Care for the Intellectually Disabled
Able Mind & Body Home Care provides a variety of community-based support and service options for persons with intellectual disabilities. Our Direct Support Professionals use a person-focused, outcomes-based approach to support each individual to live a meaningful, inclusive life of his/her choice.
Through the provision of our services, individuals learn, maintain, or improve skills through their participation in a variety of everyday-life activities. These activities are necessary for individuals to live in the community, to live more independently, or to be more productive and participatory in community life.
Homemaker and Chore Services
These services can only be provided when a household member is temporarily absent or unable to manage the home, or when no landlord or agency caretaker staff is responsible to perform the homemaker activities. Homemaker Services must be provided by a qualified homemaker and may include cleaning, laundry, and other general household care.
Home & Community Habilitation Services
This is a direct (face-to-face) service provided in-home and in community settings to assist individuals in acquiring, maintaining, and improving self-help, domestic skills, socialization, and the adaptive skills necessary to reside successfully in home and community-based settings. Services consist of support in the general areas of self-care, communication, fine and gross motor skills, mobility, personal adjustment, relationship development, socialization, and use of community resources. Habilitation may be provided up to 16 hours a day based on the needs of the individual.
Companion Services are provided to individuals living in private residences for the limited purposes of providing supervision and necessary care and minimal assistance that is focused solely on the health and safety of the adult individual (18 years of age and older) with an Intellectual Disability. Companion Services are used in lieu of habilitation services to protect the health and welfare of the individual when a habilitative outcome is not appropriate or feasible (that is, when the individual is not learning, enhancing, or maintaining a skill). This service can also be used to supervise individuals during socialization or non-habilitative activities when necessary to ensure the individual‘s safety. This service may not be provided at the same time as any other direct service.
