State Case Manager
We partner with our individuals to identify needs and goals. This often includes physical, emotional, spiritual, and environmental support.
Practical support includes medication
administration, household cleaning, food
preparation, transportation, hygiene, entertainment and leisure.
Our individuals enjoy choosing and designing their own living space, input in the household menu, daily schedule and leisure activities.
Our Behavior Specialist team provides support to challenging physical/emotional behaviors and are available to assist in crisis situations.
We start with a compassion perspective and a simplified process. Direct care staff provide essential input for plans and are empowered in their role to prevent and handle challenging behaviors.
Our Behavior Specialists work with the team and staff to understand the individual and the meaning behind their challenging behavior. Proactive support techniques provide and teach coping skills to decrease challenging behaviors.
Some personal goals that we assist with include: hygiene, finances, health services,
personal safety, self advocacy, relationships, transportation, dietary education, and home maintenance. Our support also includes entertainment and leisure activities based on personality and individual interests.
We strongly value and encourage the individuals in our care to engage in school, work, or volunteerism. This is a great avenue for community involvement and to develop autonomy and self-worth.
Cornerstone Valley believes in Community. We encourage our individuals' relationships with family, friends and community members and work to help them foster meaningful
relationships. We enjoy partnering with other organizations that help grant opportunities for our individuals; such as our local University, WOU.
