A team of nurses and clinical staff are available as a resource to individuals to promote personal health and wellness. A nurse is assigned to work with health support specialists in coordinating and addressing needs in ways that promote a partnership with an individual and compliment an enriched lifestyle and encourge personal responsibility. The clinical team includes social work, speech pathology, occupational and physical therapy, nutrition, and behavioral health specialists. The efforts of this team are supported by consulting psychologists and a physician. The goal is to proactively address health needs while avoiding unnecessary hospitalizations and high cost medical interventions when not necessary.
Our Commitment to Wellness
Unlike tradtional healthcare approaches, our agency has pursued a path towards personal wellness for people we support and our workforce. The wellness program is actualized within each person's plan of services, as well as through the agency's Wellness Acadamy. The Wellness Acadamy is a year long learning experience for people we support that introduces participants to the link between personal wellness and community life. For our workforce, our Human Resource Department has established a routine calendar of wellness activities throughout the year.
