Accessing the Community
The goal of Arc of Bristol County’s Day Habilitation programs is to support people with developmental disabilities to learn new skills in a community based setting. The Arc is committed to providing a range of opportunities to meet this goal through an ongoing effort to both establish partnerships with community members and preserve and expand upon the preexisting relationships of the individuals supported.
Keeping people active and healthy is another goal of The Arc’s Day Habilitation program. People with disabilities that take part in the program will stay active through swimming, sports and recreation at local parks, the YMCA and other venues. The program plans to utilize other methods like Yoga, Pilates, dance and strength training as well as technology like the Wii to enhance health and well being. The program also provides access to an accessible kitchen where people can learn about nutrition and how to cook healthy meals.
The Arc aims to provide supports and services in a way that is fun and interesting, where people can explore new ideas and discover hidden talents while developing skills. People supported in the Day Habilitation program are given exposure to the arts and chances to be creative through music lessons, art and sketch classes, sewing, and photography.
