Persons who want additional supports within their homes, living either with their families or on their own, can utilize PDI’s trained staff in a variety of Supported Living Services (SLS). Services that they may choose are assistance with personal care needs, management of their homemaker skills, money management guidance, mentorship, or simple respite care.
Each individual works with PDI and their support team to determine what SLS services fit best with their life style and their needs. PDI impacts their lives in the manner that the individuals wants and remains a reliable support for them whenever needed.
Individuals who want to engage in activities within the community can choose to participate in PDI’s Supported Community Connections (SCC) Program. Activities for the program are chosen by each individual and are based only on their individual interests and requirements.
These services are designed to provide assistance to a person in his or her own home to meet his or her physical, maintenance, and supportive needs. This may be hands-on assistance, or helping to provide cues for the person to complete a specific task.
These services are offered as both basic and enhanced, and provide general household supports that help ensure the person lives in a safe and healthy environment, while maximizing independence. Enhanced services are designed for more significant situations, where a higher level of support is needed. Services include cleaning, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and other basic home needs.
This service is focused on mentoring a person through a variety of independent living skills, which include supported money management, obtaining a driver’s license, learning about health and safety, social boundaries and other topics around basic independent living skills.
This service is provided on an hourly basis, providing support while a caregiver receives a period of relief to avoid caregiver burnout. This respite can be provided in the home of the person or in the community.
