CARE (Community Assisted Rehabilitation Effort)
What is Community Assisted Rehabilitation Effort?
C.A.R.E. (Community Assisted Rehabilitation Efforts), CARE is Desert View’s newest program design to assist those who struggle with their daily needs and who also live with serious mental illness and have minimal natural supports. This is a hands on program assisted by a team of CARE Coordinators that will make sure the clients will receive a continuum of services that is best practice for each individual client.
CARE helps the client take care of their basic needs. These needs can include helping with ADL’s, keeping their appointments, helping with transportation, and having medications delivered to them daily.
CARE can assist with:
- Crisis Assessment and Intervention
- Comprehensive assessment
- Individual therapy and support groups
- Medication Management
Side by side assistance with activities of daily living
Intervention with support networks (family, friends, landlords, neighbors, etc.,)
Substance abuse and addiction treatment
Support services, such as prescription, administration, and mentoring
How does CARE compare with traditional treatment?
CARE is a new program with services aligned to help support clients living individually within the community. The hope is clients would spend less time in hospitals, treatment centers, jail, and other outside home placements. This program can assist clients in:
- Keep their jobs
- Experience more positive social relationships/ support system
- Having more satisfaction with life
- Minimizing mental health symptoms
- Improving financial capabilities
