Daily Living & Life Skills Training Overview

Developing daily living and essential social and life skills are the first steps towards independent living. Because some concepts might be challenging, an excellent and flexible learning methodology is crucial in such training workshops.

This comprehensive workshop empowers participants to develop essential daily living and life skills, promoting independence and self-sufficiency. We utilise engaging, interactive methods tailored to diverse needs and learning styles.

In this daily living and life skills training workshop, New Reflections will work with participants and their carers to develop goals, everyday skills and support systems so that participants will be able to take good care of themselves and their homes.
