Person-Centered Support Services
We employ trained Direct Support Professionals to provide 24/7 protective oversight, training, and care under the direction of a Behavior Support Professional. All of our employees must pass a drug screening and submit to a full criminal background investigation, which is reviewed and approved by the WVCARES program through the West Virginia Office of the Inspector General prior to employment.
Each individuals medical needs will be assessed during admission, and a licensed Registered Nurse (RN) will evaluate needs and provided training and services. Specific nurse training areas may address medication, side effects, alternative choices, medical diagnosis and prognosis, proper lifting techniques, hygiene and daily living issues affecting health.
Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professionals
All training services will be monitored by our staff who meet the guidelines for credentialing under Medicaid Chapter 503.
