Our residents make remarkable progress working with our dedicated staff, including Behavioral Support Specialists, who help to create and implement an individual care plan for each resident. Self-care, socialization with peers and life skills are the cornerstones of our program. Residents have household responsibilities based on their interests and abilities to encourage independence. Residents thrive amongst their peers, participate in a variety of recreational activities and become active members of their local community.
Our Direct Support Professionals (DSPs), provide person-centered care to the residents. DSPs work on emphasizing personal choice, assisting individuals with daily tasks and helping them to become more integrated in their communities. They also work with individuals to implement care plans, to promote educational and career goals, and to advance skill development and socialization. The Direct Support Professionals staff are trained in CPR/First Aid, Medication Administration, Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation, Positive Behavior Supports, Mental Health Supports and program specific training.
