Palm Beach Habilitation Center’s Adult Day Training programs stress training in the activities of daily living, self-advocacy, and social skills that maintain and increase the level of independence for individuals with significant disabilities and older adults who cannot participate in a work setting.
Each person who participates in Day Services is assigned a Program Manager who works with the individual to determine their specific program goals. Using a person-centered approach, the Program Manager provides directions and suggestions about learning the skills needed to maintain and increase their level of independence. The Program Manager is responsible for assuring the overall safety and health of the individual which requires coordination of services with family members, health care providers, specialists, and support coordinators. The Program Manager also works to develop, implement, and monitor each person’s individualized plan and goals.
