Art Exploration

Vision.  Creativity.  Achievement.

 

Art exploration, activities and income for adults with disabilities.

Art communicates without words. Many adults with developmental and other disabilities are talented artists. supreme Care supports clients with disabilities, helping them unleash the artist within. Our day programs for adults with disabilities offer opportunities to engage in creating a variety of visual arts for personal enrichment or for sale. Many artists at  Supreme Care create beautiful greeting cards. Others prefer to paint on canvas or glass, explore mixed media, or work with their hands to create collages, sculpture or other three-dimensional pieces. Involvement in art improves fine motor skills, is emotionally enriching, and can be calming, which is beneficial for many clients, including those with autism.

Artistic expression is a powerful outlet for personal and social development. Supreme Care’s artists’ program encourages people with disabilities to participate in activities that develop and enhance their artistic talents. We offer programs for adults with intellectual and developmental disability (IDD), autism spectrum disorder and traumatic brain injury. Clients are supported at the level they need, including using adaptive equipment to allow full participation in mixed media arts.

Transition Services

Evaluation.  Choices.  Opportunities.

Transition services for adults with disabilities.

When an adult with disabilities moves to another city or state, or families and guardians are seeking support services for the first time, adjusting to this new reality is easier with a good plan. Supreme Care provides transition planning, work and recreational activities for adults with intellectual and developmental disability (IDD), autism spectrum disorder, and traumatic brain injury. To support a smooth transition into the wide range of adult services we offer, We work with families and guardians, care providers and community agencies to develop an individualised plan to meet that person’s needs.

Change is difficult for anyone, but can be especially challenging to someone with disabilities, so it is important to plan ahead.  Supreme Care encourages caregivers to begin discussing “What comes next?” and preparing the individual for changes to their daily routine.  Engaging Supreme Care early in the transition planning process and throughout the decision making process is important so we can::

  • Meet that individual, family/guardians and/or caregivers
  • Assist the adult’s support team with transition planning
  • Work with the family/caregivers and social services to develop a transition plan that addresses specific individual needs and goals

Our staff works collaboratively with support teams, so that from their first day with Supreme Care, new clients experience a smooth, comfortable transition.  Our staff members coordinate with families, guardians, and social service agencies to develop a transition plan tailored to each client’s specific needs. During this process, staff members spend time at the client s home or community with the referred individual to assess the services desired and what supports are needed when a person enters in our care and services. We want every transition to be a success.

Volunteering

Companionship.  Service.  Fulfillment.

Community volunteer opportunities for adults with autism and other disabilities.

For adults with autism and other developmental disabilities being involved in the community enriches the lives of those who volunteer and those helped by volunteers.  At supreme Care, we recognise how important being involved in the community plays in everyone’s life.  Giving back is a value adults with disabilities share.  Volunteering provides a sense of purpose and also offers adults with disabilities the opportunity to make new friendships.  We connects clients who have intellectual, and developmental disability (IDD), autism spectrum disorder or  traumatic brain injury to places where they can volunteer and experience the satisfaction of making our community a better place to live.

Clients at Supreme Care give back to our community through a variety of volunteer roles, such as delivering meals on wheels, helping in elementary classrooms, making blankets for an animal shelter, and other activities.  We look for opportunities that match the interests, talents and special abilities of our volunteers. Supreme Care clients volunteering in the community are supported by highly-trained staff dedicated to helping them succeed in their chosen community service activities.
