Community Support Services (CSS) serve individuals with non-neurological disabilities, to include: developmental disabilities, long-term mental illness, and physical disabilities. Also served are individuals who have sustained a traumatic brain injury or other types of acquired brain injury (stroke, tumor, anoxia, etc.). Services are provided on an individualized basis to enhance the client’s capacity to process and interpret information and improve their ability to function in social, vocational, educational, and other community environments on a daily basis.

A comprehensive approach is utilized to improve functions such as attention, memory, problem-solving, reasoning, judgement, conceptualizing, and appropriate social interactions, and to teach compensatory strategies utilizing items such as schedules, checklists, memory books and assistive technology.

  • Food Preparation (measuring ingredients, reading instructions for food prep, following recipes)

Why Roger Walks

Roger Brannon is sittig down in a chair, talking. Behind him there is a banner with a USA flag and a saluting soldier. It reads "Did you know that ou military heroes are twice as likely to develop Lou Gehrig's Desease?

I met Roger Brannon, retired Marine, in March 2018. On May 23, 2016, nine days after his 45 birthday, Roger was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).  Not the news he expected to be dealing with when planning life at 45 and beyond. But it didn’t take this strong, brave Marine long to decide what he was going to do with his diagnosis. When the neurologist told Roger that he might have ALS, He researched ALS and was surprised by what he read. The first fact he found was that military veterans are twice as likely to get ALS. This hit home with him...
