Case Management is the “key” through which all agency services are obtained. OCDSNB Case Managers assist families and consumers in obtaining community resources and supports to maximize independence. OCDSNB believes in “family first”. Through assessments and the development of a support plan, the Case Manager assists in maximizing consumer choice and satisfaction. If a consumer requires greater supports such as residential services, the Case Manager guides the family through that service delivery system as well.
Services offered through Family Support Services include:
OCDSNBs Early Intervention program designed to teach family members to work with their children to stimulate developmental skills. The Early Interventionist assists in developing goals and locating needed therapies and supports. Services are provided to children from birth to six years of age.
Offers financial assistance to families who need short-term care for their loved one. Families may choose a Board-certified respite caregiver or one of their own. Respite is accessed through the person’s Early Interventionist or Case Manager. Funding is limited.
Families are given the opportunity to choose a summer activity that will most benefit their school-aged family member. Financial Support, when available, is offered for summer services.
Financial assistance may be available to directly benefit people with disabilities allowing them to remain in their home.
