Adult Day Support & HPC

Ability Works strives to create a world where all people with disabilities are welcome and fully included in valued roles wherever they go, whether a school, workplace, volunteer group, home or any other part of the community.

Community integration is designed to help individuals to optimize their personal, social, and vocational competencies to live successfully in the community. Individuals served are active partners in determining the activities they desire to participate in.

ADULT DAY SUPPORT 

Adult Day Support helps a person build connections in their community. With this service, people can learn about the following:

  • How to meet and talk with new people

  • What activities are in their community

  • How to get to places independently

  • What jobs are available in their area

While taking part in Adult Day Support services, a person can also have help with personal care, such as going to the restroom, eating meals, and taking medication.

“It is so important to enable people to use their Abilities and TALENTS to support themselves.”

Homemaker Personal Care

Homemaker/Personal Care, often called HPC, supports a person to be more independent while meeting their daily living needs. Direct service providers help people with household chores and personal care, including things like:

  • Getting dressed and keeping clean

  • Planning menus, shopping, and preparing meals

  • Managing money to pay household bills

  • Cleaning and doing laundry

  • Getting out and being a part of the community and participating in recreational activities

  • Assisting with scheduling and attending appointments


HPC also includes support that improves a person’s ability to express their opinions and choices.

“There is no greater disability in society, than the inability to see a person as more.”

- Robert M. Hensel
