The Adult Wellness Program is open Monday-Friday, 9:30 am -2:30 pm and serves adults that are 60 years or better and individuals that are 18-59 and have a disability. The program offers three distinct services including congregate meals, transportation and adult development. The congregate meal program consists of breakfast, lunch and a snack provided to our clients on a daily basis. The program contracts out to a transportation company to provide transportation for our clients to and from their homes to the agency. The adult development activities are based on the Hettler Wellness Model that is comprised of programming including the categories of physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual and occupational wellness.
In the last program year, The Adult Wellness Program served 59 clients and transported 28 clients to and from their homes as well as on field trips which totaled 1,202 trips. The program served 3,547 meals including breakfast, lunch and snack.
Shirley Dixson has been attending the program for 5 years. When Ms. Dixson first enrolled she was totally dependent on staff because she was visually impaired. We linked Ms. Dixson to the Cleveland Sight Center and other community services. Ms. Dixson is now walking to and from the bus by herself with the use of a walking stick.
Harold Brannon has been a participant of the Adult Wellness program for 3 years. Mr. Brannon has led our men’s club meeting for the past six months. Mr. Brannon has started a billiards club amongst the men and they compete with each other at a high level.
A Letter To Our Program
Why The Art Program Is Important
Dear University Settlement,
The art program is important to us seniors at University Settlement because it helps us to relax and keeps our minds’ active. It is also very therapeutic and helps us to be creative.
If we didn’t have our art program it would be very boring. Not only do we work with different colors. When we are creating designs for paintings to be hung in the center. We also work with flowers and other types of material.
In conclusion we enjoy the art program here at the Settlement very much.
