The Abilities, Inc. Philosophy
Where focus is on abilities, not “dis” abilities, Abilities, Inc. pledges to support and enhance the quality of life for all our clients.
We recognize the difficulty in meeting the challenges of daily living. This is why Abilities, Inc. promises to provide quality services. Abilities, Inc. pledges to offer diverse living options, with opportunities found in few assisted living programs. Whether an individual is best suited for a Community Based Residential Facility, an Adult Family Home, or an Apartment Program we will provide that option. Abilities, Inc. will also offer a structured Adult Day Care for daily programming needs. These environments will be staffed with trained professionals that will care for and nurture each and every client that we serve.
Whether an individual has a Developmental Disability, Chronic Mental Illness, Traumatic Brain Injury, Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia, AODA, Physical Disabilities or other special diagnosis, we can provide options for them.
Abilities, Inc. pledges that our options and services will recognize the interests of the client, the county agent, legal guardian, and family members. We will promote community integration while ensuring safe living environments, as well.
Abilities, Inc. is honored to be considered as a community option for such special individuals. We are available for tours and free comprehensive assessments.
Abilities Covid-19 Plan
Dear Family, Friends and Team members,
Abilities Assisted Living would like to take this time to acknowledge the large concern of many receiving services in Assisted living and offer some details to our response to the COVID-19 outbreak. We want to assure you that the safety of our Residents and Staff is always our top priority.
Abilities is currently working with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Abilities has implemented and is training staff and managers regarding the guidelines outlined in ref: QSO-20-14-NH.
Abilities will be placing safety precautions on visitation for limiting transmission of COVID-19.
If a visitor should meet any of the criteria below, we ask that they NOT visit Abilities Homes, Supported Apartments, Day program or offices.
Facilities will actively screen and restrict for the following criteria:
- Signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat.
- In the last 14 days, has had contact with someone with a confirmed diagnosed case of COVID-19, or are under the investigation for COVID-19, or are ill with respiratory illness.
- International travel within the last 14 days to countries with sustained community transmission. For updated countries visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html
- Residing in a community where community-based spread of COVID-19 is occurring.
For those individuals or families that do not meet the above criteria, facilities may allow entry but may require visitors to wear a mask (PPE).
If the above criteria are met as described in line 1. Abilities will be asking that families do not take members on home visits, vacations or outings. When on a visit or outing and the member then begins to exhibit the symptoms listed above, the member must be seen and cleared by a medical professional before they will be allowed to return to the facility.
Abilities would ask that home visits and visits to the homes be limited or held if possible, at this time.
Abilities will provide a computer for residents to use to skype or chat online from the app of your choosing. We want to continue to facilitate and encourage family involvement.
We will continue to follow recommendations and mandates from the CMS, CDC and DHS. We are receiving updates daily.
Abilities will be applying these same restrictions to Staff and administration.
We have reviewed standard precautions with staff and prepared them for the extra work involved in keeping the homes safe.
Please Review ref: QSO-20-14-NH.
