Tailored Residential Services to Meet Personal Needs and Desires
Individuals receiving residential services work with their team members to develop an individual plan, which identifies goals and objectives that focus on personal needs and desires. Teams consist of various relevant professionals, service providers, family, friends and anyone else the individual chooses to include. Together, the individual and the team evaluate all facets of life—from medical to recreational needs—and identify methods to achieve optimum health.
Individuals are assisted and encouraged to do as much for themselves as possible, and each home reflects the personalities of those who live there. Unified Community Connections doesn’t merely provide housing, we provide the supports necessary to enable the individuals to become more productive members of their community.
Licensed and Inspected Homes in Maryland for Adults with Disabilities
All homes operated by Unified Community Connections are inspected and licensed by Maryland’s Office of Health Care Quality. Representatives of the Developmental Disabilities Administration conduct additional announced and unannounced inspections.
How Our Residential Services Make a Difference
Richard Violet Receives MACS Achievement Award
Maybe it’s his name that destined him to have a passion for flowers and plants, but, whatever it is, Richard Violet just loves to grow things. Nominated by Unified Community Connections to receive the Maryland Association of Community Services (MACS) Achievement Award, Richard was recognized for his helpfulness, friendly disposition and determination to do things on his own. One of those things was to participate in our summer yard sale. In preparation, he turned part of his house in Hagerstown into a garden, where he painted flower pots and collected antique cups and saucers in which he planted seeds and grew vines and flowers so he could sell them at the yard sale. He found he enjoyed gardening so much that he kept and cared for the plants that didn’t sell and turned to collecting and crushing soda cans for extra money instead. Congratulations to Richard for never being afraid to try something new!
