Wonderful Programs for the DisabledAn average day in our facility consists of socialization with peers, staff, and volunteers. Our participants also have the opportunity to receive prescribed occupational therapy.
There are many activity options for disabled adults at New Gateways. We offer pet therapy , music therapy with FAR, and physical fitness outings to OCHN and Inclusively Fit. Participants may also enjoy health and beauty services—we provide manicures, hair washing, haircuts (with permission from client or guardian), pedicures, and fashion fun. We also provide fun activities such as group games, movie showings, computer games, arts and crafts, and party planning. Daily community outings are held as well, including trips to shopping malls and local parks, fishing, casinos, art projects, visiting other programs to see old friends, shopping for micro business supplies, bowling, picnics, museums, sporting events, attending seminars where we sell our crafts, and many more community events. We celebrate all holidays! We have a great diversity committee consisting of clients and staff that see to it that our rooms and halls are decorated for ALL holidays.
All clients are encouraged to make independent and healthy choices throughout the day. Everyone is given a multitude of places to go in the community, accompanied by staff and volunteers. Parents, family members, volunteers, friends, and case managers are encouraged to join in on our daily activities. New Gateways is very fortunate and proud to have a supportive parent group. We welcome input from Parents’ Council as well as group home staff and others associated with our clients.
