The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services instructs states to consider whether service provision results in people having limited opportunities for interaction with members of the broader community. “Limited opportunities” can mean opportunities that are few in number, but can also refer to the limited nature of opportunities, even if they are plentiful in number.
Providing meaningful day services isn’t just about getting people out of the building—it’s about actively supporting people to explore, connect and contribute to their communities. When done well, meaningful day services create pathways to employment, greater independence, belonging and lasting relationships.
Given this context, this webinar starts with the assumption that people of all abilities benefit from active support that enables people to be connected with their communities. During this 90-minute session, speakers will share:
An overview of what we mean by meaningful day services and why they are important.
Tools and strategies used by providers in the delivery of meaningful day services.
Stories and examples from meaningful day services and the people and organizations involved.
A recording will be made available for registrants.
