Quality Lives for People with Developmental Disabilities

Person Centered Services

Person Centered Services Department at Richmond Community Services has been established to ensure all supports and services we provide are empowering the people we support to make personal choices and realize dreams. The department is staffed by many Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professionals ( QIDP’s) who are committed to providing guidance, training, support and resources to all staff to ensure the people we support live a life that is meaningful to them. Each residence has a QIDP assigned to develop the person centered plans with the people we support using a supported decision making model and aligned with Personal Outcome Measures.  The QIDP’s collaborate with the managers to foster meaningful, respectful, person centered relationships between the staff and the residents. The Person Centered Services Department works collaboratively with all other departments at Richmond Community Services to review, revise and improve all systems, policies and practices as we strive for excellence in providing dignity, opportunity and community for all people.
