In Home Support Program
WHO WE ARE

The In Home Support Program is a dynamic program that provides individual supports for people with intellectual disabilities living in the counties of Goochland, Powhatan and Hanover. Services are innovative, flexible and tailored to the needs of the individual. We are a joint partnership between Goochland-Powhatan Community Services and Hanover Community Services.

WHAT WE DO

We provide one on one service to help individuals and their families so that the individuals to whom we provide services can stay in their own home rather than go to an institution or a more restrictive environment. The service each person receives is based on their needs, the number of hours approved by Medicaid and goals agreed on by the individual and their family. Our focus is to train individuals to be as independent as possible so that they can live as independently as possible. Some of the things we do fall into the following categories:

  • Personal Care: we help individuals with bathing, tooth brushing, toileting, eating, hair care, etc
  • Community Skills: we take people into the community to provide new experiences, build relationships in the community and be a part of the community at large through every day experiences and volunteer opportunities.
  • Leisure Skills: We help people develop their interests and hobbies.
  • Activities of Daily Living: this covers anything you would do in a day, for example, grocery shopping, housekeeping, cooking, laundry.
  • Health Skills: we provide education around a healthy lifestyle to include diet, exercise, understanding medication, different aspects of a persons physical condition, stress and anger management, etc.
  • Social Skills: through training goals, we encourage individuals to interact in their community so that they can see and learn by example appropriate ways to interact and socialize with others.


WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR SERVICES?

Anyone who is over the age of 6, has a primary diagnosis of intellectual disabilities and lives in Hanover, Goochland or Powhatan County is eligible to receive services. Children under age 6 with significant delays may also qualify. Our Program is funded through the Medicaid Waiver.
