Accessing the Community
Program that provides home and community-based services to children and adults with disabilities who require the level of care provided in a nursing facility. These services are an alternative to institutionalization. They help a person live as independently as possible in community settings and promote optimal health, independence, safety and community integration.
Many individuals with a physical or cognitive limitation are aware that getting out and about in the community presents significant challenges.
Recreation and leisure activities are a critical dimension of the quality of life for all people, including those with disabilities. Community access is an important part of the life of a person with a disability, as it provides access to recreation tasks, social opportunities and enables an individual to develop skills and competencies.
