facilities & programs : developmental training
After evaluating each person’s physical, mental and emotional status, as well as their personal needs and desires, we establish an appropriate plan for their development.
Our training center is designed to help residents overcome obstacles that may otherwise interfere with skills development. Here we help people reach their maximum potential in physical, emotional, and social abilities. The Developmental Training Center is often the starting point where individuals establish the prerequisites needed before advancing to other programs.
Many of our residents enjoy the fulfillment that comes with a job. Residents may choose light assembly work, ceramics, food service, or janitorial. Cooking classes teach basic food preparation, sanitation and safety — great for residents who are able to prepare some of their own meals. All vocational programs are fully supervised by qualified staff.
We offer a number of programs that focus on physical and occupational therapy, sensory stimulation, self-care, and communication. Our Medically Involved Program is for those who have special medical conditions. Our Sensory/Motor program promotes active engagement in the environment and helps individuals transition to perform work activities when possible. And, our Functional/Motor Program provides habilitation training for those who need to improve their motor skills.
Judah Senior Center
Our Senior residents often have additional challenges resulting from age related medical conditions and reduced physical endurance. Participants can choose from a variety of activities, including music therapy, pet therapy, arts and crafts, and even shopping excursions and volunteer service. Our Community Program allows seniors to make day trips into the community and focus on social, leisure, domestic and money management skills. Our Raboteau Program is for the “medically fragile” individual. It is conducted in a home-like setting with a fully equipped physical therapy room. Alternative and Transitional Senior Programs help those who require special sensory stimulation, behavior modification, or assistance with basic needs in a slower paced and more relaxed training regimen.
