Home based (Individual) Support for Adults 21+
The support they need, in the comfort of home
What is home-based support?
Along with making sure your loved one can interact with the world outside their door, we also make sure they’re able to live comfortably in their home with our home-based support program, also known as individual supports.
How this service works will depend on the needs of your loved one. Your Direct Support Person, or DSP, will work with you to implement a support plan that caters to your loved one’s needs and goals, which can include:
The gift of friendship
Beyond caring for your loved one’s needs, your DSP will also help cultivate a stronger sense of confidence, friendship, and independence.
Whether we match you with a DSP who is the best fit for your loved one, or you get a trusted family member or caregiver—or even yourself—approved as a DSP, we’re here to make the process as smooth as possible.
“A great match for our son—he really gets him”
“The process was pretty easy. We feel lucky that we got a great match for our son, someone that definitely gets him. You can tell they screen their workers and really, really care.”
– Brendan’s mom, a Teamcare NJ Client
It’s easy to get started
We know you have a lot on your plate, so we make the process easy, convenient, and hassle-free.
We learn about your loved one
We find the perfect match
Taking your loved one’s needs, goals, personality and preferences into account, we’ll comb through all of our personnel files to determine the best match.
We carefully vet each candidate
We conduct a thorough vetting process (including interviews, fingerprinting, drug testing, skill evaluations and reference checks) to ensure highly-qualified staff that checks everyone’s boxes.
Meet and greet with your DSP
It’s not all systems ago until you feel totally comfortable. You and your loved one meet our handpicked choice to ensure that you really are that perfect match!
Ongoing quality assurance
Once your DSP starts providing care, we check in with you and your DSP regularly to assess progress and ensure that your goals and expectations are being met.
We're on your team. More importantly, we act like it
If you ever have questions, need a change of schedule or an issue arises with your DSP, we will problem solve until everything is smoothly sorted.
