Home and Community Habilitation
ABC Caring Home's and Community Habilitation program offers personal assistance for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to build daily living and social skills. Tailored to each participant, program services may be utilized in the home, in the community, or a combination of both. ABC Caring Home's clients and their families are the decision makers regarding where and how they receive services to best fit their goals and needs. Individuals are paired with an associate, who assists in developing skills necessary for every day living. This team approach also allows for access to community resources that foster enhanced socialization and independence.
Daily Living Skills
Many adults with disabilities live at home with parents or caregivers. ABC Caring Home's Home and Community Habilitation program empowers adults with the skills they need to eventually live independently or in a group home setting.
Our participants focus on a variety of daily living skills. They include:
· Health and safety
· Money management
· Meal preparation
· Choice and freedom
Independent living is not the only goal of the program. Our clients also gain confidence and independence to engage in the community and access resources and life-enhancing activities. Many of these activities help develop vocational skills while teaching socialization. Our clients take part in many community, recreational and social events, such as:
· Arts and crafts classes
· Going to doctor appointments
