GROUP DAY HABILITATION
Prospect Center began its first Day Habilitation program in September 2005. This program allows individuals with developmental disabilities to foster their creativity, flexibility and individuality. The program’s vision is to offer a highly individualized, consumer-driven health care delivery program which meets the needs of the individuals we serve and their families.
To meet the needs of individuals who express an interest in living more independently in the community, Prospect Center provides Individualized Residential Alternatives (IRAs) or group homes. These homes are staffed on a 24-hour basis by trained individuals who provide rehabilitative and supervisory services to residents in a warm home setting.
Community Habilitation is a direct service to the individual so that he/she can increase skills in the area of independence, integration, individualization, and productivity. The goal of this program is to normalize and enhance home and community life for individuals with developmental disabilities.
RESPITE – HOME BASED
One of the realties for many families is that parents need to work or may just need a break. We acknowledge that finding child care that is safe, affordable and accessible is a major stressor for family systems. This program has a dual function: respite for working families and care serving individuals for whom “typical” child and daycare are not available due to the individual’s developmental disability.
