Services We Offer|
Residential Group Homes
While we know that living with family is best, there comes a time when the family needs
additional help with the daily care of a loved one, or when that person is interested in
getting their own space. We encourage you to consider having your family member
receive residential living services via an AIRES group home. An AIRES group home is so
much more than a residential facility with staff — it’s a home that provides loving,
compassionate care. We pride ourselves on providing a clean, well decorated
environment that is warm and cheerful, that feels like our own homes.
In coordination with the ISP Team and Support Coordinator, we determine the amount of
daily support required to meet the behavioral, medical, social, and developmental needs
of the person. We’ll create with you a plan to help your family member continue to grow
and develop as a person. We hope you’ll agree that AIRES is the next best thing
to home. We invite you to come tour any one of our homes to see why so many people are
happy to call AIRES home.
Independent Living Arrangements
We strongly believe that people with disabilities should live as self-sufficiently as
possible, and our Independent Living Arrangements Service is one avenue towards that
goal. For those who need some assistance with their housing, but do not require the
type of constant support offered in a group home, we offer independent living arrangements.
We help the person being served to find their own home or apartment, and provide any
additional help they may need to live on their own. We work with everyone involved to
make sure that the situation makes sense and can be successful. This service is a great
way to help the person with disabilities achieve their goal of independence, and make that
transition from living at home to living on their own. Our trained staff will help the family
explore the issues and concerns of living on their own, and will help find realistic
A good day program should offer people with disabilities lots of choices and opportunities
that meet their needs for meaningful activity. It should be a place where your family
member is able to continue to grow and be challenged after they have aged-out of the school
system. AIRES day programs are not daycare facilities. Instead, AIRES day programs are
busy, exciting places that are designed to provide mental, physical, and emotional
stimulation and developmental supports. The people attending our day programs are
actively engaged and participate in all kinds of activities and therapies. We offer arts
and crafts, sensory stimulation, agricultural-horticultural therapy, animal assisted
therapies, and computers and technical skill development — there are plenty of choices! We
invite you to come tour any one of our day programs to see why so many people love attending
an AIRES day program.
AIRES can help with the transition from school and day program activity into successful
job placement. Vocational rehabilitation is appropriate for people with disabilities
who are interested in learning job skills and obtaining employment in the workforce.
We work with the person and their support team to create a realistic developmental plan
that carefully considers their abilities and interests, with a focus on helping them
be successful in their vocational journey. AIRES prides itself on its ability and
determination to help people find meaningful employment in the community. When
appropriate, AIRES focuses on developing work opportunities that are not in
a sheltered workshop. We can help you determine if vocational rehabilitation is a
viable option and get the process started. Call us today!
In-Home Care (a.k.a. Home & Community Based Services)
Sometimes all the support you need is occasional help in your own home — you need some
respite, help with personal care, or in-home habilitation support. And, perhaps most
importantly, you need support that is reliable and dependable. That’s why so many
families come to AIRES for help with in-home care — we know how important it is that
your caregiver be reliable, as well as compassionate and caring. Our Home & Community
Based Services will help you determine what supports are available to you and find a
caregiver who will provide the services. Discover what we can do for you by calling
us today — you’ll be glad you did.
While most of the people who come to AIRES need services for themselves or for a family
member, there are loving families who are interested in caring for a child or adult with
a disability. If you want to share your love and add to your family, you can become a
Child Developmental Home (CDH) or Adult Developmental Home (ADH) family. We’ll take
you through the licensing process and help you learn about becoming a foster family.
You’ll discover the great rewards that come from caring for a person with a disability.
AIRES provides families the on-going training and support to help you be successful.
We’ll help you in the selection process to help you find the right special person to
bring into your family. We offer respite services to help you fulfill your personal
tasks and responsibilities. If you think that this is what you have been looking for,
then meet with us today to learn about this exciting opportunity.
