Community Experience South Meriden
Community Experience South Meriden is a full service program that offers opportunities for individuals with multiple disabilities to participate in personal choices within their environment and in their local community.
The program is located in South Meriden close to shops, parks and friendly neighbors. The individuals can enjoy the private yard, community events and various volunteer opportunities.
At the site, individuals can choose to relax in our sensory room with a fiber optic waterfall over a relaxing waterbed or interact with the bubble column which displays color and motion changes. One may decide to wrap up in fiber optic lights or enjoy the scenic motion displays of undersea life around the waterbed. For those who love music or movies in the main area, they may enjoy the large Smart TV with surround sound which is also perfect for interactive games or lay on the large human drum and create music as the vibrations float through their body.
Activities in the area are based on personal choice and individuals can be seen participating in arts & crafts, games, sing-a-longs, music therapy, movies, exercise, sensory stimulation or other events of their choice. The individuals also enjoy planting flowers each year around the outside area.
During the day, individuals choose to participate in community activities that have included visits to the parks, planetarium, bowling, miniature golf, fishing, shopping, local restaurants and coffee shops.
Highly trained staff provide assistance with personal needs, adult daily living skills, medical needs including medication administration, volunteer opportunities, future dream building and person centered planning, personal relationship building, self-advocacy, advocacy and behavioral management.
