Support Services are programs of Home and Community Options that teach and support individuals who live on their own. The individuals receiving support may need guidance and counseling with daily living skills, such as: money management, home maintenance, health and nutrition, food preparation, transportation, socialization, community safety, and personal hygiene.
Support Services may also be designed to support individuals with disabilities that are living with their families or other caregivers. Depending on the needs of the individual, services can vary from daily support to a few hours per month.
Respite Care is also available which gives primary caregivers relief from the care demands of their loved one with a developmental disability. Staff can provide respite care in the person’s home, or at one of HCO’s two Family Resource Homes. HCO’s resource homes are licensed and maintained to provide services to children and young adults who need respite care, skills training, or social interaction opportunities in order to learn and grow in their independence. Services at a resource home are designed to maximize community integration and assist family caregivers in maintaining a good quality of life for the entire family.
