CLO's Day Services
Many of the individuals CLO serves have significant health needs. CLO meets these needs through our Wellness Clinics, located at CLO’s sites in Johnson and Douglas Counties in Kansas. The goal of these clinics is to provide preventative health care and wellness assessments for those served, catching concerns early and monitoring health needs frequently. The Wellness Clinic provides examination rooms and space for CLO’s nursing staff who work in partnership with visiting primary care physicians and nurse practitioners, as well as other specialists and therapists, so they can meet the health needs of individuals served in the comfort and security of a familiar setting. And since the Wellness Clinics are located near CLO’s day and recreational services space, the individuals we serve have an opportunity to participate in interesting activities while waiting.
CLO’s day services program focuses on teaching adults with disabilities ways to fully live, work and participate in their community.
Recreational opportunities are important as this provides the individuals we serve an opportunity to express themselves through hobbies, sports, and other interests. With support from their teachers, they visit stores, volunteer, and attend local parades, festivities, and events. All of these activities have one common purpose, to teach individuals with disabilities ways to appropriately socialize and expand their network of friends and acquaintances in the community.
Employment is another key aspect of the day services program. For most people, quality of life is defined by their job. Similarly, adults with disabilities find pride and self-worth in earning a paycheck. This is why CLO is always searching for supported employment opportunities, to find new and creative ways to make the dream of being employed a reality! Along with partnerships with local businesses that employ some individuals, CLO also manages recycling sites, curbside recycling and paper shredding to provide meaningful employment opportunities. It is amazing to see an individual grow in their self-esteem and everyday skills just by going to work!
