These services are part of a comprehensive array of community-based services we offer, that are designed to:

  • Improve or maintain basic living skills;
  • Offer vocational, volunteer and/or community activities;
  • Enhance social and personal development;
  • Include consultation services, as needed and as specified in service agreements, to improve or maintain communication, mobility, and physical and psychological health; 
  • Meet the individualized needs and achieve the desired goals and outcomes as specified in the service agreement;
  • Support the individual to achieve and maintain valued social roles, such as being an employee or community volunteer; and
  • Promote personal choice and control in all aspects of the individual’s life and services. This includes involving your loved one, to the extent that he or she is able, in the selection, hiring, training, and ongoing evaluation of his or her primary staff, and in determining the quality of services.
