Community Habilitation is provided in the person's home or in their community. Community Habilitation works in collaboration with supports provided by other services and by the individual's informal natural supports.
Community Habilitation isn't just a service. It's a relationship between an individual and a trained staff person. As they develop a partnership, they take on life's day-to-day tasks and obstacles together.
Community Habitation services assist each individual to live as independently and productively as possible while promoting their safety and well-being. Services include teaching, support and assistance in many areas including:
Menu Planning - Staff not only help organize and conduct these tasks, they empower individuals to eventually perform them independently.
