Life Options Program

The LIFE OPTIONS PROGRAM is designed by participants and staff. Its goal is to enhance learning experiences and expand horizons. This is continuing to occur, although not through the Learning Modules and Community Inclusion activities as it was before life changed with the coming of Covid-19. The interactive learning process is still occurring, however, virtually through Zoom. 

Many exciting, interesting activities are occurring in LO. They range from guest speakers discussing their experiences as actors in Broadway shows to sports greats talking with our individuals about their experiences as players and answering their questions, to conversing about current events, and debating public policy. Individuals in LO are expanding their horizons daily.

Community-Based Day Habilitation

The COMMUNITY-BASED DAY HABILITATION PROGRAM, while also enjoying virtual programming on Zoom, continue to perform their volunteer work in the community.

They work with Book Fairies, where they deliver books around Nassau County,  ACLD’s Rewearables program where they pick up and deliver used clothing to their sites and of course the always faithful Recyclable program which, while not only helping our environment, is also an opportunity to raise funds for special events they enjoy.

Site-Based Day Habilitation

Individuals in our SITE-BASED DAY HABILITATION PROGRAM, in addition to working on increasing their independence in ADL skills and participating in special events and holiday celebrations, are enjoying special activities such as Music therapy classes, Art classes where beautiful projects are being created, and drumming classes with Sidiki who is an African drummer who gets our individuals drumming and singing their hearts out all on Zoom!

Oceanside Day Habilitation Hub Site

Our OCEANSIDE DAY HABILITATION HUB SITE is a program located in the community of Oceanside.

Adults who participate in the program at the Oceanside Hub site enjoy friendships and camaraderie as they work together with Hub staff to learn and progress. Although currently unable to interact with the community by frequenting stores and restaurants as they did before, they are able to continue to be a part of the community by taking walks and exchanging pleasantries with neighbors, etc. while also working on improving their independence in ADL skills, enjoying hands on activities and virtual programming on Zoom.

However you choose to receive your Adult Day Service Program, telehealth services are in place to meet your therapeutic and medical needs.
