Our day program is offered from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm, Monday-Friday, and lays the groundwork to prepare our friends with developmental disabilities for life in the community. Our friends participate in classes they wish to take and choose their own goals in the classroom.
The Chanan Foundation’s Day Center training program serves anyone with a developmental disability over 18, regardless of severity or ability. Each person has an Individualized Service Plan to meet their independent needs.
Our activities include community outings, academics, motor skills, self-help skills, and a time to relax by watching movies or listening to music.
The Chanan Foundation’s group homes are licensed for four residents as private rooms. In our homes, highly trained professional staff help with activities of daily living (ADLs) depending on the level of need. Our staff also teaches residents meal preparation, laundry, housekeeping, money management, and personal shopping. Activities that the residents participate in include: Special Olympics, Bocce, Bowling, boat trips, museum visits, picnics, dining out, Etc… Chanan Homes are licensed by The GA Department of Community Health and inspected monthly by the state’s Support Coordination agencies and weekly and monthly internal inspections.
The Chanan Foundation offers services for those individuals that would like, or need more independent services. These services are designed during an ISP (Individual Service Plan) to meet the individual’s independent needs. These services can include a wide variety of of community-based activities, with one on one staffing. These services allow our friends with disabilities more access to participate in the activities of their choice, in their own community with the ability to live a more productive, independent life.
The Chanan Foundation provides a wide range of services for our friends with developmental disabilities. Our customized services allow us to assist those desiring to live independently or continue to live with their parents or guardian. Services in these settings include but are not limited to assisting in housing selection, setting up the home (decorating, furniture placement, etc.), teaching organizational skills, time management, money management, meal planning, cooking, cleaning, and assistance with grocery and personal shopping. The Chanan Foundation also helps with all self-care tasks related to hygiene, grooming, medical care, and taking medications. We also coordinate all in-home support services with other providers, helping our friends with developmental disabilities build relationship skills in the community and with roommates and assisting with home safety planning and other crafts.
We believe that all people, regardless of disability, have inherent qualities which can benefit society. We also feel they will attain whatever goals they pursue when allowed self-expression. Chanan Foundation currently serves our friends with disabilities 24 hours a day, seven days a week, depending upon the level of the client’s need. Every day we have clients spending time in the community at various locations as part of our community inclusion program. All services focus on helping our friends acquire, maintain, and enhance the skills needed to live the most full and independent lifestyle possible. Community involvement for our friends with developmental disabilities is strongly promoted and encouraged.
