Our Mission is to provide services to people with differing abilities so that they may, as true citizens in the community, enjoy life, freedom and independence in the least restrictive environment possible. In addition it is our intent to provide individuals with a maximum number of opportunities to exercise personal choice, to experience self-growth, and to develop the capacity for meeting the normal challenges and risks of daily living. Innovative Lifestyles, Inc. also serves as advocates for the rights of each individual and to inform them of their rights as citizens.
It is the philosophy of Innovative Lifestyles, Inc. that excellent services and quality of life can be achieved through the use of non-aversive techniques and through listening to, and understanding each person’s individual needs and desires. Our focus is to teach values and rebuild life skills through establishing trusting relationships and supporting each individual by honoring their preferences, needs and desires and through teaching a sense of companionship, self-worth and community.
Innovative Lifestyles, Inc. provides its caregivers with on-going training and support in order to enhance the lives of the individuals that we serve. Our philosophy is based upon the principles of Gentle Teaching as mentored by Dr. John McGee. Innovative Lifestyles, Inc. supports this philosophy through providing a deep commitment to building positive, loving relationships within our homes and community. Our company is also an active participant in the International Gentle Teaching Institute and learns and shares our successes with others from around the world.
24-hour emergency on-call services are available at all times to support the individual and assure quality of care, safety and security.
