Individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities have more success when they have some choice and control over their own care. Southside Behavioral Health support coordinators facilitate this by providing individuals with various opportunities for treatment and community engagement. They are always on the lookout for new opportunities and ways to better integrate individuals with their communities. This may include building community connections through social participation and meaningful employment that allows individuals to live their own lives as safely and independently as possible.
Enhanced Support Coordination
Enhanced support coordination provides additional levels of care for individuals with higher needs. Through this service, support coordinators provide increased levels of support, mediation, and accountability for individuals in order to ensure they are receiving the best quality care for their needs. This means that residential as well as other services are monitored more closely to ensure individuals comfort and success.
The state of Virginia has three waivers available for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They are as follows: Building Independence Waiver, Family and Individual Support Waiver, and Community Living Waiver. Southside Behavioral Health manages intellectual and developmental disability waivers for the counties of Mecklenburg, Halifax and Brunswick located in southern Virginia.
