With recent studies suggesting that 1 in 6 children between the ages of 3 to 17 in the United States have a developmental disability, CHES announces that it has expanded its services to help children with disabilities live easier and fuller lives. The team works with the individual’s primary care provider to design a customized plan of care that supports daily activities, events, and all other childhood moments.

As part of its updated DDA nursing support services, the group provides nursing consultations and nursing case management, and delegation solutions, all available to Self-Directed Services (SDS) members. The team’s goal is to build comprehensive care strategies that can make a positive impact on a community’s health through compassionate care for people with disabilities.
CHES uses the Health Risk Screening Tool (HRST) to identify or review clients’ health care level. The group also drafts healthcare protocols and develops regimes, establishes effective ways for communication with healthcare providers, and finds health-related resources available in their respective communities.
In addition, its team of licensed professionals makes nursing and self-administration assessments and oversees the training and work of the staff authorized to implement the tasks detailed in the individual’s care plan.
CHES also provides personal care services for older children. The nurses can assist clients with everyday tasks such as eating, bathing, or light housework. They may also do meal planning, feeding assistance, laundry, medication reminders, and assistance with walking and mobility.
All care programs are reviewed regularly to ensure that treatment plans are aligned with individual needs. The group’s goal is to allow clients to live as independently as possible with the highest quality of life.
All CHES staff meet the State of Maryland’s nursing requirements. They are continually trained to improve their skills and continue serving others with compassion and competency.
The group provides care for clients in Montgomery County and Prince George’s County.
A spokesperson for the group said, “Because CHES provides the highest level of care, we only hire personal care assistants (PCA) who exemplify compassion and empathy. Then we match them with clients based on personality and lifestyle, so you get a PCA that’s right for you.”
