Day & Vocational Services
MENTOR Oregon’s day and vocational services offer an array of daily supports and engaging activities for individuals with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) or mental health challenges who also live in one of our specialized group homes. Adults in our day and vocational services have continued opportunities to learn and grow while seeing friends and staff members on a daily basis.
Skill-building and Support Groups
We believe that every person is unique—with their own strengths and challenges. That’s why our day and vocational programs include innovative skill-building exercises and support groups catered to each person’s specific needs. Our staff develops Individualized Support Plans (ISPs) to ensure that all individuals take part in specialized support groups where they can learn from peers with similar challenges. The adults also participate in skill-building activities that best help them thrive.
We help individuals develop goals in the following areas:
- Brain injury support and education
- Substance abuse treatment
- Individualized therapies
- Skill building/problem solving
- Money management
- Current events and critical thinking
Our specialized team that provides hands-on care for the adults includes a qualified mental health associate (QMHA), a qualified mental health professional (QMHP), a licensed professional councilor (LPC), and a community-based psychiatrist. This team works closely with each adult to provide support for their specific needs.
Our staff also incorporates structured learning and fun to help individuals reach the goals that are established in their ISPs. Participants join their peers in activities involving:
- Arts & crafts
- Social skills development
- Meal preparation
- Community outings
- Volunteer work
