Easterseals Southern California (ESSC) has launched a public awareness campaign, “We are the 25%”. It highlights that 1 in 4 Americans identifies has having a disability, and that the disability vote represents some 61 million voices strong.
This year's National Adult Day Services Week September 20-26, brings with it a renewed appreciation for how the service provides older adults, adults living with dementia, or adults living with disabilities with individualized therapeutic, social, and health services for some part of the day.
Amber Carey-Navarrete has developed Person-Centered Culture and Practices (PCCP)©, a turnkey training and implementation guide for adult day services to succeed in their person-centered culture change journey. Person-centered culture champions personal preferences, interests and needs. Targeting services that support adults with disabilities, PCCP is based on the philosophy that people know themselves best. People know what is essential and meaningful in their own lives and services are meant to support them in pursuing their dreams.
