Discover Goodwill of Southern and Western Colorado holds the highest level of accreditation.
For adult clients with disabilities who require daily supervision, Goodwill offers two unique, safe and nurturing environments that provide sensory stimulation, calming activities and personal involvement. Individuals can take advantage of one of two Snoezelen multi-sensory environments.
What’s Snoezelen, you ask? The word is a combination of two Dutch words: snufflen (to sniff, seek out, or explore) and doezelen (to relax or be in a wonderful place). Snoezelen incorporates specialized sensory equipment and materials that can be individually customized to blend sights, sounds, textures, aromas and motion to provide stimulation and calming of the primary sensory systems.
Guests can learn new skills, form new relationships and enhance their physical activity through pursuits that include: arts and crafts, music, games, bowling, field trips and holiday celebrations.
A full-time Certified Nursing Assistant is on staff and a Registered Nurse visits the centers weekly. Goodwill’s CPR and First Aid qualified staff also provides adults with personal daily living activities, blood pressure checks, weight tracking and administration of medications.
