Specialized Services and Supports

Medical Support Unit (MSU)

ENCOR provides short and long term medically supervised residential services for children, adolescents and adults at MSU.  Services can include respite for families who have a medical need that requires monitoring by a nurse.  Most individuals receive long term care at this location.

Registered Nurse Support

In addition to MSU, Registered Nurses are available 24 hours for telephone consultation for individuals in residential or vocational services.  The nurses provide support to people with on-going medical needs.

Respite

This service provides support to families, which enables them to keep their family member with a developmental disability at home.  Respite is important because it provides an opportunity to attend to a family crisis or “take a break” from the day to day care of their disabled family member.  Respite care is provided in an agency licensed residence or in the private home of a provider who has been trained by the agency.

Home Based

Home based services provide specialized guidance and support to the individual in their home.   Staff offer guidance and support for a specified number of hours per week until the intervention is no longer necessary.

Behavior Management

ENCOR Behavior Specialists consult with individuals and their team members in all settings where the individual is being served.  They provide ongoing assistance with assessing the communicative function of problem behavior and aide in the development of individualized positive behavior support strategies.  Behavior Specialists try to balance what is important to the individual with what is important for the individual to achieve their desired outcomes.
