Supporting caregivers in the community
Caring for someone with an intellectual or developmental disability (I/DD) can require around-the-clock effort. And all caregivers deserve opportunities for a break and for education on relevant topics as the person you're caring for grows. YAI offers services to family members or other caregivers in their own neighborhoods or communities. These supports are geared toward empowering caregivers to deliver quality care with confidence.
Caregivers need to take breaks, and YAI is here to help. We offer both in-home and site-based opportunities where skilled staff can support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) so you can have time to yourself.
Knowledge is power. Whether you’re supporting someone through puberty or navigating a transition to greater independence, learn with our skilled facilitators about a variety of topics to make you the best caregiver you can be.
Disruptive behaviors can impact home life and affect people's ability to go about their daily lives. YAI provides assistance with learning how to deal with challenging behaviors when they occur and prevent them from happening in the first place.
YAI has a broad range of services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). From residential, day programs, and schools, to kitchen skills, crisis services, and independent living supports for people in the community.
