Our programs are built with the needs of each individual and their families at the forefront.
Our well-trained, experienced team manages individualized programs that provide a stable, supportive environment for our residents.
Supportive Independent Living
Our supportive independent living programs provide support for individuals who live on their own. Much like the family support program, the focus is on independent living and community integration.
In this program, the residence is provided by Momentum. One to three residents live in each home, and developmental support workers are present 24/7. These are longer term arrangements that focus on individual development and community integration.
We use an Adult Needs and Strengths Assessment (ANSA) and the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths assessment (CANS) to assist in: determining the level of care needed, planning service delivery, facilitating quality planning initiatives, and monitoring the outcomes of our service offerings. Our strengths-based approach to care planning promotes growth and development by setting realistic, attainable goals for the individual. These goals are reviewed regularly and revised as necessary.
Our team uses positive behavioral support strategies to guide the behaviors of our residents. Where necessary, we work with Behavioral Management Specialists provided via the Department of Health and Community Services Intervention Services Program and follow Behavioral Support Plan strategies put into place. Our care team receives specialized training in working with individuals with developmental disabilities and identifying the symptoms of mental illness from a third-party certified online learning platform, Relias Learning. Each team member is also required to maintain certification in CPI’s Non-Violent Crisis Intervention training program, as well as Emergency First Aid.
At Momentum, we are always looking for ways to improve our offerings. That’s why we’ve invested in specialized outcome monitoring software, ShareVision, to help ensure secure management of our residents’ data. This information management software enables us to measure the progress of each individual through goal reporting capabilities and monitor incident reporting via real-time incident notifications.
