PCS provides Specialized Adult Residential Services in Ventura and North Los Angeles Counties. The homes are designed to serve individuals from Developmental Centers that might otherwise not have a chance to move into a community setting.
PCS operates three Adult Residential homes. Two of the homes are located in Ventura and the third home is located in West Hills, California. The development of the homes was an effort to provide alternative community transition options to individuals residing in the Developmental Centers.
The Ventura homes are Specialized Residential homes with a medical and behavior component that helps to meet the needs of the people residing in the homes. Each home has a four bedroom layout and each person has their own room. Our West Hills home is structured as an Adult Residential Home with four male individuals, all who moved from the Developmental Center System into their community setting.
The homes operate under the philosophy that each individual has the right to choose how their day is spent, who their staff is, and what community participation they are interested in. Employees working in the homes meet the requirements and experience level to work effectively with each individual.
A unique benefit for the homes is the infrastructure system that ensures all needs are met regarding behavior and medical challenges. PCS employs a full time Licensed Vocational Nurse who visits the homes at a minimum of 5 days per week and oversees all medical components of an individual’s care. In addition to the LVN, PCS utilizes several consultants including a Registered Dietician, Behavior Specialist, Visiting Doctor and Nurse Practitioner.
The PCS approach is to facilitate as much independence as possible for residents using a Person Centered format. Adaptations and accommodations will be made to facilitate learning and comfort.
