Community Alternatives is a private, non-profit organization created specifically to support people with disabilities, and their families, in choosing and designing a life for themselves within their community. Our Mission is to encourage and promote the total integration of people who experience a disability, to live as independently as possible in the community of their choice. Community Alternatives will administer the highest degree of personal and family centered care, and will do so by producing high quality outcomes, focusing on employee excellence and carefully matching Caregiver expertise to individual needs. We provide companionship, medication reminders, meal preparation, grocery shopping, errands, reading, socialization, light housekeeping, observation, grooming & dressing, range of motion, transfers & ambulation, incontinence care, diabetic care, medical appointment assistance, hospice support, respite care, pet care, emotional support, travel care and hospital support. At Community Alternatives we promote activities for elderly adults and adults with cognitive, physical and/or mental health disabilities. In the past we have attended the Legal Country Drag races at the WI International Speedway in Kaukauna, attended Packer Fun night, hosted Art in the Park, attended a corn roast, participated in the Shawano Community Parade several years with a Wizard of Oz float and a Minion themed float and had a Valentines Day decorating contest. Possible upcoming events: see the Zoo at Doc's Harley Davidson, go to the Navarino Nature Center, participate in a Fourth of July decorating contest and attend ThursdayZ at Franklin Park in Shawano.
