Day Support Options
We can help you reach your personal goals as they pertain to your person-centred plan. A range of services and activities are offered Monday through Friday during the day.
The ‘Wawanosh Innovation’ Centres are located at 2 easy to access sites in Sarnia. The Wawanosh Innovation Centres have a broad range of activities taking place based upon the interests and needs of potential participants such as:
- adult literacy / numeracy
- learning life skills (nutrition, cooking, addictions, safety at home and in community, finances, healthy relationships, etc.)
Wawanosh Innovation Centres are also a great launching point for community participation. It’s a great place to hang-out with friends and enjoy activities. However, our goal is to use the community as a first resource – much of what you may want in your life can be found in community – opportunities for jobs, volunteering, recreation, relationships and experiences. Your community is rich in possibilities. We’d like the opportunity to help you get there!
Are you close to, or over the age of 55, and don’t wish to work anymore? Then our Seniors Programs may be for you!
The focus of our Seniors Groups are to assist with retirement planning, health discussions related to aging, nutrition and food preparation, hygiene as one ages, ‘seniorcise,’ community participation and group outings. Assistance is provided to transition into community retirement programs, as well as recreation and leisure programs.
If you are unable to participate in work opportunities due to medical and/or behavioral needs, then ‘Alternate Day Options’ might be for you.
Service options are based on your needs and personal goals as they pertain to your person-centred plan. Activities may include daily living skills learning that to enable you to live more independently. These are just a few examples:
- hygiene skills
- laundry skills
- cleaning and dish washing skills
- good nutrition and cooking skills
- whatever you can think of!
Also, physiotherapy; physical activation and sensory stimulation and development are provided, along with recreation and leisure activities and community based outings and participation. If you need it, we can also provide you with attendant care such as toileting, dressing, personal grooming and feeding.
The home base for ‘Alternate Day Options’ is our Activity Center located at the corner of Murphy and Wellington Streets in Sarnia. You can choose to participate either on a part- time or full-time basis.
The Community First program is just one way we assist people through the transition from sheltered work activity to more personalized supports. The goal is to facilitate community connections that allow you to discover new opportunities to participate and engage in your community. You can be assisted to pursue and establish integrated community-based supports, partnerships, connections, social roles, and friendships according to your person-centred plan.
