Day Habilitation

Each of our three centers provides individualized medical, therapeutic, and developmental services to meet the needs of those requiring enhanced assistance and support while also fostering personal independence.

Referrals to LifeStream’s Day Habilitation programs are generally made by the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services.

For more information contact Joan Thompson, Director of Day Support Services or Loren Gastall, Assistant Director of Day Support Services.

Community Based Day Supports.

Community Based Day Supports is a program of supports designed to help individuals enrich their lives and enjoy a full range of community activities.  It also helps people prepare for work and develop skills in personal, social and community activities.

Supported Employment

The Supported Employment program bolsters the lives of our adults with disabilities by helping them train for and secure meaningful jobs at businesses in the community. The program offers vocational assessment job readiness, and work skills training. Other program benefits include:

  • Matching each individual to a position based on skills and interests
  • One-on-one coaching and on-site support as needed
  • An established work schedule from as little as one to 40+ hours per week
  • Assistance with resumes, preparing for interviews and researching job openings

Supported Employment is funded by the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services. Local companies that hire supported employment candidates often receive substantial federal tax credits.

This community-based program helps adults with disabilities find and maintain employment at area businesses. The program offers vocational assessment, job readiness, and work skills training.
