Transitioning to Adult Services


Over the past six months we have welcomed two individuals to Adult Services from our Children’s Services Program. Both women have adjusted well to the new programming. I sat down with the two of them asking about the new changes around them. They commented on enjoying their day programs and “getting out into the community often”.  They also spoke of how they feel more empowered to make decisions on activities; “I can visit my friends next door everyday”.  Both women are planning their first quarterly dinner to attend out in the community. 

Four times a year individuals choose a restaurant for dining out in the community. Both women are enjoying their time in adult services and speak often of the wonderful memories they have made over their years here at Latham.
