Emerge, Inc. -- Choices for People with Disabilities
Residential and Living Services
Emerge supports individuals in their own or family homes, supported living homes, or full residential services provided by Emerge. All of Emerge's services are individualized, and are built around one person at a time. Emerge operates no group homes, and all services are fully integrated into communities in the Baltimore Washington metropolitan area.
In-home supports are provided in the individual's home, or the family home. Services include assistance with activities of daily living, personal hygiene, home care, health care management, psychology and therapeutic services, recreation and leisure, mobility, and meaningful days. Levels of intensity range from a few hours a week to 24 hour in-home support. Because Emerge offiers a life-time commitment to individuals, services may change in intensity and structure as individual needs change.
Supported Living Services are provided in the individual's home or a home/apartment the individual obtains with financial assistance from Emerge. Supported Living services are designed so that individuals may live-in and manage their own homes, and may pick from the menu of areas that Emerge can provide services. Each individual, with the help of family and team as appropriate, develops their own service needs, selecting detailed support, training, or therapeutic items from the categories of:
(i) self care,
(ii) receptive and expressive language,
(vi) capacity for independent living,
(vii) economic self-sufficiency;
Residential Services are comprehensive services provided by Emerge in single family homes owned or operated by Emerge. Individuals may live with up to 2 other individuals with disabilities, and every effort is made to ensure individuals live with people they want to live with. A comprehensive evaluation is completed for each individual, and an individual plan is developed that defines the supervision, training, social/leisure opportunities, and therapies that will provided for that individual.
