Developmental disabilities are conditions that cause impairment in behavior, language, learning, or physical aspects of a person, and they can affect how they function every day, and mostly it can last a lifetime. Sadly, individuals who have been affected often experience discrimination, but here at The Journey Ahead Home Care Agency, where we provide home health care in Ohio, you will be treated with the utmost respect as we believe in the rights of all people.
The elderly being affected by developmental disabilities has become a growing concern. And we must bring awareness to this situation and provide them with as much support as we can. Through the Concierge Services that we offer, it is our goal to ensure that those with any health condition are being assisted while at the same time maintaining their independence, as we want to be able to cater to your unique needs.
As a society, it is our responsibility to ensure that everyone recognizes each person’s value, no matter their age or condition. We are all unique and have abilities to offer the community. Through patient education, we can provide them the support they need, remove or lessen the barriers that hold them back by giving them the resources they also need, and help them live a fulfilling life.
It is important that a home health provider and their families let them know their importance in the community and that they are respected. People of all ages with developmental disabilities should be:
- Able to live a life free from discrimination based on age and/or disability.
- Properly taken care of and not experienced abuse or neglect.
- Given the opportunity to study, work, and retire like everyone else.
- Offered easy access to transportation and other services.
- Receiving appropriate medical treatment.
