Day program fosters greater independence

Posted: Updated:

WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) -- The Victory Heights Center for Achievement has added a day program to help adults with disabilities become more independent.

The day program extends from STRIDE, Supporting Therapeutic Recreation for Individuals with Disabilities.

It was created in 2000 with the aim of allowing people to reconnect with their community and engage in recreational activities with peers.

From swim meets to bowling to trips to Keeneland, Clark County Association for Handicapped Citizens Director Darren Diguette said the schedule is now more regular for participants.

Activities are scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and designed to help individuals achieve their dreams of independence.

Diguette said participants work on money math, handwriting and nutrition, as well as everyday life skills, such as cooking, cleaning and laundry.
