Development Disability Services Near Columbus, Ohio
Whether you're in need of personalized Homemaker Personal Care (HPC), transportation (non-medical or medical), or other hands-on services such as money management or residential respite — you can trust Pride in Care for the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) Services which we provide. These services are covered under Waivers and depending on which waiver, most do not have any out of pocket costs to the client. Also, as a Licensed Service Provider with the American Red Cross, we're proud to offer other non-DODD First Aid Services. Simply contact us online or via phone to schedule an assessment meeting to ensure we are able to meet your client's needs.
Homemaker Personal Care (HPC)
Homemaker/Personal Care, often called HPC, supports a person to become more independent while meeting their daily living needs. Direct service providers help people with household chores and personal care such as cleaning, getting dressed, making food, doing laundry, getting to and from appointments, and interacting with the community.
Homemaker Personal Care (HPC) Transport
Individuals with disabilities can access community activities, waiver services, and other resources with Homemaker Personal Care (HPC) Transport. This service is the perfect solution for transportation when other agencies or people are unable to provide assistance.
Non-Medical Transportation (NMT)
Non-Medical Transportation offers transportation solutions for getting to and/or from a place of employment or to access career planning, adult day support, individual/group employment support, or vocational habilitation.
Residential Respite makes it possible for an individual to receive support in the home of a friend, family member, or a licensed facility when their regular caregiver (paid or unpaid) is not available or needs a break.
These services complement the work of other professionals by facilitating the completion of day-to-day tasks based on the client’s needs. This can include bill paying, bank statement management, benefit applications, notarization or power of attorney duties, negotiating with creditors, and organizing tax documents.
With Participant-Directed HPC, a person can decide how much to pay their staff and they may act as the employer. This service provides help with tasks such as getting dressed, preparing food, and accessing things in the community. Remember, Participant-Directed HPC is an option available through all three of the waivers DODD administers.
Non-DODD / First Aid Services
Basic Life Support (BLS)
Basic Life Support, or BLS, generally refers to the type of care that first-responders, healthcare providers, and public safety professionals provide to anyone who is experiencing cardiac arrest, respiratory distress, or an obstructed airway. It requires knowledge and skills necessary for CPR, AED, and relieving obstructions.
First Aid skills are designed to help non-medical professionals provide assistance in times of crisis and to cover the best practices for a wide range of conditions. A few examples first aid skills or practices include burns, choking, heart attacks, diabetic emergencies, strokes, seizures, or head/neck injuries.
AED (Automated External Defibrillator)
An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It's an advanced, yet simple-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.
CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
CPR is a life-saving technique that can help you provide assistance when someone is faced with a cardiac or breathing emergency. These techniques often consist of body positioning, hand placement, and timing so that you can effectively help an adult in need.
Following standard precautions helps prevent the spread of bloodborne pathogens and other diseases whenever there is a risk of exposure to blood or other body fluids. Standard precautions include maintaining personal hygiene and using personal protective equipment (PPE), engineering controls, work practice controls, and proper equipment cleaning and spill cleanup procedures.
