Non 24 Hour Supported Community Living
WESCO Industries’ Non 24 Hour Supported Community Living Program is designed to support and encourage individuals to live as independently as possible in their own homes. Staff is available to provide individualized services at times that are convenient to the person served. The goal of the program is to maintain independent living and increase involvement in the community. The program provides training to help people develop or regain skills of daily living.
These skills include: money management/budgeting, daily living skills, hygiene and self-care, grocery shopping, exercise, mental health, transportation, scheduling and attending appointments, medication management as well as social integration.
Our members enjoy Friday lunches with their peers where they get to choose a different restaurant within Denison and surrounding communities every week. WESCO staff is also available to assist members on yearly vacations of the member’s choosing.
Daily Supported Community Living
This program differs from Non 24 SCL to give individuals a stronger level of independence even though they may require a higher level of supervision. These individuals will live in a home in the community with 3 to 4 other roommates that is rented from a landlord in the community. WESCO provides staff support for all aspects of residential life, including banking, cooking, shopping, healthcare, transportation recreation and community inclusion.
Families, caregivers, guardians, caseworkers, and other agencies should contact Deidra Brown at 712-263-6141 or email if they are interested in having WESCO provide services or to request a tour or additional information.
