Community Life / Day Services for Adults
People can explore their interests and participate in a variety of activities throughout the day. Getting out and being involved in the community go hand-in-hand with living a fulfilling and meaningful life.
People Benefit Greatly Through:
- Accessing their community: This may include volunteering or attending activities and events in the community.
- Recreational and leisure: Activities include swimming, bowling, spending time at local parks, movies, and eating out.
- Meaningful relationships: We encourage keeping in touch with loved ones through writing cards or emails, sending pictures, or making arrangements for visits.
- Maintaining and learning new skills: Continued training may be needed to become as independent as possible. Staff support people in increasing communication skills and in using adaptive communication systems. Other training offered include cooking classes, self-help, and social skills, computer classes, and money management.
- Self-advocacy: We provide training in many areas of safety and welfare. Topics include stranger danger, learning how to protect themselves from abuse, neglect, and exploitation, and learning what to do for severe weather or fire. They also learn what to expect at a doctor’s appointments to help them overcome anxiety and fears.
LifeScape also has a school program called Pathways to Life to help young people with disabilities, ages 18-21, develop skills for adulthood.
