Independent Living Skills

People with disabilities learn the basic skills of daily living in individual and group counseling settings that incorporate personal instruction and practical experience in real life or simulated situations.

The goals of the program are to assist seniors to live independently in a private residence, using physical and occupational therapy devices, special equipment and specialized assistance and to cope with other requirements for successful independent living. These include the ability to travel alone, live within one’s personal income, maintain acceptable grooming and appearance, cope with legal, family, or social problems and maintain health through self-care and the effective use of medical services.
