Life Skills Small Group Program

Assisting adults in understanding valuable skills for functional life including money handling, budgeting and saving.

The benefits of this group include making new connections with other clients, possibly forming new friendships, and using learned social skills with the support of the Allied Health Assistant.

The group’s overall benefit is that it provides lessons in money planning and usage to encourage sensible spending and saving to prevent stressors in the future as well as increase independence and help these clients reach goals.  

The small group will be provided by Eden AHA and go over 6 weeks in one-hour sessions. The sessions will include 3 clients of the same abilities. Information will be presented in PowerPoint, worksheets, and videos. The ideas will be put into practice in scenario-based activities. The sessions will always begin with icebreakers/conversation starters to provide the extra benefit of social interactions.
