To provide innovative education, training, and research initiatives that improve quality of life for individuals with cognitive disabilities and those that support them.
Long-term Living is the belief that people can experience continued growth when provided with appropriate supports and opportunities that promote purpose, meaningful relationships, and being part of a community.
Individuals with cognitive disabilities often need life-long care. The Seaton Foundation believes that an individual's social and emotional needs are as important as their medical needs. By focusing on social and emotional needs, we can transform long-term care into Long-term Living.
