Resources for the Community
In addition to the services and supports that we provide to the developmentally disabled and elderly consumers we regularly serve, AIRES also provides services to consumers served by other service providers and the community in general. For consumers who are either new to the system or need additional help designing a successful Individual Support Plan, AIRES has certified Person Centered Planning Specialists who can help. Our Person Centered Planning Specialists will work with the whole ISP team to create a plan that is: 1) person centered, 2) realistic, and 3) optimistic. Person Centered Planning is a great way to realize dreams and improve quality of life. Click here for information about our Person Centered Planning services.
