Absolute HCBS LLC was created on the three principles of providing great customer service, being an excellent place to work, and most of all – providing a valuable service to the individuals with developmental disabilities in Arizona. We make every effort to accommodate the needs of each of our families. We know that the men and women who provide the services to our valued families are the backbones of our company and we deeply value their service and dedication.

Services are delivered through a personalized approach, and we work so that our families will be able to embrace this journey every day, with as much dignity and independence as possible.

We go above and beyond to compassionately serve your loved ones by delivering caring, quality services provided by the entire Absolute family.

A message from the CEO

Absolute HCBS is driven by the love we have for our community.  That love lays the foundation for our approach to service provision that we then build upon with the same compassion each individual has for their very own family.  With over 96% of our administrative staff having family members, or experience working or volunteering with individuals with developmental disabilities, we understand the need for our agency to provide quality services that simplify your life.  We strive to support our Direct Support Professionals, members, and guardians through extensive training, resources, guidance, and of course, love.  I am honored that you have chosen us to care for you.

Welcome to the Absolute Family!

What we do

Step-by-Step Habilitation

Habilitation is a service designed to help individuals to learn daily living skills to help them become more independent. We work on goals and objectives with each consumer ranging from learning to tie shoes or using the bathroom to riding the bus to work. Strategies for goals and objectives are written for each consumer based on his/her needs and are highly individualized.

Specialized Attendant Care

Attendant care is non-medical personal care assistance.  This assistance may include helping the consumer get dressed, eat, use the bathroom, help with hygiene, light cleaning, and laundry.

Comprehensive Respite Services

Respite simply gives the parent/guardian a chance to have time to accomplish things that would ordinarily be much more difficult while caring for someone with a disability.  Respite can be used to have a date night or for a chance to take the individual out for them to have some fun in the community.

Person-Centered Planning

Person-centered planning is a plan that gives an outline for each consumer.  It is highly individualized and involves many hours of interviews to map out where the individual has been and where the individual envisions themselves as they grow older.
