    A minimum of 40 hours of continuing education units (CEUs) is required every 2 years for administratorsand 12 hours CEU for staff every year. CPR and First Aid must be upgraded yearly and must be taught at the onset of new staff employment. Fingerprint and tuberculosis tests must be completed before hiring and 40 hours of training are administered to new staff members within the first ten days of employment.

    In turn, residents are taught adaptive behaviors, daily living skills, money management, socialization techniques, and more. These empower each resident to attain as much independence as possible.

Recreational Activities and Group Outings

     Residents participate in weekly council meetings that determine the group's social gatherings, planned activities, and recommend program improvements. All residents have choices for cultivating life and social skills, which will facilitate their transition to independent living within the community. SFRC provides ongoing links to staff and services to support this program. The facility is equipped with a van for transportation to and from recreational activities, as well as medical, dental and optical appointments.
