OPTIONS northwest Community Services presently provides personal and residential support for adults living with a developmental disability. Using the values of Person Directed Planning and OPTIONS’ Mission, Vision and Philosophy, Direct Support Professionals build on a person’s goals, interests and support network to assist them to live as successfully as possible within the community and to support their full inclusion in all aspects of society. We recognize that everyone we support is unique with distinct needs and believe that everyone has the right to make their own choices to ensure they have an active role in identifying and choosing the supports they require.
Persons accessing our services receive supports that are designed to meet their individual needs and the Direct Support Professionals providing support receive specialized training, as required, by qualified professionals. The type and duration of support provided is determined by the individuals’ needs as articulated in their personal plans.
We provide supportive housing in our community through various models one being group living residences with 24 hours of support. In addition to a developmental disability, persons receiving 24-hour support may also have significant medical or behavioural support needs.
