PALS Inc runs a large number of activities, both group and individual, tailored by the clients direction and needs in participating in their local community. Individualised day services aim to provide high-quality outcome based support and activities, either group or personalised that meet individual needs and enhance independence, abilities, community participation and quality of life.
Our services look different for each and every client as services are developed on an individual level to suit the needs and desires of the client.
‘To live a long healthy, happy and active life.’
Encapsulating a healthy lifestyle is very important and the components that make up a healthy lifestyle differ for each individual.
At PALS Inc we endeavour to deliver an individual and unique approach to each and every client and are able to offer activities such as bike riding, gym, foot spa, make up, massage, golf or zumba just to name a few.
‘As a hobby – As a vocation – As a professional’
Horticulture uses knowledge, skills and technologies to grow plants for human food and non-human food uses.
If you have a keen interest in this area or wish to grow your skills in a certain area of horticulture we are able to design a service to suit your specific interests and needs.
‘To build your skills – To be safe in your community’
Life skills are behaviours that allow us to appropriately manage our personal affairs.
We are able to help clients develop any life skills they wish to build on, these skills can range from budgeting to bike repairs to meal preparation.
Recreational activities facilitate the refreshment of one’s mind, they can be communal or solitary, active or passive and indoors or outdoors. Recreation is important in everyday lives as it helps to rejuvenate and stimulate the body and mind and also provide a refreshing break from normal everyday activities.
The enjoyment of recreational activities depends solely on the individual and their personal tastes, due to this we are able to cater for a wide range of recreational activities as we understand that not one thing appeals to everyone.
‘Explore your creative side – Learn new skills and techniques’
Art is a soothing activity that can allow us to express emotions in ways we may not otherwise be able to do.
The art stream can cover a wide range of activities such as dance, music, card making or drama.
‘Gain skills, active learning opportunities and work experience’
We are able to work with clients who wish to enter the workforce, either to work within our current business enterprises or to assist them in skill development to enter the external workforce.
We have a range of business enterprises within PALS Inc where clients are able to seek employment. These skills can be used long term for clients or can serve as a training base to get clients ready to seek further employment outside of PALS Inc.
‘Navigate your community – be an active participant’
Engagement and citizenship are very important to include in our lives to achieve a positive balance.
We can help clients in accessing clubs and sporting groups, entertainment, information, public transport or any community services they wish to participate in. As well as this we can help to build on social skills to ensure that participation is a positive experience for everyone.
‘A structured program to increase your leaning and understanding’
Education is an ongoing part of everyone’s lives, although we leave an educational setting such as ‘school’ we never truly stop learning. At PALS Inc we encourage our clients to continue learning and we are able to assist them in achieving their educational goals.
This may include education in, numeracy and literacy, woodwork, retail and warehousing, editorial skills or gaining a TAFE certificate.
