Home Life: Direct care staff help people eat right, exercise regularly, and progress with their physical and psychological therapy programs in a supportive home environment.
Employment & Daytime Activities: People are encouraged to work and interact with the community as much as possible. We have employment partnerships with ABC and PossAbilities, and Opportunity Services. We can also assist with transportation if there are no other means of getting to and from their workplace.
Recreational Opportunities: Staff provide many recreational activities to suit each person’s interests such as going to parks, bowling, fishing, camping, dancing, and just hanging out.
In-Home Support: At least one staff member is present whenever a person is home during the day, unless their program dictates that they get a few hours of alone time during the week. Our direct support professionals are trained with the knowledge needed to assist our residents with activities while respecting their dignity as adults.
Health Services: A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) is assigned to each group home. LPN’s assist with medical and dental appointments. We emphasize a proactive approach to healthcare. All health-related notes are reviewed in real time by the HSD. The staff is on-call 24 hours per day to answer questions and address any health situations that arise.
Contact with Parents & Guardians: Parents and guardians are included as much as possible when planning services. We realize that the person being supported, and their family members, are the people who best understand what supports are needed.
Community Education Classes: Residents are encouraged to take advantage of community education class or workshop that may help them become more independent. This may include cooking, cleaning, or other independent living skills.
