Community Habilitation at CP Nassau – Making Progress in the Pandemic
Com Hab staff continue to face challenges finding activities suitable to meet the needs of the individuals in the program. Staff and the individuals have to be more creative to find activities that are socially distanced in the communities and are slowing increasing the vast amount of activities that they can participate in.
You may encounter a Com Hab staff in the community at a local park, in the bowling alley, shopping in the malls, grocery shopping for baked goods to show off their baking skills, at the local socially- distanced movie theatres, grabbing a bite to eat at restaurants and much more. The staff are doing a tremendous job with trying to normalize the lives of the individuals and their families
Families often express their love and adoration for their Com Hab staff and are grateful that their loved ones are able to be continued active members of their communities.
In light of the year 2020 and all we have endured through a global Pandemic, and now in 2021 feeling optimistic about improving conditions, the new tagline, “Moving Forward Together” has taken on even more significance and meaning.
March 9-12 was at CP Nassau! 157 vaccines were administered to people with disabilities affiliated with our programs, some direct support professionals participated too!
