About Person Centered Services

Connecting you to your best life!

Our Care Coordinators link and refer to a huge network of resources, making sure people are connected to the support they need.
We help people navigate through the complicated eligibility and enrollment process, with you every step of the way.

Who is Eligible for Care Coordination?

Individuals may be eligible for supports and services from New York State's Office for People With Developmental Disabilities, and therefore eligible for Care Coordination. If eligibility is not yet granted, our Intake Specialists can help with the eligibility process. Care Coordinators support individuals with a qualifying condition. Examples of qualifying conditions include: Intellectual Disability, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Neurological Impairment, Autism, Familial Dysautonomia, Prader-Willi Syndrome.
    Person Centered Services is dedicated to providing every individual with the tailored support he or she deserves – for life. This includes:
    • Comprehensive care – creating a ‘Life Plan’
    • Care coordination and health promotion – monitoring all health-related services, safety needs and more
    • Comprehensive transitional care – coordinating activities related to life circumstances
    • Referrals of individuals to community and social support services
    • Individual and family support – referrals of family to community services and promoting informed choices
    • Use of sophisticated health information technology
