Home and Community Supports — Fraser has a number of services that provide in-home family support, respite care and personal support for adolescents and adults who want to continue living at home and be more involved in their community.
In-Home Family Support — a licensed habilitative service provided in a person's home and in the community that increases and maintains a person's physical, intellectual, emotional and social functioning. Fraser staff not only provide services to the person with special needs, but can also train family members to increase their capabilities to care for that person. Individual program and behavior support plans are developed following a thorough assessment of the person's strengths and needs. Targeted goals are developed and measured based on a collaborative team process.
Respite Care — In-home service that provides short-term relief for primary caregivers of people with special needs. The program increases family well-being, prevents maltreatment, and prevents out of home placement. Services are provided on an hourly, daily or weekend schedule, depending on need and service authorization.
Connect For Rec — Activity group that allows for participants to achieve increased independence, productivity, and inclusion in the community through recreation in a fun, interactive group setting. This program is tailored to meet the unique needs of participants while getting together at various community locations.
Personal Support — Provides supervision and assistance in the person's home or in the community to increase independence, productivity and inclusion in the community. Personal Support is a non-medical, non-habilitative service recommended when desired outcomes do not require skill training.
Support Planning — includes an individualized assessment of client and family needs, identification of resources, facilitation of communication with other agencies, and assistance in gaining access to services and support. Support is also provided to families managing their own waivers under the Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS) option.
Person-Centered Planning — A trained Fraser professional creates a plan to capture what is important to a person receiving services in order to maintain or improve his/her quality of life.
Partnership Program — support services identified in a person-centered plan that are not traditionally covered by county or state funding, and often provided by unpaid family caregivers (typically parents or adult siblings). Services may be temporary, intermittent or ongoing.
