In Home Family Supports

In-Home Family Support provides staff who teach skills which lead to greater independence and self sufficiency. Trained In-Home staff work with the person on specific goals which the person and their family choose. We work with the family and the county to choose goals which are appropriate to the person and their situation. Staffing hours are flexible, based on the person and the family’s schedule. We are often meeting the person at their home in the afternoon and going on an outing and then working into the evening. The focus is on decreasing dependence on caregivers and opening up possibilities for the future. Some typical goals:
  • Budgeting and Finance
  • Exercise, Using a Health Club
  • Cooking, Nutrition
  • Social Skills, Cultivating Friendships
  • Using Public Transportation
  • Using assisted communication devices
  • Following medical recommendations
