Weekend Enrichment: LIFE
Caregivers rest while loved ones learn
Respite hours can be used for this program.
Attendees in February will experience a true intergenerational social afternoon. We will meet at Asheir Manor assisted living home, 20 Riverwood Court in Potomac. We will have the opportunity to use our independent living skills on various tasks that need to be done around the home (vacuuming, dusting, raking). Then we will enjoy lunch with our new friends who are residents at the home. After lunch we will have a Valentine’s Party with our new friends.
Please remember to bring your own lunch!
Are you the perfect candidate?
Weekend Enrichment: Life classes are designed for adults with low support needs who have goals of living independently. Those who are wanting to move out and need to learn/practice general housekeeping, cooking, scheduling, and independent community living. This is designed as a drop-off program where the adults will be performing tasks as independently as possible.
This unique enrichment program is designed for adult community members who must be able to conduct themselves safely in the community, a 1:5 setting, follow 2-3 step directions, exhibit minimal behaviors, and handle all personal needs.
C attended her first LIFE session. She was very pleased and excited about what they learned - vacuuming and cleaning. She even vacuumed the house the next day. She needs some more practice and to learn to look for dirt and dog hair! So far, we are very pleased.
A attended the LIFE event today. It was a rainy day but he had a good time practicing his cleaning skills at the house, learning about pet care with Layla the Chihuahua, and playing Scrabble. Making new friends is a plus!!!
