Isolation… Depression… Hours spent in front of the TV… This is an unfortunate reality for many Alaskans who experience disabilities. The combination of long, dark winters, busy caregivers, and a growing elder population, means a lot of folks in the Anchorage area simply don’t have adequate opportunity to socialize with their peers.
LifeWorks is here to change all that. Using modern, safe, four wheel drive minivans as well as accessible vans, we transport clients away from the monotony of their everyday surroundings to our activity center and points beyond.
To ensure optimum socialization, we arrange groups based on our clients’ ages, interests, emotional needs, and personality types.
We offer table games, a craft room, history/cultural presentations, billiards, Nintendo Wii games, holiday festivals, range-of-motion exercises, trivia, bingo, sing-alongs, and many other socially stimulating opportunities.
