The majority of the residents living in these houses attend programmes in our day service during the day. Others are in educational classes or employment and return to their houses in the afternoon. The residents are encouraged to take responsibility for their home by taking part in household chores that help maintain their home. These include domestic activities such as room cleaning, laundry, table setting/clearing and food preparation. They are also encouraged to be involved in personal self-care programmes. Expectations of involvement in tasks are based on the level of the person’s ability.
