- Respite (for children and adults) - This service is designed to give a person’s primary caretaker a break from their caretaker responsibilities. This can be provided in the home of the persons served or in the home of the respite provider.
These services enable individuals with a variety of behavior disorders, disabilities and mental illnesses to participate in the community with the highest possible degree of personal autonomy. These services are person centered and include opportunities to engage in community life and receive services in the community to the same degree as individuals who do not receive services.
The goal of the services listed is to teach basic living skills through naturally occurring interactions so that individuals receiving these services can increase their independence and skill set. In addition to our positive interaction style, individuals have formal goals in a proactive treatment plan. This treatment plan is developed by the individual and their team and addresses areas that the individual has identified as important to them.
Naturally occurring teaching opportunities include, but are not limited to; cooking, cleaning, laundry, budgeting, medication management, managing appointments, and socialization. In all of these services, everyone that chooses may participate in employment or another day program throughout the week. Hope Haven provides these services in many counties throughout Northwest Iowa and Southwest Minnesota.
