Family Care is a program in which individuals, including children with developmental disabilities are placed with families in homes in the community. Heads of households are recruited, trained and certified by the office of the New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) to provide housing and care for individuals with disabilities. The Family Care Program also provides these individuals with on going service coordination and ensures that the homes meet all New York State safety and regulatory mandates.

Family Care consumers are served by a team which is composed of a Family Care coordinator, Family Care Provider(s), Medicaid Service Coordinators and a nursing team which provides medical care and intervention to consumers in our Family Care program. The five medical team members (One RN-BSN, two RNs and two Health Service Managers) act as the liaison between the consumers and their various medical providers to ensure that the consumers are receiving proper medical care and follow-up. In addition to communicating with medical providers, the team members also coordinate appointments, follow up on prescription orders and disseminate and coordinate relevant medical information to the various service providers.
