Samaritas Services for Persons with Disabilities
We connect families with the resources they need to help their loved ones lead lives full of purpose and self-determination. We empower people with disabilities to have a voice in their own care and become involved members of their communities. We transform lives through person centered care, individualized support and deep, meaningful connections with caregivers.
Our community-based residential programs are tailored to fit the needs of each person who calls them home-from those requiring 24/7 care or to individuals who are more independent.
We serve individuals with developmental / intellectual disabilities (DD /ID) including individuals with autism, down syndrome, mental illness and other DD /ID diagnoses. This support is achieved by providing a licensed home and care for individuals or by providing community living support services in a person’s own home. We have multiple locations throughout the state where we are able to arrange these services and supports.
We also assist individuals in maintaining independence within their own homes. By working with clients on a daily or weekly basis, we have the ability to see first-hand when they have physical/emotional/ mental deterioration and address the issues so independence isn't threatened. We also work on skill-building with clients to improve ADLs, socialization, communication, and community skills. We integrate our clients into local community activities in order to be among other community members and participate in activities of their choosing.
