Corliss Institute Group Review A Residential Program for Those who Desire Independence At a certain point in an individual39s life a person achieves a levelof competence and independence in social financial or emotional terms Most people settle down into a family life with the necessary employment connection and social network that allows for more growth in all aspects of one39s lifestyle There will always be limitations in a few or more of the roles we as individuals are expected to take on And there are those among us who may need caring attention in order for them to fully function in society Corliss group has taken great efforts in providing such services to these individuals with specialized needs Hence aside from providing training in daycenters in Warren RI it also has a Residential Program for those who wish to express their own independence Corliss provides these individuals the support they need in the matter of quotpersonal care shopping housekeeping laundry food preparation socialization and money managementquot These individuals are quotencouraged to live independently and maintain their own apartmentquot and to get involved in the communityatlarge This is definitely a notch higher than those who require more supervision or care in accomplishing essential activities of daily living These are people who not only have acquired the skills and the confidence to become incomeearners but also have the abilities to express themselves in other fields such as the arts music sports and other meaningful activities The program provides three individuals the chance to share an apartment unit on a 24 hour basis including all the support they need quotto develop the skills needed to learn live and work successfully in the communityquot And so aside from the daily domestic chores and routines mentioned above they are trained to incorporate themselves into their community as independent individuals through meaningful engagement Specifically these individuals are given Case Management support in order for them to acquire housing assistance food stamps heating assistance and other essential domestic needs Likewise professional nursing care is provided for staff training and to help residents to maintain their health All in all Corliss group allows these participants the opportunity to be totally equipped as anybody else in the community through the special support it provides Otherwise they will remain unable to lead meaningful and independent lives It takes awareness and compassion for people to realize that certain needs are not met by some individuals because of certain disabilities Corliss through its work and its website fills up this gap in the minds and hearts of people What it is doing is practically raising a big extended family within a town and looking after its welfare on a daily basis something that will daunt any ordinary parent from facing or even considering Yes Corliss Institute Inc has been doing for many years now and accomplishing so much good and providing excellent service to many Not just in providing opportunities to live independently but also to acquire gainful employment through proper training Corliss has an expanded Employment Program to provide members with quottraining in work habits filling out applications using public transportation and the nuts and bolts of work habitsquot They are given training in quotinterpersonal relations on the job and how to handle changes in coworkers or supervisorsquot Promptness and wearing proper apparel are also inculcated among members Simple but essential skills that most of us take for granted Corliss group has shown the way to opening the hearts and minds of many people to reach out to the disadvantaged members of society
