ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING
Residents are responsible to do their share of work around the house to ensure meals are prepared, common rooms are clean, groceries are purchased and stored away along with many other household duties. Residents do their own laundry, manage thier rooms and help choose meals for the weekly menu.
Residents are very involved in their community. Most have jobs in the Windsor area. Many also attend the Hants Learning Network to improve their literacy skills. Residents also volunteer their time to give back to their community. They are strong supporters of Christmas Angels and the Terry Fox Run.
Group living is always a challenge so relationships are constantly being supported and developed. Residents enjoy being able to keep very strong close knit ties with their family and friends no matter where they live. We celebrate many birthdays and special events almost always with cake!
The safety of everyone living and working at King's Meadow is always a priority. Staff support the development of safety skills so that all residents reach a level of independence in their life that brings with it dignity and self-actualization.
Having fun in life is a program priority. Residents have a variety of interests so there is a lot going on in the house at one time. Gardening, bowling, TaiChi, crafts, billiards, cooking, video games, walking and shopping are only a few of the activities that go on in a regular week.
We promote Helathy Living at King's Meadow! We try to always have healthy meals based on the Canada Food Guide but we have been known to cheat on occasion. Besides good nutrition we also recognize the importance of exercise, sleep, socialization, mental stimulation and spirituality.
