Service Planning

  • Each client has a Collaborative Service Plan (CSP) that identifies: care needs, new objectives and goals.
  • The CSP is implemented using a team approach with the roles and responsibilities of each team member defined so that all elements and strategies of the CSP are implemented.
  • To ensure effectiveness of the services provided, the client and/or guardian retains the maximum amount of individual responsibility.
