Our services include:
- Habilitation and educational programs run by staff daily
- LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) services as needed
- 24 hour a day awake staffing
- Internal Advocacy
- Individualized program planning annually
- Community outings offered frequently
- Comprehensive case management
- Full financial services
- Assistance with guardianship reporting
- Assistance in arranging transportation
- RN (Registered Nurse) services as a resource to our staff 24 hours a day
Our Instructors provide round-the-clock healthcare, as well as a warm, interactive environment filled with therapeutic activities and trips to local stores, parks and other public places of interest. Instructors are also involved in assisting clients with a variety of social and emotional coping skills through instruction. All ILS Instructors are required to attend a yearly set of trainings that can give them some of the tools needed to provide daily care for the
clients. Part of that training is a competency measure to ensure all instructors obtain the information and can implement those skill sets. Our Faculty Coordinators, or FC’s, work with the Instructors and provide leadership and guidance to coordinate different programs within the site. They set the standards for all Instructors.
Our Program Directors are responsible for overseeing the implementation of a spectrum of whole life services including health and recreational programs for the clients they serve. FC’s work closely with and are trained by their Program Directors.
Person Centered Plan
As part of our comprehensive services, each client has a plan of services developed and implemented. Each client will attend their Person Centered Plan on a yearly basis. Person Centered Plans lay out life goals, concerns and strengths of the client. A full interdisciplinary health and habilitation team, along with family members or others close to the client come together to discuss the life goals and assistance the client requires, review current goals and concerns and project new goals or adjustments of current goals. Some of the other individuals who might attend are the community access professionals who serves the individual in the community, the case manager from the Developmental Disabilities Administration, which is a division of Department of Social and Health services, and ILS Program Director.
