Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities – MR/DD
The principles of Self Determination are the foundation upon which Nina’s Health Care Services, LLC establishes policies, procedures and support opportunities for eligible children and adults. The Agency has organized its Support Services across four developmental stages:
- Early Intervention
- Family Support
- Transitions Supports
- Adult supports
The transition between each support stage is an important milestone in the development of each person. They mark a significant change in that is responsible to provide services and how services are delivered. In each stage the services are coordinated and managed by a professional referred to as a Support Administrator, who is the single point of contact for the client or their family. Support Administrators help the client, their family, and their team to navigate available resources and service delivery.
Our support system focuses on issues of informed consent, dignity of risk, health and safety skills, increasing independence, and ability to speak and decide for one ’s self. Supports assist youth leaving the structure and services of the school system to develop skills needed to take on adult responsibilities such as work, adult education and daily living skills. Adult supports work to maximize available resources and developing opportunities for adults to gain self-dependence, participate in their community and live as independently as possible in their own home. Our Supports also address the needs of adults with disabilities growing older with more healthcare needs to maintain independence and the skills they have developed.
