The Katie Beckett program offers a variety of services to individuals with disabilities and their families. This program allows eligible children and young adults to access essential services and support, which might otherwise be financially burdensome for families. The Katie Beckett Waiver empowers families to prioritize their loved one’s well-being, growth, and inclusion within the community. This program ensures access to specialized care and services and fosters a higher quality of life, increased independence, and greater opportunities for individuals to reach their full potential.
Katie Beckett Services provided by Waves include:
Supported Home Care Services – Supportive Home Care Services provide personalized assistance and guidance within the comfort of a child’s own home. Our trained staff work closely with families and their loved ones to ensure daily activities, personal care, and specific needs are met, fostering a safe and nurturing environment.
Respite Services – Respite Services offer caregivers a well-deserved break from their responsibilities, providing temporary care for their loved ones. This allows caregivers to recharge while ensuring their family member receives attentive and compassionate care from our experienced staff. During respite care, we strive to maintain the routines and preferences that contribute to their well-being.
Community Integration Services – Community Integration Services focus on enhancing social interactions and engagement. We facilitate meaningful connections by organizing outings, activities, and events that promote community involvement and social growth. This not only broadens horizons but also creates a supportive network that fosters friendships and a sense of belonging.
