The Recreation Program provides a social atmosphere for integration into community life. It also provides exposure to a range of opportunities that may become lifelong habits, promoting physical and psychological health, and enhancing community participation.
How does it work?
Participants must be independent or provide their own personal supports, since these are NON-STAFFED activities. Loveland can provide Companion and/or Personal Supports to individuals ONLY IF there is a service authorization from a Waiver Support Coordinator or a contract for private pay individuals.
Activities take place both at Loveland’s Lamoureux Clubhouse or out in the community. In some instances, Loveland will provide transportation to/from the activity. Residents of the Nancy Detert Residences at Loveland Village and their personal supports are given priority seating. If additional seating is available, non-residents and their personal supports may join as well.
NOTE: since these are NON-STAFFED activities, if an individual has dietary restrictions or is taking medications that prohibit consumption of certain foods or drinks (including alcohol), it is the responsibility of the individual or their guardian to provide the supports needed. Many off campus activities are significantly large community events. Individuals can get separated from their group/friends, and if they are not able to be left alone in the community, these individuals MUST HAVE their supports with them.
How to participate?
The Activities Calendar identifies events happening in the community or on site. There are sign-up sheets for transportation; however, there will also be community activities or events on the calendar that are not arranged trips, but are on the calendar so that individuals are informed about the happenings in their community. Anyone interested in these activities or events would need to schedule their own transportation, and, if needed, bring their own personal supports. Again, Loveland can be contracted to provide Companion and Personal Supports services for these or other activities.
Why choose Loveland’s recreation?
Community is essential – not only a community of peers, but also inclusion in the community itself. Loveland’s Recreation Program provides a sense of belonging and opportunity for people to discover and experience new things. Public activities help people feel more welcome in the communities where they live, work or play. Recreation also provides opportunities for self-expression and self-development by fostering a sense of freedom and independence.
