Services are developed to meet the needs, abilities and interests of each individual and opportunities include volunteer placements in the community, supported employment, social / recreational opportunities and access to on-site programs and tools.
At our Calgary office, Chrysalis offers our individuals a range of educational and engaging opportunities on-site, such as: a computer lab with a variety of interactive learning software, an active-leisure fitness area to develop personalized fitness programs and activities, creative arts and crafts programs, music therapy program with weekly visits from a music therapist, our multi-sensory Snoezelen Room, cooking program, reading program, a horticulture program featuring a community garden, and a diverse scope of training.
Out in the Calgary community, Chrysalis has partnered with many different agencies and organizations to also offer our individuals with community-based programs, such as: dance, yoga, indoor soccer, art, performance and much more.
Depending on an individual’s wishes, interests and abilities, funding dollars are provided to Chrysalis by the Alberta Government’s Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD), Calgary Region on behalf of the individuals for staff to help support the development of new relationships, while working along-side their peers and staff as they achieve a greater level of independence in each of their chosen activities.
