EXCEPTIONAL CARE FOR EXCEPTIONAL INDIVIDUALS
Many aging parents, guardians and siblings are confronted with the challenge of establishing care arrangements for their beloved adult children with disabilities when they are no longer able to care for them independently within the family home. Other families do not have the resources necessary to provide the safe, caring and engaging environment that exceptional individuals truly deserve. United Community Supports of Maryland was specifically created to meet the needs of parents and guardians by supporting adults with developmental disabilities in the home and in the community. With commitment, compassion and support, we are helping many individuals with special needs achieve their fullest potential.
We are dedicated to providing exceptional support to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities within the home and community environment. Our clients deserve the absolute best and we are committed to ensuring that they receive just that!
HELP OUR ORGANIZATION HELP OTHERS!
We are deeply committed to providing our clients with the care and support that they deserve. We ensure that clients have our full support in successfully exercising the four principles of self-determination:
the freedom to make choices;
the authority over services and support;
the responsibility for organizing resources; and
the utilization of supports necessary to live within the community.
We specialize in providing community and home-based Personal Supports services to adults with developmental disabilities.
We provide comprehensive and individualized support that empowers our clients to achieve as much as possible as well as to exercise their self-determination and autonomy.
Among the most severely disabled persons living in the community, about two-thirds rely solely on family members and other informal help, often resulting in great strain for family caregivers.
