Day Program Services for Adults
Lakemary operates day services in both Johnson & Miami counties in Kansas, all of which provide a full continuum of supports and programs for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities.
Many of the adults served by us have community employment as a goal. For some, basic skill development is key. For others, pursuing meaningful leisure activities is most important. It is Lakemary’s goal, through our Day Services Department, to make every pursuit achievable for those we have the pleasure to serve.
Typically, about half of the adults who receive day supports from Lakemary work in community jobs. Their success is supported by Lakemary staff’s skilled assistance in the development and maintenance of these jobs.
Community Employment can be an individual working at their own job in the community or an individual working on one of Lakemary’s various work teams where a Job Coach remains on-site for the duration of the shift. Community employers have come to recognize the quality of employees they can hire through Lakemary and appreciate the support our staff provides as needed.
Through subcontracts with local companies, individuals have the opportunity to do paid work either in our service centers or in groups that go to the business’ work site.
Our adults can work at their own pace and for the period of time that is comfortable for them, while allowing time and opportunity to pursue other important activities.
Lifestyles & Valued Activities
For some of our folks, employment is not a current goal. Lakemary supports this choice by providing alternative programs in which individuals can enjoy meaningful leisure activities, both in the community and in a comfortable, homelike day program environment.
Our adult community loves to give back and positively contribute to society. Volunteering is a favorite activity among our individuals.
Our adults have volunteered at places like Mission Southside, Harvesters, Meals on Wheels, ASPCA, Prairie Paws, nursing homes, and participated in special activities like aluminum can recycling.
Day Services is just part of our larger Adult Services Department that includes the following opportunities:
- Adult Residential Services
- Recreational Services
- Careers & More
- Adult Health Services
