The Community Services Department provides several community and home based programs and services to children and adults with developmental disabilities.
A person-centered, outcome-driven service provided in the home and community, which provides support and assistance to individuals to increase independence. Various goals are chosen and implemented by the individual with staff support, including shopping for and preparing meals, budgeting, and completing household chores. Please note that we also provide collegiate supports when appropriate for individuals pursuing higher education. These supports include attending class with the individual, taking notes, and organizational/time management skills.
Hourly Respite Services
Our Respite programs are designed to assist and provide relief to families and caregivers members who are responsible for the primary care and support of individuals with developmental disabilities. There are 3 different types of non-certified respite services: In Home Respite, Recreation Respite, and Wrap Around Respite.
- In Home Respite: In Home Respite service is provided in the individual’s home for approximately 2-4 hours per week. Trained, trusted staff comes to the home to meet the needs of the individual and engage the individual in preferred activities. Caregivers have the opportunity to meet staff prior to starting service.
- Recreation Respite: Recreation Respite provides opportunities for individuals with disabilities to develop lifetime recreation skills and interests. What makes CP Rochester unique is that most of our programs and events take place in the community. We offer opportunities for individual and group interaction, as well as programs which incorporate instruction and skill development such as individual swimming lessons, fitness, and social opportunities.
