Since its inception, the program has served thousands of adults and their families in Monroe County.
Activities are designed to meet the needs of both the participants and their families. To enable family members to spend quality time in other activities, the Community Recreation Program is designed to give families a break from their care-giving responsibilities.
Whether taking part in a basketball game, a cooking club, or an ice cream social, individuals with developmental disabilities and their families have access to a wide choice of unique programs and recreational activities through Lifetime Assistance.
Each month, our newsletter alerts members to the variety of activities available including events such as attending a show or play, a baseball game, bowling, basketball, swimming, crafts, dances, movies, picnics and bingo. Recreation participants also enjoy attending local sporting events, concerts and day trips to amusement parks.
Lifetime Assistance also provides vacation planning so that individuals with developmental disabilities can experience all that life has to offer! Our unique Lifestyles program offers a more individualized, one-to-one approach to recreation, allowing people to pursue their favorite interests and hobbies. Recreation and Leisure Time Coaches work with teach person to help identify and pursue the leisure activities of their choice.
