Our Purpose 

This facility is a well-maintained single family home, located in a quiet residential community. We are dedicated to helping individuals maximize their full potential in a compassionate, caring, and competent environment. We strive to make a positive difference in every life we touch by, promoting health, safety, fostering independence, and individualism. Hands at Home offers a continuum of care and services enabling us to meet the needs of individuals with a wide range of disabilities. We provide a family environment and a holistic approach to care that encourages integration into, rather than isolation, from the surrounding community.  

The staff of Hands at Home consists of experienced professionals that are committed to excellence. Employees are trained to foster a caring relationship with residents by exhibiting thoughtfulness, patience, and understanding.  We promote independence and growth in our residents by respecting each resident’s opinion, religious, and political preference. 

 

Our Process

Care

Wellness

Mindfulness

Our process begins with an initial assessment for each resident.  The resident’s needs and Hands at Home ability to meet those needs are considered prior to placement. We make every effort to house a compatible mix of satisfied residents. After the initial assessment, we then move to the next step, which is developing an individualized plan of care.  The program manager updates the plan of care regularly with resident’s updates and progress.  Our goal is to meet the needs of each resident and to adapt a plan of action as needed.
