Residential Group Living Services provide six-eight adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to live in a supervised group home setting where they are taught skills to enable independence. With over a 30 years history of maintaining high standards of care, JRDS provides a safe, nurturing learning environment with 24/7 supervision.
Community Waiver Services are designed to empower adults with disabilities to learn skills needed to be as independent as possible in both day-to-day activities and residence. Individuals can receive assistance with 24/7 supervised residential living services, assistance in their own home, or in their family residence. Two to four individuals may share a home with 24/7 supervision where they are taught to maintain their home, manage their finances, plan, purchase and cook their meals, and maintain their independence. Others may elect to live on their own or continue to reside with their family.
In other situations, a family may need respite care services that allow them to have time to complete errands, enjoy time with their spouse or spend a few quiet hours alone. These services are also available through the Community Waiver Services. In all forms of Supported Living Waiver Services, individuals are provided with many opportunities to achieve their highest potential.
The Creative Connections program enables participants to engage in new experiences and explore new environments. It allows individuals to communicate with others and explore their wants and needs. Each person has an individualized plan that allows them to choose from many daily activities. Group activities and one-on-one training provide individuals with the chance to strengthen skills and gain supported independence. Training is provided in the areas of self-help, cognitive, community participation, domestic, sensory motor, social, communication and leisure.
