How do I determine which type of support services I need?
Once eligibility is determined, your Community Services Worker (CSW) and your support network will discuss the different support programs that are available, and what your current support needs include to ensure services provided are person centered. This could include different residential support options, Day Services and / or Supported Employment.
What is “Person Centered Planning” and “Person Centered Opportunities”?
Any Person Centered Supports, Opportunities, and Planning are done with the individual and their support network. This can include family members, friends, and paid support personnel that know the individual very well. They know what is important to the person, and what is important for the person’s health, safety and well-being, both physically, mentally and emotionally.
The individual and their support network work to identify goals and dreams, and work together to identify appropriate steps and supports required to help that person realize those dreams.
