Adult Community Inclusion
For individuals who are not interested in employment, but would like to engage in community based activities, Adult Community Inclusion provides an alternative to employment training. Adult Community Inclusion Services center around activities such as social skills development, leisure activities, training in daily living skills, improvement of health status, and especially, utilization of community resources.
Examples of Community Inclusion activities:
- Taking a picnic lunch and eating at local parks such as; Stewart Parkway or Havens Gardens
- Exercise at local fitness centers
- Touring museums, historic sites, and various leisure/recreational settings
- Day trips to various locations (example: NC State Fair)
- Going out to eat
- Participating in classes on diet, nutrition, and healthy living
- Participating in craft classes
Exploring available community resources (examples: County DSS; Health Department; Social Security; local library)
This is not an exclusive list. Activities are centered around each individual’s health needs, as well as which leisure and recreational activities they want to pursue. Again, the primary focus, of this service is getting out in the community, learning and experiencing community resources, learning about and participating in recreational and leisure activities, in an integrated community setting.
