Life Skills Supports
We embrace the Office of Developmental Programs’ philosophy of Everyday Lives, which promotes Choice, Control and Freedom for everyone over their own lives. Every person is entitled to a life of meaning and joy, and at Shadowfax, we recognize that people are happy and fulfilled when doing things they like to do.
For people who are not as actively involved in the community at this time, we offer plenty of opportunities in our onsite programs. This program provides a high level of staff support for people who have more intensive staffing needs. Each person has the opportunity to be involved in activities he or she enjoys. Individual plans are developed based on the needs and desires of each person. Whether it be Spa Day, cooking classes, improving fitness and mobility, playing games, or relaxing, our staff are committed to ensuring the people we support have a fun and fulfilling day. Some people enjoy sensory experiences, while others benefit from enhanced socialization and communication experiences. People enjoy these activities and more in a comfortable, friendly, and stimulating environment.
Daily living needs for each person are met by our dedicated staff. Caring and compassionate staff are well trained in meeting the needs of those they support, from personal care to meaningful activities to community participation. We are able and equipped to provide extensive assistance to people with more complex needs.
We also provide programs for seniors who want a more relaxed and less structured atmosphere. Activities are similar to what we offer in our other programs. Whether it’s taking a leisurely walk in the neighborhood, reclining and watching a western on TV, or doing crafts, people choose their activities throughout the day. Some seniors are loving life at Senior Centers on a part time basis.
All services are licensed by the Office of Developmental Programs and/or The Department of Aging. Our services are provided at our main office at 386 Pattison Street, York. For more information on the Shadowfax Day Services, please contact us.
