Creating Individualized Assistance for those with Disabilities

Serving families and loved ones with disabilities in individualized ways, like family

Our Purpose

PLAN’s mission is to provide peace of mind for people with serious, chronic disabilities and their families – today, tomorrow, and for a lifetime.  We answer the heart-wrenching question “Who will care for my loved one with a disability when I no longer can?” by combining the expertise of seasoned professionals with the warmth and caring of family. Our goal is to provide long term quality services that enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities now and over the course of their lifetimes.

Planning

We help families develop a comprehensive long-term plan of care, created specifically for each individual that includes:

  • Contingency care planning
  • Estate Planning to protect benefits and entitlements

Recreation Programs

People with disabilities can be isolated and lonely, prevented from engaging in community activities due to lack of funds, transportation, and friends.  PLAN’s Recreation Program reduces such isolation by offering a monthly calendar of recreational activities, the majority of which are community based, where people can socialize, have fun, and feel like a part of things!

  • Monthly restaurant dinners
  • Movies
  • Sports outings
  • Art and cultural outings
  • Local fairs and festivals
  • Bowling
  • Arts and crafts classes, at PLAN and in the community
  • Parties and picnics
