Assisting people with developmental disabilities, adults with physical disabilities, and seniors to achieve their life goals and remain in the community of their choice.
Senior and Disability Services of Community Connections offers customized services for individuals with developmental disabilities, adults with physical disabilities and seniors in partnership with families. All of our services are individualized and designed by the customer, family and our service coordinators with the goal of meeting specific individual needs.
Services may include:
For individuals with developmental disabilities we offer a variety of living options. We support customers and guardians in locating and maintaining a comfortable and affordable place to live in the community.
When a customer wants to get a job we provide employment services to aid them in acquiring and/or maintaining paid employment. Once on the job, we can provide support and training to assist the customer in being as successful as possible on the job.
Community Based Services
We provide services in the community to support customers with everyday errands such as grocery shopping or going to the post office, recreational activities such as hiking, swimming, or whatever community based activity interests them.
Chore and Respite Services
For seniors and adults with physical disabilities we offer chore services to help with housekeeping, cooking, grocery shopping, or other tasks to help the customer stay living in the environment of their choice. Respite services are provided to give the unpaid primary caregiver a break to attend to their own personal needs.
Personal Care Services
For individuals who need physical assistance with personal care needs we offer Personal Care Assistance Services (PCA). This service is customized based on the individual’s needs and can include assistance toileting, dressing, bathing, transferring, mobility, etc.
Planning and Providing Services
Our service coordinators partner with each customer, their family or guardian, and other community team members to develop a plan based on the needs of each person. The scope of the planned services depends on the funding level approved by the state.
For individuals with developmental disabilities the plan yields specific goals designed to assist each customer in achieving greater independence, community belonging, and a satisfying life. Plan goals define the supports and skills needed to accomplish their life goals.
Services to help customers achieve their planned goals take many forms. We provide one-on-one direct care staff to work with customers in community settings, at home or at a job site. Service coordinators work in partnership with customers and other team members to continually monitor progress towards goals. Strategies are modified when they aren’t working or when the customer’s goals and interests change.
