Step-by-Step Habilitation

Habilitation is a service designed to increase a member’s ability to learn daily living skills to help them become more independent and improve upon their life skills. Each member has unique and specific habilitation goals. Goals are determined by what the member needs and wants. They could include activities such as learning to use their AAC device, getting enough exercise, cooking simple meals, caring for their pets etc. Strategies for accomplishing these goals and milestones are tracked and monitored by a provider. Habilitation strategies can be incorporated into everyday living activities in fun, innovative ways.

Comprehensive Respite Services

Respite is a service designed to support the member’s parent, primary caregiver and natural supports. Respite provides relief through short term supervisory care. Sometimes, respite is also a break for the member. During respite, the provider simply plays, engages and spends time with the member doing activities that they enjoy. Caregivers can use this time to accomplish things that would ordinarily be hard while caring for a loved on with a disability; and members can use this time to spend time doing activities they enjoy at home or in the community. Some families utilize respite for before & after school care, summer breaks, help getting to/from recreational groups and therapies or to just provide day-to-day assistance.

Specialized Attendant Care

Attendant care is non-medical  assistance for personal care tasks, home tasks, or specialized supervision.  This assistance may include helping a member get dressed, eat, use the bathroom, mobility assistance, help with hygiene, light cleaning, grocery shopping, medication pick up, and laundry. These tasks are designed to help the individual attain and maintain personal cleanliness, activities of daily living, and safe  and sanitary living conditions in the least restrictive environment of their home.

Person-Centered Planning

Person-centered planning is the mindset that places the member at the center of their services. It helps the member receive their services through a social model of care instead of a medical model of care. Person-centered plans are developed based on empowering the member to plan their own life, through self-determination and inclusion. Throughout our service delivery, we are constantly adapting to the unique needs of our members so that they receive the supports they not only need, but want. This can only be accomplished by investing back into our members through workforce development, family support and community engagement. We recognize that we can only meet the needs of our members by supporting them as individuals, giving them the opportunity the set the tone for their service delivery and experience.
