When a person with intellectual and developmental challenges reaches adulthood and beyond, there is a great deal of anxiety and uncertainty for them and their family members. The biggest question they face is, "Where should we turn for comprehensive assistance?"
At Road to Responsibility, our day habilitation services are called the "Open Roads" programs - so named because they do just that. Today, RTR's Open Roads' programs encompass 5 South Shore locations that serve nearly 225 individuals. "Individuals" is the key word, because at RTR each program offers its own unique service that reflects the interests and needs of those being served.
RTR takes pride in its ability to successfully serve individuals with complex needs. Its Day Habilitation represents the only therapeutic day service available to people with developmental disabilities. Our staff is both caring and compassionate, and works closely with other professionals to effectively meet the needs of each consumer. From individual case manager to full-time nurses and licensed therapists (covering occupational, physical, speech and behavioral areas - augmented by music, art and movement therapists) - the sole concern is the individual. The goal is to help improve both the quality of their lives and improve their overall functionality and independence in the community.
RTR's Open Roads programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and were recently awarded thier highest level of accreditation.
To maintain this service excellence we are constantly looking for new, interesting and creative best practices to include in our curriculum.
