Communicare Michigan believes that to accomplish the goal of successful independent community living, then supportive, rehabilitative services must be offered to our Members in the very places they will need to demonstrate those skills. A strengths based philosophy is emphasized so our Members can achieve full community reintegration they desire.
The Clubhouse model has been adapted into TBI rehabilitation to accomplish this goal, and each Clubhouse has been strategically located near the heart of cities like Bloomfield HIlls, Rochester, Utica and Tampa, Florida so Members can have full access to community resources. Members who participate in our Home and Community-based Rehabilitation programs can choose an apartment or home within close proximity to a Clubhouse site, thus providing them with nearby support and assistance. For Members who are unable to obtain a leased home in the community from third party landlords, Communicare Michigan has its own apartment complex located near downtown Utica.
Communicare Michigan also provides in-home attendant care and supervision on an individual basis to allow our participants the dignity of living in a comfortable home setting rather than a group home or institution. Highly trained Life Skills Specialist assist our Members in their homes with Activities of Daily Living (ADL) completion, medication oversight, meal planning and preparation, and basic home maintenance. Recreational and Occupational Therapy services are integrated into home and community life to assist our Members with banking, grocery shopping, and recreation and leisure skills. The Clubhouse also offers activities during the evenings and weekends to encourage additional community involvement.
