Serving Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
We provide services throughout the State of Maine for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities receiving MaineCare through the Section 21 and 29 Waivers. Services include Shared Living, Community Support Services and In-Home Support Services.
Shared Living Services
Our Shared Living Services offer individuals the choice to live in their home and community, with their family or in an alternative living residence. Through these services, Shared Living providers work directly with the Individuals in achieving their independence desires and goals.
Community Support Services
Our Community Support Services provide opportunities for individuals to participate in their local communities. We create individualized schedules of activities for each person based on their abilities and interests. With support from our DSP’s, individuals have the opportunity to learn about community resources, participate in specialized classes, volunteer and/or work in their community.
In-Home Support Services
Our In-Home Support Services allow opportunities for individuals to maintain and develop skills that support health and well-being. These home based services focus on personal development and support with daily living skills such as self-care, cooking and household management.
