The center piece of Fayette Resources, Inc., is the NADD accredited residential program.Consumers with developmental disabilities and/or mental health conditions live in homes with others who have similar interests and abilities, under the care of specialty trained support staff. These homes are often referred to as Community Living.
The primary goals of the Fayette Resources program include, but are not limited to:
• Assisting consumers to live successfully and independently in the community
• To develop life skills that maximize opportunities to access the community
• And to increase their ability to cope and manage with challenging life events
Caring well-trained staff will work with each consumer to establish individualized routines that can be applied in everyday living that encourages successful involvement in the local community. These individual life activities may include organized time for work, leisure activities, activities of daily living and vacations. Individualized teaching is an integral part of our residential services. Over time, consumers learn new skills that are outlined in their Individual Support Plan (ISP) in the form of personalized outcomes. The consumer’s ISP is developed by the consumer and a team of professionals that work with and provide support for the consumer. The ISP is a tool used by the team and the consumer to organize the team’s efforts and to improve the consumer’s everyday life and encourage them to achieve the highest level of independence.
Areas of concentration may include:
• Self Care
• social and personal development
• intellectual and communication skills
• money management
• leisure and recreational
• community awareness, and mobility
