Unlicensed Home & Community Services
Pittsburgh Mercy offers specialized, unlicensed home and community services to support individuals with intellectual disabilities who are living on their own or in their family’s home.
- Companion services emphasize the health and safety of the person. When the family cannot be home due to work or for other reasons, companions help individuals with their care and needs.
In-Home & Community Supports
- In-home and community supports empower a person to maintain or increase daily living skills at home or in the community.
- Available around-the-clock, respite services ensure the individual’s health and safety in the home when the family caregiver is away.
- Respite services are also available for persons in our community homes.
Companion, in-home and community supports, and respite services allow families to recruit and choose the person they want to provide services. After qualifying, the person is hired and paid by Pittsburgh Mercy Intellectual Disabilities Services.
We contract with specialists to provide behavioral support, as determined by families and supports coordinators.
We manage Port Authority bus passes or mileage reimbursement as specified in the Individual Support Plan (ISP).
