The program incorporates an array of interests including cooking, art, music, and recreation. An emphasis on community is fostered by a multitude of opportunities and activities. In addition, daily living skills are cultivated and enhanced using assistive technology. Also offered is a state of the art Snoezelen Room for total sensory stimulation, the Butterfly Salon for personal beauty, nursing services, and whirlpool hydrotherapy. CCR strives to provide a direct care staff to participant ratio of nearly 1 to 3.
The David Lokey Center was established in 1975 by Mrs. Ethel Terrell who at the time was president of the Cecil County ARC. She set aside funds to begin the program, which was dedicated to David Lokey who had worked with children with developmental disabilities since age 15 and succumbed to cancer while a freshman in college. Situated on 8 acres with a pond frequented by native wildlife, the Center combines contemporary services with peaceful surroundings. Since 2000 the center has offered programs providing individuals a creative setting where they can review life and socialization skills and enjoy crafts and horticultural therapy in a caring environment that encourages the optimal development of each person. In addition, individuals are encouraged to participate in community outreach efforts and recreational fun outside the center.
CCR currently operates 10 homes with the capacity to serve 40 adults. Trained staff assist the residents with activities of daily living for continued development in a family-like setting.
CCR is a registered provider in the Eastern Shore and Central Maryland Respite Care Projects and with Delaware DDDS. Respite Care is available to families who need short-term relief from the constant and often stressful care they give their loved one who has a disability. Care is provided in a CCR residence.
