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.
If you missed our 2015 Annual Meeting here are a couple of videos from the event. The first is a brief summary of our organization’s mission statement from CEO Paul Boynton and Board Chairman Mike Reed.
The 2nd video is a truly insightful interview Paul Boynton conducted with our guest speaker and performer, Matt Savage, who overcame issues associated with Pervasive Development Disorder, a high-functioning type of autism, to become a renowned performer.
