We understand mental illness. Prior to entering a home to provide care, we assess the level of assistance required
as a whole and collaborate as a team to determine a comprehensive care plan. Each care plan is constructed with goals
and objectives for individuals to achieve with the support and encouragement of their caregivers.
Areas of focus may include but are not limited to: medication reminders, personal hygiene, maintaining a clean
and safe living environment, educating and assisting with healthy meal plans, meal preparation, attending community
events to encourage socialization, and exploring work or business opportunities.
Transitional Case Management
A Transitional Case Manager (TCM) aids individuals in all aspects of transitioning from institutional to independent
living. TCM’s prepare their individuals for discharge into the community by assisting with a variety of necessities
including but not limited to: housing, medical, educational, and functional supports.
Community Support Professional
A Community Support Professional (CSP) works one on one with individuals to help them achieve goals outlined in their
personalized recovery plan. A CSP visits the individual’s home on a regular basis to perform specific, customized,
and comprehensive rehabilitation services such as: skill building, coping mechanisms, financial management, medical
appointments, and community immersion.
