Group Day Services
Eggleston Group Day Service is designed to offer individuals meaningful and functional year round/daily supports based on improving quality of life and enhancing independence for individuals with disabilities. Eggleston promotes individuals’ integration within their communities and engagement with other community members; offering more freedom and options to develop natural support systems and relationships. All activities provided focus on growth in independence and self-actualization. Services provided include skill building and supports for the acquisition, retention, or improvement of self-help, socialization, community integration, employability and adaptive skills. Group day services provide opportunities for peer interactions, community integration, enhancement of social networks and assurance of an individual’s health and safety. Skill Building is a focus of this service unless the individual has a documented degenerative condition, in which case day services may focus on maintaining skill and functioning and preventing or slowing regression rather than acquiring new skills or improving existing skills. Group day services delivered in a group setting of no more than 1:7 staff to individual ratio.
