Our DDS Program
As of March 2021, Renoxx Caregivers Inc. became a Licensed Provider for the Department of Disability Services (DDS) in the District of Columbia (DC). Our DDS Team will work hand in hand with each person and their families to ensure that they live the best possible lives and in their own unique ways.
Our DDS Mission Statement
The mission of Renoxx Caregivers Inc. is to provide innovative, high-quality services that enable persons diagnosed with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) to lead meaningful and productive lives as vital members of their families, schools, workplaces, and communities in every neighborhood in DC.
Our services to persons with disabilities will yield a greater sense of:
- Independence – to participate and integrate fully into the community and be productive.
- Empowerment – to choose the services and supports that meet their needs.
- Personalized and quality support – to address the specific needs of both the person and their family while maximizing individual growth and development.
- Person-centered planning approach – to focus on the person’s abilities, strengths, needs, and preferences.
Our DDS Vision Statement
Renoxx Caregivers envisions a future in which all persons living with IDD are fully included, participating members of their communities, and are supported to secure vocational opportunities of their choice. We see equitable access to opportunities, supports, and services that reflect the preferences and values of diverse communities that lead to self-determination, independence, productivity, and healthy and satisfying quality of life.
Our Core Values
At Renoxx Caregivers, we operate from the philosophy and principles that persons with intellectual disabilities and their families should control their own destiny. As such, our organization is guided by the following philosophy and values:
- Accountability: Renoxx Caregivers believes that being accountable means that we are answerable for our actions and the actions of our teams. We are committed to setting and holding our staff to a common expectation that includes an obligation to make things better, to pursue excellence, and to do things in ways that further the goals and wellbeing of those we serve.
- Collaboration: Renoxx Caregivers believes that because serving persons with IDD requires a multi-disciplinary approach, we believe in the power of working together with people from various disciplines and backgrounds to ensure the best possible outcomes for the persons we serve.
- Inclusion: Renoxx Caregivers believes that persons with IDD desire to be productive members of the community, and we are committed to supporting them to gain social acceptance, have positive interactions with others within their communities, and have meaningful relationships with family, friends, neighbors, and fellow workers. Renoxx Caregivers is devoted to exploring natural and community resources that will enable persons with IDD to live fulfilling lives.
- Innovation: Renoxx Caregivers encourages its staff to think out of the box and develop new ideas, ways, and initiatives of effectively working with persons with IDD to enable them easily achieve their goals.
- Supportive: Renoxx Caregivers strongly believes that every person with IDD has the capability for development and, therefore, should be encouraged to achieve their highest potential and the greatest degree of independence, so they may be allowed to experience the consequences of success or failure from their choices and decisions.
- Transparency: Renoxx Caregivers is committed to an honest, two-way openness between staff and the persons they support (including their families and other advocates)to improve quality, safety, and efficiency and endanger trust, communication, and greater levels of engagement and advocacy.
Our Implementation Approach
Our implementation approach and guidelines include the following components:
- Utilize appropriate person-centered discovery tools, including the Level of Need (LON) tool, the Person-Centered Thinking (PCT) tool, Positive Personal Profile (PPP), comprehensive functional or vocational assessment tools;
- Use information gathered from the discovery tools to develop the appropriate program and service plans, including Individualized Program Plan (IPP), Individualized Service Plan (ISP), Community Integration Plans (CIP), various Habilitation Plans, etc.;
- Identification of goals and objectives based on what is truly important to and for the person;
- Identification of desired outcomes that help to determine the supports and services needed;
