program pillars - life skills (Part 3 of 6)
Independent life skills lead to personal agency. Despite our Members having challenges with the ability to do many tasks independently they practice these skills daily with assistance. Most of our Members focus on personal goals related to life skills such as being able to identify key places, signs, shapes and colors, assist with lunch preparation and cleaning, practicing laundry and folding skills.
On a daily basis their personal hygiene goals are supported by our direct Care Coaches and depending on their needs some focus on independence when toileting. The intention is for our Members to experience agency and focus on hand-eye coordination, practice asking or communicating needs and be able to grow more independently despite needing more hands-on support.
passionate about helping people?
Our Direct Care Coaches and volunteers are critical to support the needs of our Members as some require 1:1 support and hand over hand instructions. We are eager to connect with those who are passionate about the population we serve and are always seeking volunteer support.
