Individuals may choose to receive residential, day activity, community access, and/or outreach supports
Residential Program- Alberta and Ontario
Assistance with maintaining a household and life skills are offered to individuals in their home. Support is provided on a continuum of desire and need, with the goal of assisting individuals to enhance their abilities towards independence.
Individuals gain awareness of responsibilities to caring for their own home, with the utmost respect given to their right to make their own choices and dignity of risk.
Individuals typically have one to two other roommates who share in the responsibilities and offer companionship. Each household also has the opportunity to decorate their house and make it their home.
Our Day Options/Community Access Program is continually evolving to meet the dynamic desires of the individuals we support. Opportunities available present the spectrum of needs the individuals have requested. The program operates Monday to Friday year round.
