In the next decade, more than 71 million Americans will be 65 years of age and older. With the increasing numbers of older persons and persons with lifelong disabilities living longer, we will see a broader demand for home and community-based services. These services will help manage daily living activities that may be limited as a result of acute or chronic conditions and will keep people integrated in their communities.
Care Management Services
This program is the result of a partnership with My Choice Family Care. Responsibilities include monitoring the long term care needs for individuals with developmental disabilities, frail elders, individuals with brain injuries, dementia, persistent mental illness and those with terminal diagnoses who qualify for support service in Milwaukee County. The desired outcome is to coordinate services that will support a person to live independently in the community.
Corporate Guardianship Services
Our Corporate Guardianship programs provide critical support to people who are aging or have a disability that impairs their ability to make informed decisions about their life and welfare. This service is provided throughout our six county service area.
Adult Day Services
Our Adult Day Service Centers supports adults with severe cognitive and physical disabilities with weekday programming and specialized activities. This program provides opportunities to learn independence, make friends and gain the community living experience. Center locations include West Allis, Wauwatosa, Waukesha and Kenosha.
The Recreation Program is the result of our partnership with The Milwaukee County Office of Persons with Disabilities. The program provides seasonal recreation activities for teens and adults, ages 16 and older at the Wil-O-Way Recreation Centers, Easter Seals locations, and at other community sites.
