​Respite Services​

My Choice Programs offers a person support that focuses on socialization and recreational activities that are based on personal interest. This includes training on how to use public transportation, understanding street directions, and finding information using social media and the internet. More specifically, we:

  • Provide verbal instruction, cues, and modeling/demonstration of appropriate social skills necessary for successful community integration and satisfactory interactions with family, friends, and others encountered in the community.  

  • Train individuals to safely and effectively utilize various means of public transportation, while familiarizing individuals with the orientations of their neighborhoods and general locales.  

  • Provide safety training pertaining to all aspects of community access, including use of sidewalks, street crossing, carrying/utilizing mobile phones and up to date ID and emergency medical info, etc.

  • Encourage individuals to utilize local media and the Internet as vehicles of information for accessing community recreational, cultural, and social opportunities.  

  • Proactively connect individuals with various educational and training resources in the community, including fostering enrollment in courses at various local educational/cultural institutions.  

  • Reduce social isolation by encouraging independent utilization of community and senior centers, and maintaining meaningful personal, peer group, and family relationships apart from paid staff involvement.

  • Provide respite services and recreational opportunities on a one to one and small group basis, transporting and supervising individuals as they participate in a variety of community activities based upon their unique interests, capabilities, and preferences.
