COMPANION SERVICES

Companion services are used in lieu of In-Home and Community Support when a habilitative outcome is not appropriate or feasible (i.e. when the professional providing the service mainly does activities for the individual or supervises the individual versus assisting the individual to learn, enhance or maintain a skill). Companions may supervise, assist or even perform activities for an individual that include: grooming, household care,  meal preparation and planning, ambulating, medication administration in accordance with regulatory guidance and socialization.

IN-HOME & COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES

This is a direct service in which LIVE-IN DISABILITY SOLUTIONS will provide in-home and community settings to assist individuals in acquiring, maintaining and improving the skills necessary to live in the community, to live more independently, and to participate meaningfully in community life. Services consist of assistance, support and guidance (physical assistance, instruction, prompting, modeling, and reinforcement) in the general areas of self-transportation, relationship development and socialization, personal adjustment, participating in community functions and activities and use of community resources. The type and amount of assistance, support and guidance are informed by the assessed need for physical, psychological and emotional assistance established through the assessment and person-centered planning process.

Out-of-Home Respite

Out-of-Home Respite provides an opportunity for our clients to be outside the home. Families are free to enjoy time in their own home without the constraints of constant care, and they can devote more attention to siblings and other family members. Respite provides a temporary break between the family caregiver and the care recipient. To be most effective, you should consider respite services much earlier than you think you will need them. Respite services can be beneficial, meaningful, and enjoyable to both the caregiver and the care recipient. Sometimes, you may need respite in emergencies to deal with a personal health crisis, housing or job loss, or other immediate situations that might put the care recipient in harms way. Both emergency and planned respites are critical resources for caregivers who are caring for an individual with special needs.
