A Different Approach
Using a less top-heavy model compared to other agencies will allow us to deliver services in a budget conscious manner. It will also allow for the direct support professionals at BOLD to be paid a higher than average rate for their position. Paying higher starting salaries allows us to hire a truly talented team. The BOLD team will be “boots on the ground” and will always be involved in direct supports.
Through the Lifesharing model, BOLD will assist families to receive the support and services that they need. This is truly life changing for people who have struggled for years to balance working and caring for their family member.
Providing short-term breaks for families and other caregivers is beneficial for everyone. BOLD will work with families and the adults they support to create a positive living environment.
Where other agencies try to deliver this model in the old group home setting, BOLD will assist people to find a more community-based living arrangement. BOLD will provide education and support to people who want to live independently in their community.
