A Brighter Choice is a SCL (Supports for Community Living) provider located in Danville, Kentucky. A Brighter Choice provides quality services through the HCBW (Home and Community Based Waiver) which supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The goal of this medical waiver program is to provide people with an opportunity to live in communities as an alternative to institutions. Our program encourages participants to become a part of the community they call home.
A Brighter Choice strives to enhance the lives of the people we support by providing skilled, caring, and respectful staff. The philosophy of A Brighter Choice is that all of the participants in our program are unique and we are very committed to considering the needs of ever person individually.
“To provide the best opportunity for individuals to succeed in the communities that they have decided to call home. A Brighter Choice ensures the dignity of every person they support while empowering them to establish ties to their communities through both work and socialization. We respect, encourage and appreciate each person’s rights to be individual and be the primary decision maker in their lives.”
A Brighter Choice will assist the participant in identifying coordinating, and the arrangement of their person centered team. A Brighter Choice will facilitate the meetings that will assist a participant to develop, update and monitor their Person Centered Plan of Care. The participants’ person centered service plan will reflect the principles and tools of self-determination to assist a participant in creating supports and services that are designed to meet their needs and above all, promote choice, community experiences, employment and personal satisfaction.
The participants we support will be engaged in the greater community. Their integration into the community will be individualized, respecting their choices, and having opportunities to seek employment and work in competitive, integrated settings. Our ultimate goal is that the recipient of services, through A Brighter Choice, will receive all their services in their community to the same degree of access as any other community member.
