Our AdaptAbilities family understands that some participants are more comfortable in their own home than at the centres.
We also take into consideration the fact that not everyone has the means to get to our centres, which is why we offer unique in-home services to ensure all our participants can grow, succeed, and belong.
Our Relief Care and Community Specialists are trained to provide in-home respite services for families to suit their unique needs.
Our programs are designed for children, youth and adults with special needs, such as:
- Asperger’s Syndrome
- Down Syndrome
- Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
- Learning Disabilities
- Anxiety Disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Cerebral Palsy
- Tourette’s Syndrome
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Other special needs
IN-HOME SERVICES INCLUDE:
Parents can run errands, book appointments, or visit with friends while our Community Specialist works with their child, youth, or young adult.
Connecting With the Community
Our Community Specialist will take the participant outside the home to engage with new people, help them shop for groceries, and partake in other experiential learning opportunities.
Through our in-home services, we’re able to help participants with their job search; whether they’re looking for part-time work, full-time work, or something volunteer-based, we work with the participant to help them find the right fit.
Some participants need an extra hand taking care of themselves, which our team can help with as part of our in-home respite program.
