Individualized services designed to

build skills and foster independence.

COMMUNITY HABILITATION

Designed with the person centered approach in mind, the Habilitation Services Department provides one-on-one staffing supports to children and adults. Services provide the opportunity to learn a variety of skills that foster independence, promote social growth, and support the desired outcomes identified by the individual. In general, the services assist individuals in maximizing their independence in various areas of their life. Although these services may be provided where a person lives, the emphasis will be to utilize various community locations for service provision.

 

 

HOURLY RESPITE

Hourly respite services provide relief to individuals who are responsible for the primary care and support of individuals with disabilities. Families utilize this service to ensure the needs of their loved ones are met while tending to other obligations. Many individuals who receive this service often have opportunities to participate in fun recreation and social activities within the community.

 

RESPITE RETREAT GROUPS

The Respite Retreat Groups meet periodically at CVI. The individuals of these groups are then provided with various recreational opportunities throughout the North Country. Trips are often planned for sporting events, festivals, and concerts to such places as Burlington and Lake Placid.
