Meeting Services Goal
Service goals are tailored supports that assist with acquisition, retention, or improvement of skills related to living in the community or at the member’s residence.
The member’s ISP will include measurable goals that reflect the specific tasks/behaviors/skills that the member wants to work on specifically for the timeframe identified. It is generally the top 2-3 things that are most critical to them reaching their desired outcome.
The habilitation objectives may be based around:
- Adaptive skill development
- Assistance with activities of daily living
- Community inclusion
- Social and leisure skills
- Personal care
- Physical and emotional health and development
- Language and communication development
- Socialization and community integration
- Responsibility and self-direction
- Mobility skills
- And many more!
Goals should be easily measurable, be focused on outcomes rather than process, be meaningful to the member doing the objective, and be fun and interesting to keep the member engaged.
Once goals are established in the ISP, all of Embrace Life providers are trained on how to implement the goals with the member according to the teaching strategies developed and how to document the results. At each ISP review, the results of the goals are discussed with the team to see if they are successful or not. The team will either agree to continue the goal as it is or to adjust it to set the member up for better success..
