The Corliss Group Home Agency Day Program

The Corliss Group Home Agency Day Program | The Corliss Institute | Scoop.it


More than a Group Home. More than Independent Living. A Home. A Family. A Community.

Bliss Campbell's insight:

Corliss provides specialized training to meet individual needs in a Center-based Day Program. The program runs Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm. Individuals are supported in activities of daily living in addition to employment preparation. Individuals are also supported interacting in the community with visits to the local Y, weekly bowling outings, and other events of interest to our participants.

 

There are a wide range of activities to choose from such as computer use, reading, writing, and exercise.

 

Participants are trained in all aspects of work habits to prepare them for future employment in the larger community.

 

The Corliss Center is designed to enhance learning in a real life setting. Our clients enjoy cooking classes in our real kitchen along with learning appropriate cleaning techniques that they can apply in their home. We have a computer center that tailors individual and group training regardless if clients are beginners on computers or preparing to work in an office on a computer. The academic program focuses on everything from reading and writing to money management skills that staff help them utilize in the community.

 

The Day Program also provides social and relaxation time where clients participate in arts and crafts activities, play games with their peers or enjoy movies in our movie area. The Day Program also provides various role playing activities which are then transferred to the community.

More than a Group Home. More than Independent Living. A Home. A Family. A Community.
Bliss Campbell's insight:

Vår utvidet sysselsetting Program gir medlemmene med opplæring i arbeidsvaner, fylle ut programmer, bruke offentlig transport og muttere og bolter av arbeidsrutiner. Et hyppig problem for mange er at av mellommenneskelige relasjoner på jobb og hvordan å håndtere endringer i kolleger eller veiledere. Andre kritiske problemer kan være promptness og klær.

 

Noen medlemmer har daglige jobber på Corliss som forbereder dem for fremtiden av nettstedet. Corliss tilbyr uformell jobb coaching til de medlemmene trenger hjelp på jobben, i tillegg til fullskala støttes Employment Services (gjennom Rhode Island Office av rehabilitering tjenestene) for de medlemmene som har behov for støtte og cueing vil kreve mer enn to måneder av assistanse. Vi har funnet at nær halvparten av våre medlemmer kan og arbeider med minimum støtter og coaching når jobb og tidsplan er forstått. Samtidig er Corliss klar til å fortsette støtter, opplærings- og når angitt og behov.

 

I dag, Corliss tilbyr begrenset timer på stedet betalt arbeid for medlemmer, arbeid med byrået gjenvinning prosjektet, tilgang til off-site bedrifter og selskaper innhentet gjennom støttes sysselsetting nettverk og sporadiske arbeider av bedrifter i området som har behov for konkrete prosjekter skal fullføres eller posisjoner skal fylles.

 

Det bør bemerkes at Corliss ikke finansiere, tilbyr eller støtte lune Workshop 'arbeidsliv, og at noen "arbeid mannskap" utviklet gjennom byrået prosjekter er i naturen av trening og ferdigheter oppkjøpet bare: våre mål er ekte jobber for ekte lønn i integrert innstillinger.

Bliss Campbell's insight:
Shiremont, the newest Global Campuses “campus,” opened in 2011. Since then it’s grown to nearly 30 students. Classes, held at the college, local libraries and businesses, attract students from several nearby towns, including Enfield, Windsor, Hartford and Thetford. Because most students do not drive, being able to meet downtown has helped a lot, Eberhardt said. “Transportation is by far our biggest barrier for getting people to classes.” Read more: http://thecorlissinst.livejournal.com/2802.html

As far as the movement for dignity and rights for people with developmental disabilities has come, we can never afford to forget the dark times when these individuals were shunned, overmedicated, relegated to institutions and too often exploited and abused. This Program provides a wealth of social, civic, educational and cultural opportunities not only for Members and staff to interact with others, but for ‘others’ to do the same. Only by seeing, meeting and interacting with those in any community can the larger society extend the rights and opportunities that our Members have always wanted and deserved.
