Nick Hebert is very ambitious – especially when it comes to his vending machine business. He loves talking snacks and he knows his stuff!
Nick was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome at a young age. After graduating from high school he began participating in The Moore Center’s day program, where he was given with the opportunity to stock The Moore Center’s vending machines.
A Life Skills Coach is a coach, mentor and teacher. They help individuals with intellectual disabilities, like autism & Down syndrome, develop the skills needed to integrate into the community and pursue opportunities for employment, improving their overall quality of life.
The best way to avoid the high cost of a nursing home is to avoid incidents that take your choice away. This is by far the most cost-effective approach to ensuring the best quality of life for the least possible cost.
To help you identify incidents that could take your choice away we offer a Free In-Home Risk Assessment. This assessment will help you understand the high-risk activities that your elderly loved one faces that could cause them to lose their independence and end up in a nursing home.
