Lakeland Care Inc. at the 2023 Self Determination Conference

Lakeland Care is committed to living out its mission: Empowering Individuals, Strengthening Communities, and Inspiring Futures. Our participation in the 2023 Self Determination conference exemplified this mission in action, demonstrating our unwavering dedication to enhancing the lives of the individuals we serve.

Lakeland Care Inc. took great pride in being a part of this transformative event, which brought together individuals, professionals, and advocates from all corners of the self-determination community. We recognized this as an exceptional opportunity to not only learn from others but also to share our experiences, insight, and training resources.

Our participation at the conference was characterized by a series of member and Lakeland Care Inc. employee co-presentations. These presentations delved into the essence of community connections and ways in which we empower self-determination in employment. By highlighting success stories and practical strategies, we aimed to inspire and equip our fellow attendees with the tools to make a real difference in their lives and the greater community.

Advocacy efforts have always been an integral part of Lakeland Care. At the conference, we amplified our advocacy work by shedding light on Self Directed Supports, a concept we are deeply passionate about. Through engaging discussions and resources found at our sponsorship booth, we showcased the benefits of self-directed supports and how they are harnessed through Lakeland Care Inc. Our representation not only fostered a greater understanding of self-directed supports but also encouraged further exploration of the SDS model within attendees support network. In our participation at the 2023 Self Determination conference, Lakeland Care Inc. was not merely an attendee; we were an active contributor to the collective journey towards empowering individuals to lead self-determined lives, strengthening the communities they are part of, and inspiring futures filled with promise and possibility. It was an honor to be a part of this event, and we look forward to continued collaboration and progress in self-determination efforts. Together, we will build a brighter, more self-determined future for all.
