Narrative

This program offers a combination of life skills training in housekeeping, meal preparation and assembly of arts and crafts projects. Periods for recreation and exercise are included in the daily schedule. Clients can utilize the campus pool, the gym, take walks and attend music class. Some clients are able to pursue paid work options. This combined approach of socialization, basic work/life skills development and recreation has been very successful with residents and clients who cannot maintain attention for long periods of time and need to strengthen their physical stamina and social skills. We maintain a 1:4 staff to client ratio, enabling us to address each client’s needs.
