Creating Avenues for Residential Empowerment

Homemaker Personal Care

Homemaker/Personal Care, often called HPC, supports a person to be more independent while meeting their daily living needs. Direct service providers help people with household chores and personal care, including things like:

  • Getting dressed and keeping clean
  • Making food
  • Managing money to pay household bills
  • Cleaning and doing laundry
  • Getting out and being a part of the community
  • Helping people to get to medical and dental appointments or other health care services

HPC also includes support that improves a person’s ability to express their opinions and choices.

Ohio Shared Living

Ohio Shared Living is often called OSL for short. It provides an option for someone with a developmental disability to get the support they need while living with a paid caregiver.

Caregivers make long-term commitments to sharing a home, helping with daily routines, and inviting someone with a developmental disability to be part of their family, resulting in lifelong relationships. OSL caregivers support people with developmental disabilities in a home setting, either the home of the live-in caregiver or the home of the person accessing services.

HPC Transportation

Transportation services may be available based on an understanding of a person’s needs discovered during an assessment, then listed in their individual service plan.

Whenever possible, family, friends, neighbors, or community agencies that provide transportation without charge should be used first.
