The people supported in Holy Childhood’s Day Habilitation Programs are able to take part in a wide variety of activities on campus and within the Rochester Community. Front Line Supervisors and Direct Support Professionals work directly with participants to develop necessary skills that will allow them to become more independent in areas that include, but are not limited to, communication, daily living skills, personal care, wellness initiatives and social skills development. Holy Childhood’s Day Habilitation Program offers 3 different types of programmatic options in effort to accommodate each individual’s skill set. Those 3 programmatic options include the following:
Day Habilitation Without Walls
Day Habilitation Without Walls is an innovative program that supports adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in community settings. This program provides participants with volunteer opportunities, wellness activities and visits to local libraries, museum tours as well as a multitude of other community events. The Without Walls program is able to provide the people we support with community-based learning opportunities that not only strengthens self-confidence, but promotes independence.
Transitional Day Habilitation Program
Holy Childhood’s Transitional Day Habilitation Program assists the people we support to become more independent with a variety of tasks. This program gives the people we serve opportunities to develop new skills, build relationships and volunteer within their local community. It is a person-centered program that focuses on supporting people to become more independent with day-to-day, non-vocational, daily living skills.
Senior’s Day Habilitation Program
Senior citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities are provided with a variety of social, wellness, and community based opportunities that incorporate their interests. In this group, the staff follows the lead of the people supported as it relates to the development of schedules, community events, and on-site activities.
