This practice allows for the individual to make their own choices and develop their abilities so they can reach their maximum potential. Furthermore, it allows the person to connect with people with community inclusion and be treated with respect.
Community Living Supports are used to increase or maintain personal self-sufficiency, facilitating an individual's achievement of his goals of community inclusion and participation, independence or productivity. The supports may be provided in the participant’s residence or in community settings.
In these settings we provide support around the clock in their house, apartment or condominium. In most cases up to three individuals can live together.
We also provide respite care to families that need a break.
We provide the folks we serve with their transportation needs. Our caregivers might use their vehicles or we provide a vehicle to the home. Rather it is to a movie, community outing or any activity, we ensure that they get there.
We dedicate time and allocate numerous resources to bring awareness and advocacy to the industry and to all stakeholders. We advocate in Lansing on behalf of those that reserve services, families and caregivers. Our goal is to advocate for proper funding so that the industry is sustainable for livable wages for caregivers and access to services are increased. Our philosophy is that the funding gets to the person actually receiving the services and the best way to do this is to create a workforce that is paid what they are worth. Turnover will drastically decrease and new people will enter the industry, thus increasing quality care.
We assist with activities of daily living (ADL’s) and instrumental (ADL’s).
