Cota’s Acquired Brain Injury Adult Day Service (ABI ADS) Program located at the Providence Healthcare site, offers a supportive and creative group environment for adults living with Acquired Brain Injury. Clients select from a menu of unique daily program offerings that take place over a successive four-month terms. The program offerings encourage clients to engage in meaningful activities, explore strengths, and develop new/diverse skills.
Previously, ABI ADS offered a hot lunch to program participants on Wednesdays, while coffee and snacks were made available on other days of the week. During focus groups conducted in 2016, our clients had expressed an interest in having access to a free hot lunch program, every day of the week.
As a result the ABI ADS team – Kristen, Indramattie (Pam), Jennie, and Robert – created plans to begin offing a five-day light meal program. Volunteers have been recruited to provide assistance with food preparation.
The program was implemented and began in January 2018. Pam and Kristen (full-time program staff) coordinate weekly food orders and pick-up dates and meals are prepared fresh onsite by a group of dedicated volunteers. Further, the menu on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday features four light options that are rotated weekly, and clients enrolled in the Wednesday drop-in program still receive a hot hearty meal.
Jennie (Manager, Community Health) reports that the program budget is modest but the team is proud that they are able to make this happen and very thankful for the additional support of the volunteers.
