Dungarvin Services

Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities

It is our belief that helping a person with intellectual and developmental disabilities achieve his or her full potential improves the quality of life of the entire community. 

Dungarvin provides a wide array of supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a variety of settings. Many people with intellectual and developmental disabilities require some assistance in order to live a full, productive and rich life. Depending on the needs of the individual, and the state in which the service is needed, individuals with these challenges can find supports via our residential, host home, foster care, hourly supports, day, vocational, or case management services.

We strive to provide supports that are tailored to meet that person’s own hopes, dreams desires and needs. An interdisciplinary team works together to develop a service plan which outlines the services and supports needed for each individual. We encourage self-determination and choice for all the persons we support, and we work hard to provide services of the highest quality.

Dungarvin provides many different types of support for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Day Services

Our Day Services programs offer a variety of supports for people with Intellectual and Development Disabilities. Depending on the location, services available may include a combination of supports such as community integration, base site programming, employment opportunities, problem-solving and decision-making in everyday living, participating in community events and leisure activities, or assisting people to prepare for a vocational, recreational, or other community based programs.

In-Home Services

In-Home services are developed to provide supports to a child, adolescent or adult living with his or her family or in their own living environment. We serve individuals with a broad range of abilities and needs and our in-home services vary. The person and the family design the level of support and service that is needed.

Case Management Services

Dungarvin provides case management services to support people in their goal of living in the community as independently as possible.

Vocational Services

Vocational services provide individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities assistance with the initial stages of the employment assessment period, job searching and development, job coaching, and working independently.

Hourly Supports

Dungarvin's hourly supports provide staffing only when a person needs assistance. Staff are scheduled to be on-site to assist an individual according to his or her personal needs and goals. In some instances, staff may only drop by to assist with medication needs or financial assistance. In others, staff may be scheduled for longer time periods to assist with additional daily living skills.

Residential Services

Residential services are provided to an individual living in his or her own home or apartment with or without roommates, depending on the location. These sites serve individuals of various need levels, including individuals with significant medical, physical, or behavioral challenges. Staffing levels vary by the needs of the people being served. The focus of these services is to enhance independence and quality of life. Dungarvin's residential services are very flexible and easily modified to meet changing abilities, interests, choices, and needs of individuals.

Host Home Services

The Host Home model allows an individual to live in a private residence with a family or caregiver (non-related parent, guardian or spouse) rather than in an apartment or group home. Host Home providers are not Dungarvin employees; they are independent contractors and manage their own home business. Host Home families or caregivers assist the individual in developing skills and building relationships in the community, the family, and their own personal life. Host Home living is highly flexible and focused on personal choice.
