Voices for Independence is a Living Well with a Disability location. We believe that every person has the right to live well, not in mediocrity. Everyone defines "living well" differently, and this program is designed to enhance the quality of life for all those we serve. This initiative takes the independent living philosophy to the next level. Truly living a fulfilling life is more than just living independently in one's own apartment. It means living a healthy lifestyle, getting out and doing more and taking advantage of all that life in this community has to offer. As part of the initiative, Voices has opened a fitness center inside our facility. We also now offer coordinated activities (check out our EVENTS section) designed to create more fun and excitement for those who want to participate.
Sometimes what prevents us as people from achieving success is not the lack of desire to do so, but the inability to create the plan to get there. The Living Well assessment is that plan. It all starts with a phone call to 1-877-865-4893 or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. So far, VFI has put together fishing trips, shopping trips, gardening opportunities, movie day, craft classes, cooking classes, as well as opened an accessible fitness center with equipment that is available to everyone. We even have an accessible scale so that you can be weighed in your chair. It is our goal to continue these activities and design more programs that benefit people with disabilities, and your input matters! Please tell us how we can continue to provide services and activities that empower you to Live Well with a Disability!
What does Living Well With A Disability mean to YOU?
Perhaps it's being able to cook a big meal for your family, play baseball with your kids, obtain employment, or drive your first accessible van. Or maybe you dream of playing competitive sports, flying a plane or climbing a mountain. Regardless of your goals, Living Well With A Disability was developed to open the doors to new opportunities and resources that you may not have envisioned. It has been established by people with disabilities for people with disabilities to achieve goals, meet challenges, fulfill dreams, and ultimately live well.
Living Well With A Disability is a valuable resource for anyone with any type of disability - and it's free! The program connects you with a qualified Living Well specialist who will work with you to identify your needs and goals, and develop a plan for meeting them. To begin, call the Living Well hotline ( 1-877-865-4893 ) or email ( email@example.com ). A specialist will meet with you to conduct a survey that focuses on all aspects of your life. We will aid in finding the right services, programs or support you need to achieve your goals - many of which you may not have known existed!
