The purpose of launching this project is to give persons with learning difficulties the opportunity to learn to live in a group home environment and also to offer respite to their parents or guardians.  We have set up our first group home on 3rd February 2004 in Puchong. We have 6 residents and Ms Peggy Che is the house guardian.

The residents experience independent living by learning the various living skills. They are assigned house chores like sweeping, cleaning, cooking, laundry etc. They also have time to improve themselves on reading and writing skills.

We are eating out tonight, giving ourselves a treat. It is also a good chance to learn how to order our food.

 

Group Home life is never dull. Residents have time to indulge in their favourite games after they have done their house work. Here Kee Yong is enjoying his jig-saw puzzle (top pix) and the ladies prefer a game of carom (bottom pix)
