What is a Family Model Provider?
Think about all of the little things you need to do each day: get out of bed, take a shower, brush your teeth, get dressed, and get something to eat. All these activities must be done, and it’s not even 10:00 am. These tasks seem so simple, but we take them for granted every day.
Completing many of these tasks involves many steps. For example, getting up and out of bed requires you to roll over on your side, swing your leg over on the edge of the bed, jump out of bed, place your feet on the floor, and stand. See, look at all those steps. You haven’t even made it to the bathroom to brush your teeth yet!
For many people, losing the ability to do their daily tasks can make them feel frustrated, hopeless, and helpless. This is where AdvanceCare swoops in to save the day. Our Family Model Professionals are there to support you or a loved one with daily living skills so that you can have a better quality of life.
A Family Model Provider opens their home and their heart by providing care to adults with physical, intellectual, and developmental disabilities in a family home setting, as opposed to individuals living in an institutional setting.
