Safety and stimulation for adults with intellectual disability
Adults with intellectual disability who need help with mobility, feeding and hygiene find a safe haven, specialised care and an innovative, structured programme of activities at our Adult Day Centre (Eagles). Special transport to and from home is also provided.
Apart from caring for persons with intellectual disability five days a week, the Centre allows caregivers and family members the opportunity to take some much needed time off, and thus avoid burnout.
At the centre, members participate in:
- self-care and leisure time activities to stimulate growth in functionality;
- sensory stimulation to increase level of interest in environment and to improve hand function, normalise tone and improve posture and functionality where possible;
- group activities and opportunities for socialisation and communication;
- referrals for specialised intervention as needed i.e. Social Work, Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy;
- assistance with feeding, using the toilet, mobility and activity participation as needed;
- promotion of acceptable social behaviour.
