Direct Care Providers will assist individuals in acquiring, retaining, and improving the self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills necessary to reside successfully in both home and community based settings. This service includes the provision of training in independent living and behavioral management. Our habilitation staff at E and C Services will have specific methodologies and goals, agreed upon by the individuals and the consumer’s family, that will be the focus of their habilitation sessions. The DCP will aim to empower their consumer to reach these goals and help them gain a sense of success and pride in their increasing independence.
