With the help and support of OHI, people achieve their own personal milestones. OHI guides and teaches life lessons to help each person in their community. Emotional management and assistance in helping people establish strong relationship with friends and community members also is encouraged through OHI.
OHI specializes in supporting adults with Prader-Willi Syndrome, a genetic condition that is described primarily as a severe eating disorder which left unchecked, leads to life-threatening obesity. OHI helps monitor food intake, develop exercise programs, encourage community involvement and assist with coordinating necessary services.
OHI strongly supports self-advocacy. In doing so, OHI encourages people to get involved in groups such as Speaking Up For Us (SUFU) as well as local community groups.
OHI actively participates in Special Olympics throughout New England. From local to state to international competition, OHI supports people to prepare for and compete athletically in events of their choice. Special Olympics and OHI’s involvement are highlighted events people look forward to socially while providing growth and personal achievement.
