Did you know over 100 adults chose Springbrook’s Capstone Day Habilitation Program? Capstone Day Habilitation provides opportunities for meaningful new experiences, learning through practice and engagement in the community, fun activities like arts and crafts, volunteering, and an individualized approach to exploring interests and meeting goals.
During the pandemic, Day Habilitation staffing and programming were reorganized to provide these experiences within Springbrook’s Home Unit structure, eliminating unnecessary in-person interactions. Many opportunities were brought into each residence through technology. Smart-TVs with webcams allowed people at various locations to virtually meet at the Capstone site for their usual activities like yoga, current events discussions, arts & crafts, and social visits with friends. Though Springbrook has returned to many in-person programs, this technology is still available today, providing even more options for the people who chose Springbrook for their day programming.
The dedication, creativity, and collaboration of Springbrook’s staff were vital to the success of this programmatic shift. Similarly, we owe thanks to a very generous (and anonymous) local foundation that funded the purchase of the technology needed to make virtual programming a possibility.
