Community-based services for children and adults with disabilities

These services are designed to help individuals with special needs achieve their full potential. Trained IDD professionals work with families, case managers and the individual to develop special, individualized plans focused on achieving both short- and long-range goals. These plans are adjusted as necessary throughout the year to ensure maximum results.

Focusing on habilitation (training), our IDD staff work one-on-one with these individuals both in the home and out in the community to teach new skills, while maintaining current skills and improving health outcomes. Services are designed to ensure that each individual participates in activities that support his or her definition of a meaningful day.

Individualized services may include:

  • Community living and support: Enables the participant to live successfully in his/her own home or the home of his/her family or other natural supports, while being an active member of his/her community. This can include nursing-level care.
  • Respite: Designed to provide families/primary caregivers with periodic relief. This can include nursing-level care.
  • Supported employment: Designed to assist participants with choosing, acquiring and maintaining a job.
  • Community networking: Day activities that support the participant in an integrated community setting, outside the individual’s private residence.
