Exceptional Programs to Enhance Health and Develop Skills
Gain independence and life skills
We provide two types of day programs: an optional in-home day program and a community-based day program, which is independent of our residential homes. Our programs are customized to the participants and offer the opportunity to:
- Learn various life-enhancing skills
- Participate in stimulating activities
- Gain more independence
- Have a sense of control over their own lives
- Achieve greater self-esteem
In-Home Day Programs
These programs provide customized, daily recreational, physical and educational activities focused on personal goals for residents in our homes.
LSA residents have the option to participate in the in-home program, or attend another community program of their choice. For residents whose health and support needs prohibit them from attending an external program, mental stimulation and physical exercise are provided so they can develop skills and maintain their health. Specialized consultants such as a dietitian, psychologist or physical therapist are also utilized to support residents in achieving their goals.

These programs provides life skills training and stimulating community-based activities that help participants achieve positive self-esteem, independence and a greater sense of control over their own lives.
Open to the special needs community, our Community Integration Training Program (CITP) provides meaningful volunteer opportunities for participants to develop vocational skills. Offering a 1:3 staffing ratio, CITP provides highly personalized support. The goal is for participants to become more independent and for some, even to gain paid employment. The program operates year-round, provides a structured five-hour day, is available on weekdays and can be tailored to fit the needs of the participant.
