All Kinds of News for January 06, 2016
The Landing Pad is a place where most incoming clients begin their journey at Living Well Transitions in a more structured and supported living experience. This provides clients with time to acclimate to life in Boulder, their program and their new community of peers. Clients use their time at the Landing Pad to prepare for independent living, including searching for and outfitting their own apartment in Boulder. The Landing Pad is a beautiful five bedroom, five bath retreat-like home located in a safe, private North Boulder neighborhood with easy access to downtown.
What is included:
- On-site staffing while clients are present (mornings, evenings, overnights and weekends).
- Initial ride support while clients learn to get around Boulder on their own (in addition to local bus pass and access to loaner bikes).
- Continental breakfast, house snacks, some dinners and a weekly $50 grocery stipend for personal food.
- Weekly House meetings and daily Check-Ins.
How it works
- Clients and staff co-create a values-based culture grounded in safety, inclusivity, personal growth, respect, accountability, and contribution.
- Clients leave premises by 9am each morning and attend individual therapeutic sessions, groups and activities. Most nights they return to the house at 8:30pm, check-in with staff, and have free time.
- Clients agree to abide by house rules and engage in community chores.
- Clients can expect to stay 45-90 days.
Preparing to launch
- A client’s readiness to move into their own apartment is determined by their clinical team.
- When deemed appropriate clients will receive the "Initial Move-In Budget" template, accounting for security deposit, 1st month's rent payment, furniture, household goods and initial food shopping. This must be approved by the family and clinical team.
- With the help of LWT staff, clients will search for and view apartments, sign a lease, make moving arrangements and purchase household items.
