Service Coordination is a person-centered program provided by qualified personnel for individuals served. Our highly educated and experienced Service Coordinators assist participants in exploring and securing supports and services that best meet their needs and desires, while allowing consumers to live as independently and productively as possible. In addition, Service Coordinators assist in the development, implementation, and monitoring of the consumer’s Service Plan (SP).
The Service Coordinator works in partnership with the participant and acts as an "advocate" and a "service broker", guiding consumers in negotiating the complex health care and service system.
Service Coordinators also assist participants in improving their functional independence by identifying and accessing community resources (e.g., finances, home care, transportation, vocational, mental health and other community based services) that can meet their environmental, personal, or interpersonal needs.
At Halo, our Service Coordinators manage assessments, make referrals, provide information regarding benefits and entitlements, monitor and maintain most services/supports as they apply to the consumers.
