Our Services

Our Services

We strive to support our Clients by providing services that allow them to live in their own homes and be a part of their community. These services enable adult participants to make choices, receive needed services and live more independently in their own home or in the family home. We do whatever it takes to help our Clients live a fulfilled, successful life with as much autonomy as possible. My Life… My Choices!

Supported Living Services

Supported Living Services are for our most independent Clients who do not require assistance with medication administration.

Types of Supported Living Services we offer include:

Homemaker Services: We provide training and assistance with household tasks such as cooking, laundry, cleaning, and other household maintenance tasks.

Mentorship Services: We help our Clients with self-advocacy, understanding complicated health and safety issues, social and relationship issues, problem solving and decision making through methods like instructing, providing experiences, modeling, and advising.

Personal Care: We give assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) such as hygiene, bathing, eating, dressing, grooming, toileting, and transferring. With personal care support, you can even get help with shopping, money management, meal planning, grocery shopping, budgeting, and bill paying.

Supported Community Connections: We enable our Clients to attend typical activities and functions of community life such as community education and training, volunteering, learning to use public transportation, planning and attending events, and building relationships.

Supported Employment: Our Clients are empowered to work in a variety of employment settings in which participants interact with non-disabled individuals. Our services include job development, job coaching, one-on-one support and transportation to and from the work site. 

Transportation Services: We give assistance with transportation to and from activities through in-house options or through existing community transportation options.

Residential & PCA Services

Clients who need medical aid are better suited for our Residential & PCA Services. 

Residential Services

Our Residential Services provide our Clients with full-time care, but also empower them with the skills necessary to live independently within a supportive environment.

These services are offered in two different settings:

The two group homes offer a comfortable, family environment. We teach community skills such as cooking, cleaning, laundry, nutrition, safety, and hygiene.

We are available 24/7 for any needs that arise, and we work diligently to make all our Clients feel safe and secure in their homes. We also provide daily training to help our Clients be aware of their own strengths and weaknesses. Overall, we make it our mission to help Clients advocate for themselves as independent individuals who are involved, yet safe, in both their personal life and their community life.

Our group homes have a staff member on duty at the location 24 hours per day, seven days a week.

PCA Services

Individuals in their own apartments may receive services daily, as needed, through the Personal Care Alternatives program.

Individual needs are determined every year on a SIS assessment, and from there, individual PCA plans are created. We provide skill training for our Clients in whatever capacity is needed, until they have mastered the skills and can be successful in their day-to-day living. These skills are often related to financial literacy, nutrition, household shopping, medication, and socialization. We also provide transportation to and from doctor appointments, near and far.

Day Program and Supported Employment

Many individuals with disabilities are faced with unique challenges that prevent them from fully immersing themselves into their communities. Here at DDI, we are thrilled to offer a Day Program and Supported Employment Services to Clients in each of our programs.

Day Program

Our Day Program runs each week, Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

At our DDI Activity Center, some of our activities include crafts, music, dance, exercise, and money management education, education in social skills, holiday parties, and birthday parties.

Through our Community Connections Program, we offer trips to the library, the bowling alley, and other places throughout Burlington. We also partner on occasion with our local nursing home to provide social engagement activities, such as Bingo!

Additionally, we offer volunteer work opportunities to our Clients, which includes cleaning park bathrooms, helping at the annual fair, and assisting in animal welfare efforts.

Supported Employment Services

At DDI, we empower our Clients to engage in competitive work environments by giving them training, ongoing guidance and support in an effort to break down barriers and integrate into modern society.

Through our job coaching, job training, transportation assistance, and individually tailored supervision, we are able to help our Clients work in grocery stores, restaurants, and other locations within the community!

One of the many opportunities available to our Clients is the option to work at our DDI ice cream shop, Little Brick Creamery! It’s located at 397 14th St., Burlington, CO, 80807, and features ice cream, cinnamon rolls, and donuts! Give it a call at 719.346.7300.

Currently our main service is table and chair delivery. We provide these rental services to anyone in the community who needs tables and chairs for an event, whether it’s a wedding, family reunion, birthday party, or any other group gathering. Call us at 719.346.5367 to schedule your rental!
