The Peppers uses the following schedule:
Meals are available complimentary to all living at the Peppers, to all housemates whether they be
renters or worker residents. There are no charges for meals and there may be limits as well with special requests. If sodium
or vegetarian is important for example, please ask and we will help where we can, especially with simple eliminations and
Breakfast from 8 to 10am
Movie in the main Living Room
Lunch 12 to 1:30
Peppers Country Club and various activities on and off site
Evening TV with Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune
Meals brought to the dining room or in the private rooms are fine. After dinner a final visit to each room is done
to collect any dishes from the day, and this constitutes the final room check for the end of the day.
Sunday has a regular breakfast and then a staged lunch and dinner, Which may be sandwiches or pizza, etc. So Sunday
is our less formal day of the week.
All rooms are checked between 10 and 10:30am, and the renters are spoken with and encouraged to participate in the
day, starting immediately with that days movie selection. Help with directing or encouraging activities is added to promote
spending more time out of the room.
Each weekend a worker will work with
renters to see about their preferences for activities for the week ahead and/or ongoing. Arranging to get a bus pass,
rides to church from their denomination, help joining the Y, ordering materials for crafts, etc., these ideas and many more
will be sorted through to help keep renters busy and happy.
Rooms are cleaned twice weekly, once deeply and again as touchup, to help keep the house clean and
Beds are changed and laundry is done every weekend.
