Explore services for your loved one with disabilities
If you’re caring for an adult child or another loved one with a disability, no matter their age, you likely worry about them a lot. What will happen to them if something happens to you? What if their needs become too great for you to continue caring for them? How can you help them live their most fulfilling life?
If questions like these keep you up at night, empowerline can help. We can help you navigate Georgia’s services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and services for people with physical disabilities.
Support for employment and community integration
Employment is not only important for financial self-sufficiency but for maximizing independence and giving individuals a sense of purpose. For individuals with IDD, empowerline can help connect you to services that prepare individuals for work or help people acquire and maintain employment. We can also connect you to community activities.
Support for daily living
Whether staying at a family home or living in a residential setting, empowerline can help connect you to options to support your loved one’s daily living needs. Community living support provides supervision and support for people to successfully live in their family homes or other residential settings.
- Explore the types of assistive technology that can help maximize independence and function.
- Respite services provide temporary support services for your loved one allowing you to tackle your personal to-dos or take a much needed break.
- Group homes (or “community living arrangements”) licensed for up to 4 individuals with IDD provide the necessary support to help with eating, toileting, socialization, grooming, bathing, housekeeping, transportation, etc., and empowerline can help connect you with one.
Support for health care needs
Empowerline can link you to medical supplies and equipment, therapy services (including occupational, physical, and speech and language therapies), or an array of other health care services.
Support for the caregiver
In order for a you as a caregiver to provide care for a loved one, you also need to make sure you are taking care of yourself. Empowerline can help connect you to resources for caregivers.
Empowerline also partners with the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging (BRI) and Rosalynn Carter Caregiving Institute to provide a service called BRI Care Consultation sheet to caregivers of individuals living with dementia.
