California Caregiver programs
Personal assistance program
Specially designed for people transitioning into adulthood and older individuals, our personal assistance program assigns a qualified and compassionate caregiver to help clients perform various daily tasks and access their communities. These services are tailored to meet our client’s individual needs and are available 24/7, including weekends and holidays.
Personal assistants can help with:
- Attending appointments and events
- Shopping and errands
- Attending college and after-school programs
- Assistance with personal and pet care
- Stand-by assistance with walking and transfers
- Medication, appointment and routine reminders
- Meal preparation and feeding
- Sitter services (in-home or facility)
In-home respite program
We understand that family caregivers often feel stressed and overwhelmed while caring for a loved one with a developmental disability. Our respite program lets families take a break knowing that their child is being cared for in the familiarity of home. Our screened and trained caregivers can be scheduled at parents’ request.
Some families prefer to have someone they already know, such as a neighbor, friend, or relative, provide respite care authorized by the Regional Center. Maxim can expedite the hiring process for these individuals so the family’s person of choice can be a paid respite caregiver.
Our homemaker program helps safeguard individuals in their homes by assisting with daily living, personal care, and home maintenance tasks – ensuring that elderly or disabled individuals can maintain peace of mind and an independent lifestyle.
Intensive behavior support
Maxim’s intensive behavior support program provides respite relief to primary caregivers of individuals with challenging behaviors. A board-certified behavior analyst designs a care plan for each client and performs regular supervisory visits with all direct care staff to ensure the safety and success of our client and team.
Our thoughtful approach has allowed us to provide services to families that have been unsuccessful with other programs.
Maxim has a variety of specialty programs in California designed to meet the unique needs of each family. To learn more about programs available in your area, please get in touch with local Maxim office or your Regional Center’s service coordinator.
