Happy Developmental Disability Professionals Day

Developmental disability professionals go by many names, but their mission is the same: to ensure that developmentally disabled people live the fullest and most independent lives they can. They help others every day of the year, but on July 15th it’s their turn to be recognized.

GrandCare is delighted to support many disability service providers with enabling technologies to make the lives of their clients and staff safer, happier and healthier. Not to mention, in a very cost-effective way.

Many people with intellectual or developmental disabilities can live independently– if they have the right support. I/DD professionals provide it using a combination of in-person support, remote video chat check-ins and through remote monitoring technologies.

LADD, a Cincinnati-area disability service provider, provides the dignity of adulthood through housing, health and wellness, day programs, employment, and advocacy. They are also now partnering with GrandCare to develop a new service delivery model. “We’re focused on how to expand people’s options in the community for independence and individual growth,” said Brian Hart, Chief Strategy Officer at LADD. “I’m pretty lucky as the chief strategy officer at LADD. All I do is build out the future. And GrandCare is the perfect partner for where we’re going in disability services.”

“Disability service providers serve some of the most vulnerable people in the community. We’re so very proud to make the tools these heroes use every day,” said GrandCare CEO, Laura Mitchell
