Cornerstone Day Habilitation
With its community integration focus, Cornerstone Day Habilitation is conveniently located in downtown Beverly to allow participants handy access to a wide variety of resources, including local beaches and parks, clubs, community organizations and merchants. Cornerstone personnel support participants in developing objectives and activities based on their personal and therapeutic goals, and interests.
Meridian Day Habilitation is staffed with RNs, LPNs and specially trained medical staff to meet the needs of a medically fragile population; affording them opportunities they might otherwise not be able to fully access due to medical and physical challenges. The Program Director and the Director of DayHab Services are both licensed nurses. In addition, two program nurses meet the needs of participants who would otherwise be confined to a nursing home or other specialized facility. If a participant has a change in status, a meeting is scheduled for the interdisciplinary team to determine the best course to take to re-establish skills and make referrals, as indicated. If more supports are needed, program and division directors meet to determine if a funding source, over and above the established rate, can be accessed. We have been successful in securing a variety of additional medical supports including one-to-one staffing by medically certified professionals as needed.
The LEEDS Day Habilitation program provides a high level of staff supervision and instruction for individuals with significant cognitive, behavioral and physical needs. The program provides personal and social training to participants, with a special focus on community integration. Participants have a wide array of choices and opportunities for many new experiences. In addition supports are offered to individuals who require the therapeutic supports (Physical, Occupational, Speech Therapies or Behavior Supports) of a Day Habilitation Program, and also desire paid work options. People choosing this new program option are able to participate on a part time basis in DayHab with an option to work part-time and receive a pay check.
