BRODIE Community and Residential Services (BCRS) provides
a support based service to individuals 18 and older within
an exclusive structured and nurturing program. Our program(s)
are designed to meet the needs of adults with physical
and or developmental disabilities, adults who have difficulty
performing activities of daily living, and adults with
psychological and neurological disorders who may be disoriented
with their surroundings.
BCRS provides for each individual’s physical and emotional
well-being through structured social, recreational, vocational
and life skill based activities.
Our program(s) are based on the foundation that individuals
with exceptional needs can attain and sustain productive,
meaningful, and satisfying lifestyles according to their
interest, aptitudes and abilities, within the most consistent
and structured environment possible.
BCRS’s programs are goal focused and designed on an individual
basis; an IPP (Individualized Program Plan) is designed
for each individual upon admission and reviewed / revised
regularly thereafter. This includes goal areas with applicable
strategies and outcomes within the program. These objectives
are developed based on the initial and subsequent assessment(s)
of the individual's level of functioning and the individual's
rate of skill acquisition. The IPP also includes a well-defined
routine and activities primarily designed to assist in
developing social skills and life skills.
To formulate these goals, a social history and all documentation
gathered and provided by the caregiver / guardian / placing
agency are utilized. The goal setting process is a collaborative
one; all persons having involvement with the individual
are consulted and are involved. Goals are set to ensure
success is achievable and measurable; goal areas are continuously
assessed and reformulated as progress is achieved.
Our services are designed to address physical, behavioral,
psychological, neurological, and intellectual development
and impairments that prohibit an individual from fully
realizing and ‘tapping into’ his or her potential. Areas
also focused on include: identity, family and social relationships,
social presentation, self care skills, personal hygiene
and health, life skills and vocational training as well
as recreation and community involvement.
Access to effective Behaviour Management Techniques and
Individualized Behaviour Management Programming is also
available by consultation with our Behavioural Therapist.
