Life Skills Supports
We embrace the Office of Developmental Programs’ philosophy of Everyday Lives which promotes that everyone is deserving of Choice, Control and Freedom over their own lives. All are entitled to a life of meaning and joy. At Shadowfax, we recognize that each person is happy and fulfilled when doing things he or she likes 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 supportive 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 support 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 Shadowfax’s Day Services, please contact us.
