Our Philosophy is to invest time, experience and education to help change lives. Our individuals are taught valuable life skills and encouraged to try first, and ask for help second. This strategy builds a foundation of confidence that helps the individual live a safer, more independent lifestyle. By equipping the families of our individuals with information and new tools, they can assist their children in becoming independent, productive members of society.
Advanced Independence celebrates individuality and recognizes the different ways people learn. Through a process known as the Individual Support Plan (ISP), our team members create plans utilizing a variety of community based programs that promote the individual creativity of each individual. Team members monitor individuals on a regular basis, praising effort and successes.
Progress is often slow for our individuals, so we encourage them to push for achievement that is made by never giving up, and by going beyond what they think they can do. At Advanced Independence, our motto is “Put forth your best efforts until you achieve it. And we are always here to help you be the best possible you”.
Advanced Independence believes that our team members and the individuals we serve are a part of one giant family made up of talented individuals, with each playing a vital role in making the world a better place. We believe that it is our responsibility to create more compassionate, caring and tolerant communities.
At Advanced Independence, we strive to make the transition from dependence to independence for each of our individuals a little easier.
