House Calls, LLC is a client-centered individualized at home support system.
Goals include our clients perceptions, needs and interests to foster an attitude of
hopefulness. The benefits to utilizing a coach that meets a client in their home or
where THEY wish, helps to break down the barrier of an individual not wanting to
go out and enables options that create a healthy routine.
Techniques and strategies are incorporated to achieve positive outcomes. The
coach who comes to the house and/or meets the clients where they want to go,
builds trust and rapport needed for the vision of life sustaining healing.
Recreation Therapy is also useful in establishing the role-modeling necessary for
adapting activities in the home or within their community programs. Integration
with friends and resources are essential in maintaining a healthy identity.
Many of our clients are multi-layered with anxiety and depression making the
community rehabilitation plan harder to tackle. The side effects of medications
used to stabilize these individuals becomes a challenge so teaching our clients
reframing techniques to master negative thinking allows them to view their world
with a sense of mastery.
Our wrap around model allows for specialists to create an interdisciplinary
approach where any service needed for any family member is under one
An example would be our Life Coach, Recreation Therapist, Psychologist and
Medical Case Manager working as a team to provide significant supports with the
ultimate goal of nurturing the persons sense of self worth.
