|Description (Service)||Children and adults with a developmental disability are supported in caring environments promoting well-being of mind, body and spirit; people have the opportunity to develop individual interests and skills and participate as an active member of a household. Individualized support focuses on self-determination, personal choice, responsibility, contentment, inclusion and community participation.
The Supported Independent Living Program is an option where people live independently either on their own or in shared accommodations. Assistance is offered to enhance the independent living abilities of the people receiving support. Help is typically requested in the areas of banking, budgeting, grocery shopping and cooking however; support varies and is provided in any aspect of daily living.
KW Habilitation offers short breaks for children and adults at residential homes. In addition, two weekends a month, a program emphasizing participation in leisure activities and community events is offered for children aged 6-17 years.
