|COMMUNITY LIVING ARRANGEMENTS
|It's about living life to the fullest and feeling safe. It's about independence, self-determination and feeling good about yourself. And it's about time you see how DEC's support makes a positive difference.
A QUALITY COMMUNITY HOME ENVIRONMENT
|Individuals who reside in DEC's community homes need some level of self-help improvements and domestic, adaptive and socialization supports. These generally include transportation to and from doctors' appointments, grocery shopping, budgeting and money management, social interaction, and help with daily living skills including hygiene and personal grooming, housekeeping and meal preparation, hobbies and exercise, recreational and leisure activities, educational development, and safety assistance/survival skills.
SUPPORTIVE LIVING SERVICES
|Individuals in DEC's Supportive Living Services Program live in their own homes, apartments and boarding homes. A highly qualified community support specialist, under the close supervision of DEC's Director of Community Services, personalizes and fully implements an annual plan for each individual, and assesses individual needs with the participation of an outstanding interdisciplinary team. The progress of each individual's goals are rigorously documented and analyzed. |
DEC's professional staff keeps a keen eye on health concerns, monitors medications, and tracks medical appointments to ensure they are made in a timely manner. We believe the individuals we serve have a right to an "everyday life"- a life in which they make their own decisions, have friends and social interactions, and contribute to society.
DEC ... where passion, training and vision make a positive difference.
