We pride ourselves in carefully considering our clients’ and caregivers’ needs when creating employment relationships, and both parties must sign a mutual agreement before services are provided. Each client receives a maximum amount of hours he/she can use each week, and it is up to you, the client, and the client’s guardian to create a schedule that works for everyone involved and does not extend the hours allocated to the client by the State of Arizona.

CAREGIVERS AND CARE PROVIDERS
Deliver The Following Services
Habilitation services prepare people with developmental disabilities to live more independently in the community by learning and developing new skills, abilities, and behaviors. Common areas for training include: self-care, communication, socialization, safety, physical and emotional expression, pre-vocational skills, leisure activities, and problem solving. A trained Direct Support Professional, who works one-on-one with the client based on goals and outcomes determined by the individual and his or her team, provides the service. Parents and guardians can often be trained to provide Habilitation services to their adult children.
Respite services are care services provided to the client during which they do not work on specific goals, but rather enjoy leisure time. Caregivers are supervising the client in the client’s home or the community, and engage in activities with them.
Often, clients receive both of the above described services from the DDD, and it is the caregivers responsibility to record worked hours for these services accordingly and in a truthful manner. Any fraudulent activity will cause the end of employment at Stepping Stones Care and will be reported to the authorities.
Attendant care helps disabled workers perform the day-to-day tasks that they would normally perform if not for their disability. Some examples of what attendant care provides include cleaning, bathing, laundry and cooking. Attendant care also functions to teach the disabled person how to perform day-to-day tasks independently. Attendant care can be 24-hour care, for the seriously disabled, or for sporadic periods throughout the day.
