All of our services include the use of person-centered planning. The service is designed around the support needs and preferences of the individual we support. The service environment is matched to the lifestyle preference of the individual who is requesting a service. For instance, does the person benefit from an urban or rural setting, animals in the home, and the need for a structured setting or preference for a more “laid-back” lifestyle? All of these preferences, and many more, are considered before making a match. If the individual needs or benefits from assistance with decision-making, a family member that the individual trusts will be asked to assist in deciding which environment would best suit the individual’s strengths and needs. The individual service plan is written after the interviews, trial visits, and consultations with knowledgeable parties have been completed.
