Participant Directed and Managed Services

Participant Directed(formerly “Family Directed Services”)

For families who feel comfortable living independently while also receiving the supports they need, Participant Directed and Managed Services (PDMS) gives clients and their loved ones the opportunity to develop and manage their own services.  Families work collaboratively with The Moore Center to best meet the needs of the individual while maintaining the requirements of the federal guidelines.

Participant Directed and Managed Services offers four service models:

• In Home Supports

• Participant Directed and Managed Services

• Personal Care Services

• Community Support Services/Independent Living Supports

In Home Supports:

For children that live at home with their family and are supported on the HIS waiver, we offer the following services:

Personal care: which includes assistance and skills training with basic daily living skills, such as communication, socialization, health and personal safety, and physical functioning.

Case Management: aids in developing and monitoring service plans

Consultative Services: which may include evaluation, training, mentoring and special instruction to improve the ability of the service provider, family or other care-givers to understand and support the individual’s developmental, functional, communication, socialization and health and behavioral needs.

Respite services: Short tem temporary relief from care taking responsibilities for the family.
