PSL Services/STRIVE provides an in-home support program for individuals with intellectual disabilities that enhances our participants’ independent living skills.

Through PSL Services/STRIVE’s Home Support Program, participants will have the opportunity to work on goals to increase their independence in their home in the following areas:

  • Apartment safety and maintenance
  • Self-care (including assistance with personal hygiene)
  • Organizing and cleaning
  • Laundry
  • Meal planning
  • Grocery shopping
  • Cooking and meal preparation
  • Food storage and food safety
  • Budgeting and banking
  • Time-management
  • Mail correspondence

Participants will receive staff support with health maintenance and staff will model a healthy lifestyle. Staff will support participants in identifying medical needs, assist in communicating information to a medical professional; assist in interpreting information from a professional; and support in following up with medical direction and health maintenance recommendations.

In Home Support, participants will receive staff support with managing safe and responsible behavior in order to strengthen and increase their natural supports.

PSL Services/STRIVE offers virtual groups on Tuesdays at 10am and Wednesdays at 3pm for all home support participants.

PSL Services/STRIVE offers in-person home support shifts 9am-1pm & 1pm-5pm, Monday through Friday.
