A Day at AIM
Everyday at Adults in Motion is filled with new experiences and opportunities. Our flexible routine includes a variety of creative programming and community adventures.
Arrival begins no earlier than 8am with the majority of participants arriving by 9am. During this time we encourage personal interest activities, socializing with others or relaxing with a warm beverage.
We gather as a group to check-in with each other, connect, discuss current events, weather reports, special announcements and review the day’s upcoming events. This is an important start to our day.
Community/In House Program
We often venture into the community to enjoy one of many activites, such as visiting a farm 0r a special event or engages in a community focused activity like volunteering at a soup kitchen or visiting a community garden.
Another group remains at the program for popular in-house programming such as baking, music or many other favorite activities like woodworking.
Or A Community Visitor
Somedays we enjoy a visit from a community visitor at the program! Professionals, musicians, yoga instructors, or canine visitors are all examples of our many connections that enhance our in-house programming.
We encourage participants to work on independent goals, personal interests or socializing with friends and staff during our transition times between activities.
Together we practice life skills in the kitchen, conversation skills around the table and build friendships during lunch. On free lunch days help plan, shop and prepare meals for friends.
Community/In House Program
We typically connect again in the community in the afternoon where participants who stayed in-house in the morning now head out for a variety of community task such as shopping or a special placement like the YMCA, just to name a few.
The other group remains at the program for many more popular in-house programming such as arts and crafts, karaoke or a specialized workshop.
Or A Special Event!
We build skills, teamwork and have fun while hosting special events like fundraisers, community events and even lunches with politicians or the Chief of Police. We can also use this time to plan and prepare OR celebrate a special event or theme day.
Participants also enjoy the sensory room, making a snack, reading with friends or playing games and music during our transition times between activities.
Busy days need time to wrap up and wind down. This can include chore time, finishing projects and ending our day with a group chat about our day, new activity ideas and feedback.
All participants exit the program by 4:00pm. The most common mode of transportation is mobility transit and parent pick-ups. We can also help families coordinate car pooling and connecting with transportation supports. *Some locations have extended hours to 4:30.
First responders are some of our favorite people! We take pride in our friendships with police and firefighters in our communities. We visit their stations and they visit us for grilled cheese lunches and dance parties!
