All individuals housed by Thresholds Homes and Supports receive a range of ongoing support services that respond to their individual needs.
Community support coordinators, practical support workers, and nurses, in partnership with our consumers, work on identified goals. The focus is on strengths and includes goals such as improving financial planning and physical health, as well as expanding social networks and participating in community activities.
An indication of health and well-being for individuals is a reduction in hospitalizations. Over the past 10 years, there has been a decline in the number of our consumers requiring hospitalization. Although many factors in an individual’s life may contribute to this decline over time, individuals in housing support experience a significant decrease in hospitalizations.
Wellness activities is a lifestyle intervention program providing nursing supports and recreation/leisure activities to consumers receiving our housing support services. The goal is to increase general well-being by helping people become/stay physically active, socially engaged, and be a part of the community. Activities include: cooking, music therapy, gardening, walking and hiking groups, YMCA participation through memberships, and educational groups on topics such as smoking cessation. Consumers experience enhanced overall quality of life through increased physical health and socialization and maintenance of mental health, with a focus on recovery.
