Support Planning for Seniors and People with Disabilities
Usually people are happier living in their homes than in institutions, but there are challenges for seniors and people with disabilities. Government Home and Community Based Waivers provide funds for supports and services to people who qualify. The paperwork can be daunting. We are certified to help people complete it. We enjoy helping clients find cost effective ways to use funds for core necessities such as personal assistance, good diet, day programs and home maker assistance AND meet new goals. Past clients have been able to purchase supplies for autism, participate in community fitness programs, pay living wages to their support assistants and experience new ways to engage in their communities. See CDCS for more information.
There are helpful resources to empower people with disabilities, especially intellectual disabilities to live safely without fear of physical or sexual abuse. We try to help caregivers locate training for themselves and their loved ones. See the Prevent Abuse resource list for more information. If you do not see something to meet your needs, contact us for more direction.
