Programs for seniors


Typically, adults who receive our services have an intellectual disability or other developmental disability or condition such that they require assistance with personal-care, require mobility assistance, and use alternative communication strategies. Our services focus on improving functioning and participation through:

  • understanding and communicating with the world (cognition)
  • moving and getting around (mobility)
  • self care (attending to one's hygiene, dressing, eating and staying alone)
  • getting along with people (interpersonal interactions)
  • life activities (domestic responsibilities, leisure and work)
  • participation in society (joining in community activities).
