Access Living provides skilled support to people who experience developmental disabilities, in their own homes, throughout the community. A wide range of options and services are designed to assist clients to imagine and believe in the possibilities of their full potential. Programs and services are tailored to support each client’s abilities and goals. Key components of our services include:
Clients have the opportunity to gain skills in all aspects of their lives by making choices about daily living and long term goal planning. Supporting choices fosters strong independent living skills, a sense of self-worth and teaches the value of self-advocacy. Making choices empowers and recognizes the value inherent in being a participant in all aspects of living independently.
Access Living understands that being able to live independently is one of the most important goals of people experiencing disabilities. Our support of personal independence extends to all aspects of our services. By participating in all aspects of daily living, clients learn new skills and strive to achieve a greater degree of independence.
Access Living offers services designed to expand opportunities for people to live, work, and fully participate in their communities.
Services are uniquely designed to support each client. Individual accomplishments, goals and supports are reviewed with clients, family members, and others involved in supporting an independent life.
Supported hours are tailored to the assessed need of each individual. This can range from 24-Hour 1:1 staff or more common, support hours can include staff availability for a range of activities throughout the day including, but not limited to, teaching and support of life skills, assistance with integration into their communities, and participation in fun and engaging activities to name a few. We offer an on-call system that is available 24/7 for clients, family members, and community members to reach a member of our staff.
Most clients receive services through referrals by the Department of Developmental Disabilities, and receive core waiver services. Additionally, we provide services to people who are private pay when they have not qualified for core waiver services.
