Developmental Disabilities

Group Home Habilitation

We focus on providing Group Home settings that are “home-like” and comfortable while still providing necessary training and habilitation services. Our desire is to help each member acquire the skills and knowledge needed to actively participate in the community as much as he or she chooses.  Our goal is to assist the member in developing a vision of his or her future and, then, assist in achieving that vision of the future.

Each group home provides 24 hour care, 7 days a week to ensure the health and safety of each member.  We join with the member and his or her family to conduct an assessment to determine the training needs of the member through the development of an Individual Service Plan (ISP).  Each formal objective in the ISP will have a specific training plan which specifies the method of instruction, materials utilized and schedule of training.  The training plan will also include the means for measuring the individual’s progress toward achieving established training objectives.

Group home staffs are trained to provide a broad array of services to promote physical, emotional and mental well being of each member.  Our trained residential staff assist in the following areas:  Medical and counseling appointments, medication management, ISP and Behavior Treatment Plan (BTP) goal achievement, transportation as outlined by the ISP, cultural diversity, personal care assistance, and social skills and problem solving skill development.

A major focus of the program is the development and implementation of a behavior treatment plan to address what are often intense behavioral challenges.  An individualized BTP, which is developed by Arizona Health Care and adopted by the ISP team, is the key to developing the skills the member needs to attain the future that the member and his or her family envision.  Nothing makes us happier or more proud than to see the members we serve make progress on the course that they have laid out for themselves.
