You can check with your local IV office with what would apply in your specific situation

Yes but that refers to a SWISS insured person, where as an S1 form means the person remains insured in their home country...

There is no indication of what the U.K. is willing to pay for. The site says after registration the person is covered for healthcare but provides no other details.

My guess is that once the registration is approved they will be told what other entitlements they have.

Yes correct and for that I would contact the local IV office to check what applies.

If you already have a residual S1, this will not affect you. It will continue to be valid until its original expiry date.

Where to get advice
For further advice, contact Overseas Healthcare Services on +44 (0) 191 218 1999.

You can also write to the following address to ask for advice:

Re: Adult with autism

From your message I assume your daughter has high support needs. In a friends' experience, autistic adults can access certain services like Spitex (I guess it's like homecare) with a medical diagnosis and recommendation for support needs. I would suggest contacting a family doctor initially to see what is available with the documentation you have.

Re: Adult with autism

OP, one year later, how are things going? Could you please let us know? I know a family who might be facing a similar situation soon, and would appreciate any report you could give. Thank you.
