About D&S community Services

D&S promotes optimal independence and quality of life by providing exceptional person-centered services for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Since 1991, D&S Community Services has remained steadfast in our commitment to provide the highest quality care in the industry through staff training, innovative programs, and an emphasis on in-house professional expertise, medical care, and psychological services. As part of our commitment to the individuals we serve, D&S has developed specialized services, departments, and programs to help everyone involved – the individual, their family, and D&S staff – contribute to an environment of success and fulfillment.

D&S’ unique services and programs include:

Person Centered Thinking Approach- Person Centered Thinking is a specialized training and certification program instituted throughout D&S that uses a variety of tools and skills to discover what is important to and for an individual to help them live a better life.

QA Training and Programs- Our formal and comprehensive Quality Assurance (QA) Program administered by an in-house team of QA professional auditors and registered nurses ensures quality services and high levels of regulatory compliance.

In-House Psychology Services- D&S’ in-house team of psychology professionals work closely with individuals day-to-day to establish support services and track progress over the long term.

Nursing Care- Each individual at D&S partners with a team of nurses who provide ongoing medical oversight. This one-on-one relationship coupled with a low nurse-to-individual ratio ensures the specific needs of each individual are met.

Health and Well-Being Services- D&S provides a full array of day-to-day health and specialized medical services to help all individuals, regardless of disability or health status, maintain the highest level of independence and quality of life possible.

Individual Supports Oversight- D&S support oversight professionals work side-by-side with the individual throughout all service planning and support procurement, and help ensure their happiness and success in the community.
