What is Assisted Living?

Assisted Living combines housing and supportive health care services for those who cannot or prefer not to live alone and do not need the 24-hour skilled medical care of a nursing home. It is specifically designed to provide assistance to those who still want their independence but need help with activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing, and medication supervision.

Assisted Living facilities are often deemed necessary when the person in question is sometimes confused, or is experiencing memory problems. Assisted Living bridges the gap between the independence of retirement living and the total reliance upon long-term nursing care and promotes maximum privacy, security, respect, and, most of all independence.

Behavior Assistant Services (BAS)

Description: The primary purpose of the behavior assistant services (BAS) is to provide support in implementing the behavior analysis services plan created by the waiver behavior analyst or provider licensed under Chapter 490 or 491, F.S. The assistant must maintain a copy of the plan. This includes assisting the certified behavior analyst in assessing the recipient, assisting in implementing new procedures in the presence of the behavior analyst, acting as a model for correct implementation for the recipient or the caregivers, or coaching caregivers to implement the behavior program. Unlike other services, the behavior assistant provider’s focus is more on working with the caregivers to provide them with the skills to execute the procedures as detailed in the behavior analysis services plan, rather than the provision of intervention directly with the recipient.

Live Scan

What is Live Scan Fingerprinting?

Live scan fingerprinting is the process of capturing fingerprints electronically with our advanced live scan machine. With live scan fingerprinting, there is no ink or card. Your fingerprints are “rolled” across a glass plate and scanned. It is faster, cleaner, and more accurate than the old ink and roll method.

A percentage of the population have hard to read fingerprints, which can be affected by age or exposure to work, such as construction or harsh cleaning or other chemicals. Our state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained staff, are able to maximize the quality of fingerprint images obtained, which reduces the likelihood of illegible fingerprints and will reduce the overall application processing time. The fingerprints are then submitted to the specific state or federal agency to process.
