lifempowered (formerly known as Riverside Training Centers) has been supporting people experiencing Intellectual and Developmental Diversities (I/DD) in their community since 1974. We have been providing comprehensive (around the clock) support to people in their homes for almost as long!
Just like you, people experiencing I/DD live in a variety of places – from 24-hour group homes, to their own home, with the support they need. From taking care of basics, trips to the doctor, paying bills and balancing checkbooks, to grocery shopping, preparing and storing meals, or joining friends at a club...we are there to help when requested.
At lifempowered, we customize supports to fit whatever level people need. Our residential services fall into two basic categories:
We are only a phone call away, if something comes up between visits. We believe there is dignity in risk, yet want to ensure that any risk is mitigated by careful planning, support and access to resources.
Only when we have worked ourselves out of a job, because the person is fully engaged in, and supported by their community, can we claim success.
If you are interested in staying in your own home with support, or are interested in one of our group home options, please get in touch through our Contact Us page.
