Brighton Support Living provides a variety of services including; Supported living services, Crisis diversion services, and a number of different trainings.
Supported Living Services
In Supported Living, a person with disabilities gets the support they need to live in their own home in the community. If the person’s needs change, the support they get can also be changed to reflect that need. This means the supports are designed for the person. The individual and their family (guardians in many cases) are able to direct their own services based on their desires for care, needs, and quality of life. Each individual is empowered to make their own choices including where to live, who to live with, where to work, and how to spend their time.
At Brighton, we offer services for people with any type of challenge or need including significant medical issues or challenging behavior.
Crisis Diversion Services
Brighton offers short term Crisis Diversion Services. Also termed as "diversion bed." When individuals are in jeopardy of losing their placement in another care setting, or even at home with their families due to significant behavioral challenges, they may qualify for a temporary spot in our diversion home.
Our staff work with the individual in de-escalating the behavior and help stabilize them. Our services include writing and implementing "Positive Behavior Support Plans" (PBSP), training of staff at their care placement, and coordinating with physicians and mental health professionals.
