Personal Supports

We provide assistance for individuals to live independently in the least restrictive environment in their own homes/ apartments as well as in the home of their caregiver. Support services are provided on an individualized schedule, (between 20 and 30 hours per week), and are designed to assist in building the necessary skills to maximize independence. These supports can be provided in the participant’s own home, family home, in the community, and at an individual competitive, integrated work site. Personal Support Services include, but are not limited to:

  • Hands-on assistance, prompting, and cueing that enables the individual to use assistive technology or accomplish tasks they are unable to perform independently due to a physical disability including assistance with activities of daily living (i.e. bathing, completing personal hygiene routines, etc).
  • Support, supervision, and training may be provided in such activities as housekeeping, meal preparation, and personal care, and assistance with hygiene and grooming.
  • Community and social enrichment support to attend community-integrated events, sporting events, transportation, and accompaniment to social and recreational clubs/activities.
  • Supports to implement behavior plan strategies and at-home therapies, if required.
