We understand that you might feel the need to belong to a community and feel connected to people of your age. It is important for all social beings to interact within the community to improve their mental health and have an optimistic approach towards life. At OSAN Ability, we have a vision of forming different communities within our group of clients with a range of community & social participation programs focused on empowering disabled persons. It can be incredibly hard and demotivating but these social activities can be beneficial and fulfilling.
First, our experienced support coordinators will get to know the person (participant) entirely and then identify various skills and areas of interest to offer the most holistic, outcome-focused community support. We are committed to providing the most personalised supports that can deliver the best results and meet the changing needs of our clients.
- Understanding our participants – As every individual has different needs, interests and hobbies. We offer the most holistic, outcome-focused community support.
- Deciding on activities – We proceed to talk about the activities that could be performed and within the means of the participant. This could involve activities that could boost creativity, intelligence, physical activities or technology.
- Increasing your scope of activity – We are always encouraging you to try new things and experiences which might include arts & craft, technology or fitness activities
- Individual – You can choose to learn skills individually or join a group.
- Make friends – Make friends everyday with us. meeting new people at different social events will help you form connections. You would meet people with different walks of life with the same interests as you.
