LIVING SUPPORTS - FAMILY LIVING PROVIDER
Living Supports - Family Living Services provides a natural environment with a family/home for the support and nurturing of an individual, which emphasizes activities within our community. These supports are provided while integrating with other family members, and when appropriate, involvement in a work and/or educational plan during the day. This service may be in one’s own home or that of another family approved by the Medicaid Waiver and Cornucopia, Inc. Family Living Providers are responsible for implementing an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) for the individual served. There are mandatory state and agency trainings required to assist in the implementation of the person’s specific goals and objectives.
Please contact us with questions or for more information on how to enroll in the Family Living Provider program by using our Email form, Recipient - General Inquiry.
CUSTOMIZED COMMUNITY SUPPORTS
One of the core programs at Cornucopia is our Customized Community Supports. This program provides socialization and interaction with others to reduce isolation and improve functional ability. Program Goals include improving our client’s health and well being, enhancing life and work skills, encouraging regular moderate exercise, and building relationships. We encourage participation in outside activities and strive to assist the individual to develop natural supports within the community. Services include:

Our Community Access service provides an alternative or parallel service to our Customized Community Supports program. This service is specifically intended to address the individual’s independence, long-term vision, and goals. Community Access service is also designed to: promote maximum participation in community life, support individuals in achieving their personal goals, and promote self-advocacy. This is done through focused teaching of adaptive, self-help, and/or socialization skills. Community Access service is designed to support individual development of skills that may lead to an eventual reduction of/or independence from specialized supports.
