Home Care & Independent Living Philosophy


Recipient of care who has a voice in directing their own services through participation in developing their own “Independent Living Plan” that creates the framework for all services being rendered. Consumers are the first and most important piece of the plan for receiving in-home care.

Personal Care Attendants

Our valued attendants at DON Services provide you, the consumer, with your in-home care. The goal of DON attendants is to assist the consumer in maintaining their independence at home and in the community while adhering to your person centered independent living plan. They are trained to meet consumer’s direct daily needs as well as an understanding of the independent living philosophy.

Independent Living Coordinators

Dedicated team that provides direct oversight and coordination of consumer care. The ILC is a bridge for communication between the consumer and their Service Coordinator with their Managed Care Organization (MCO), attendants, and state regulation guidelines. While you, the consumer, are your own best advocate, ILC take pride in assisting and standing by your side to help maintain your personal level of freedom and independence.
