Individual SupportsDay and Residential Services
Individual Supports provides assistance to those who live in their own homes but need some support in order to do so. This service is for those who do not require 24-hour support. BAMSI staff meets with persons served in their own homes and provides assistance with activities and tasks such as managing finances, medical issues, self-administration of medication, meal planning and preparation, shopping, travel training, getting along with neighbors, and making good choices. Staff members meet with individuals for as few as two or as many as 30 hours per week, depending upon the needs of the individual served. Staff can also provide advocacy as needed. This program serves approximately 25 individuals annually.
Eligibility for Individual Supports is determined by the Department of Developmental Services (DDS). For more information, call BAMSI’s Day and Residential Services Administration Office at 508-941-0144.
