In-Home Supports

There are a number of different options for families who wish to obtain services directly in their homes or in the community rather than through a traditional day program.

Regardless of the option you have chosen, Pillar Care Continuum can be your partner, support and advocate in securing the best possible services for your loved one. We have specialized in serving consumers with special needs, including physical disabilities, severe or multiple disabilities, special medical needs or challenging behaviors. We also are skilled in providing services to individuals who need less intensive support.

Services
We provide an array of services including, but not limited to, the following:
  • Assistance with activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, toileting, feeding, etc.)
  • Recreation activities outside the home, including weekends, after school/after work
  • Short term in-home respite
  • Transportation
  • Medical management
  • Companionship in the community
  • Services for challenging behaviors
  • Volunteer and employment supports
  • Skill development

Pillar Care can also tailor a program to meet specific requests. If you would like to participate in a particular activity that is not listed above, please call us if you are interested in something you do not see here.

Staff

Working with Pillar Care Continuum ensures you will have a staff member who meets our agency’s rigorous standards and is receiving ongoing monitoring, training and support. Our staff:

  • have undergone fingerprinting as well as a thorough background check
  • have a safe driving record and must pass an internal driver’s training course
  • are monitored on an ongoing basis by a program director
  • receive regular agency trainings to ensure their skills and knowledge remain on par with agency standards
Approach to Choice
We encourage our participants to make choices to the best of their ability in consultation with their guardians, and we respect their preferences. Our role is to help individuals and caregivers understand and support their decisions.
