Compassionate client-specific care for adults with disabilities.
Transforming disabilities into personal strengths.
What we do
Eric’s House is a safe and positive space for adults with a wide range of disabilities. We provide clients with a structured environment in which they can grow and learn adult life skills while socializing and developing new relationships. Here at Eric’s House we strive to disprove the stigmas against disabilities. Not only are we here to maximize the potential of each client, but we are also here to provide daily respite. We specialize in individualized respite care and client-centric programming. Our goal is to provide the best possible care and focus our efforts on improving the quality of our clients’ lives while encouraging their active participation in society.
Love people, love God
The staff here at Eric’s House are well-educated caregivers, teachers, and aides specially trained to work with clients dealing with Autism, Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and other developmental disabilities. We give our clients a chance to develop various life skills through hands-on community based approaches as well as structured in-class learning. In-class learning will be provided on a one-on-one basis with personalized academics. Our staff are knowledgeable, understanding, and compassionate, each having worked in the industry for many years with a variety of clientele.
A large part of our goal to educate and build confidence in our clients includes socializing everyone in a positive community and creating a safe space for them to have fun! Our in-house entertainment such as our theatre, swings, and games are meant to make our clients comfortable and to keep them looking forward to their days spent with us.
Our various socializing and enrichment exercises are comprised of life skills classes, music therapy sessions, and physical therapies to help keep our clients’ bodies and minds healthy while encouraging them to thrive in their communities. We believe that positively cultivating willpower and promoting resolution in each individual will help them to overcome their limitations.
Though our in-house activities encourage socialization amongst peers, Eric’s House also provides off-site tours and excursions for individuals inclined towards more physical activities. The outings we schedule are planned for the purpose of bettering each individual’s social skills outside of Eric’s House within the community. These activities promote proper social etiquette and are a chance to take their life skills lessons outside of the classroom and into the community. Not only are these outings educational, but they are also safe, fun, and exciting ways for our clients to experience new things and the educational adventures Calgary has to offer.
