A range of work areas
The residents join one of nine work teams with supervision, based on their levels of functioning and interests. These work areas provide therapeutic value along with all the benefits of a proper job – servitude, acknowledgement, pride, self-esteem, companionship, quality of life and hope.
Intellectually disabled day workers from the area also join the teams. The working day starts at 09:00 and ends at 16:30, and this includes lunch and breaks. The services and products that are sold provide an important income stream to Horizon House and its residents.
All the work-area teams receive continuous training to perform their daily duties independently in addition to acquiring a range of life skills.
Some of the residents are employed by businesses in the area.
