Activity & Rehabilitation

People in need of rehabilitation or support for work or activity can receive a wide range of counseling, education and resources based on their individual needs. Active community participation helps people enhance their social skills, strengthen their self-image, and improve their quality of life.

Employment and activities for people with disabilities

Many people with disabilities possess valuable experience and knowledge that can be used in a variety of jobs, but sometimes they require assistance or working facilities, accessibility, working hours and tasks that meet their needs, generally called reasonable accommodations.


Home-Based Rehabilitation

Through home-based rehabilitation, people receive training and counseling to suit their needs. The rehabilitation is largely carried out at the users’ home or in their local environment. It is for people who have applied for social home care or residential care when the assessment shows that the rehabilitation will likely be successful.
