Community Case Management

Every person deserves the chance to reach his or her full potential

Spectrum Generations Community Case Management team specializes in navigating a complicated system to link adults with intellectual disabilities, and their families, with needed supports and services that enhance independence in the community, at home and in the workplace.   

Our well-trained staff identifies available supports, services and resources in the community and advocate for the services that meet the consumer’s personal desires for their life.  This plan is referred to as a “Person Centered Plan.”   

In that process they must also indentify strategies that can assist consumers in making progress towards their personal goals.  Support strategies incorporate principles of: empowerment, health, safety, social, recreation, networking, housing and employment. 

The nutshell version of the program:

  • Work with consumers with intellectual disabilities to develop a “Person Centered Plan”
  • Link consumers to resources in the community
  • Advocate for quality services
  • Maintain good working relationships with providers involved in plan
  • Monitor all services provided to consumer
  • Monitor consumers and their family’s satisfaction with services
  • Assist in identifying and implementing support strategies that help consumers to achieve goals.
  • Serve as the consumer’s main connection to developmental services

 Nathan Dixon [Photo above], our Community Case Manager, exemplifies what it means to be a Spectrum Generations employee. 

"I greatly enjoy working with Nathan, as do my consumers and providers. Nathan has been able to get things done that previous case workers had been 'trying' to do for years in some instances. He is always on time and so isn't his work. I never have to ask him to open an assessment or schedule a meeting unless I need to get it done earlier than the state's time frames. I have never experienced him being late on a plan, whihc has been an issue within our agency. I know many times supervisors only hear the negative things so I want you to be aware of what a gift your agency has been given with Nathan." 

[Photo to the left] An older male consumer has lived his entire life without being able to read. With assistance by Spectrum Generations case manager he was linked to a Literacy Volunteer that has worked with him and he is now able to read some of the local newspaper and some short stories. He also had a great interest in volunteering and enjoys the elderly population very much. Again with assistance he is now volunteering to deliver Meals on Wheels to homebound folks in his area.

[No Photo] Spectrum Generations provides case management to a married couple who were very much in need of home repairs in order to remain in their home. After nearly a year of endless processing of applications and proof of need this couple was linked to a much needed USDA home repair loan. This will allow them to repair structural parts of the home and will also improve the ability to more efficiently heat their home.
