FOUNTIAN OF LIFE - SVAYUS
Svayus is more than just a program; it is a life style that facilitates positive interactions and direct contact with simulated nature to increase mental health, psychological and spiritual development.
“Memories of yesterday to function today”
Happiness comes from discovering who God made us to be, discovering the power he has given us, and putting that power to work for the overall benefit of others.
Svayus is an exclusive function relevant therapeutic care model based on the theories of perception in action, retro genesis, progressive lowered stress threshold, person environment occupation (PEO) and basic ability to function (BATF). The objective of Svayus is to enable our clients to function at their best ability. A Svayus activity program is based on seven basic skill sets that are essential to maintain and facilitate over all functions- Social emotional activities, large motor skills, small motor activities, visual activities, reasoning activities, listening and language activities. Svayus uses all five traditionally recognized five human senses of sight (ophthalmoception), hearing (audioception), taste (gustaoception), smell (olfacoception or olfacception), and touch (tactioception) to constitute, modify and direct human’s behavior, attitude and posture. People are not with us to quietly fade from the society, but come to us to live a dignified life. We know that the human spirit glows until we take our last breath. Central to our mission is connecting our people with the natural elements that they are exposed and familiar with since birth and ensuring a structured routine life filled with positive meaningful stimulations from their immediate surrounding environment. Decline is hastened when we stop nurturing the human spirit through meaningful connection.
