Challenging behaviors can be exhibited by individuals with diverse disabilities and complex needs, manifesting as physical and/or verbal aggression or self-injurious actions.

At Committed Care Services, we understand that many of the individuals we support, who display challenging behaviors, have experienced multiple placement breakdowns and hospital admissions before finding a place with us. We prioritize appropriate safeguarding while empowering them to exercise control and make choices through proactive and positive behavior management, which includes vigilant risk assessment. We employ clear, multi-agency risk assessments and strategies, as well as increased supervision when necessary, to foster a sense of inclusion.

Behaviors are meaningful
forms of communication

We firmly believe that all behaviors are meaningful forms of communication. Promoting positive behavior is most achievable when individuals experience an exceptional quality of life, enabling them to:

  • Express their basic needs, choices, and preferences effectively.
  • Engage in suitable activities that cater to their unique needs.
  • Cultivate meaningful relationships with friends, family, and support staff.
  • Maintain good physical and mental health.
  • Pursue and achieve personal aspirations.
  • Develop new skills and gain independence.
  • Reside in an environment that caters to their physical, sensory, and social needs.

At Committed Care Services, we are committed to reducing restrictive interventions, including physical interventions and psychotropic medications, to ensure the well-being and autonomy of those we support. By focusing on enhancing the quality of life and providing comprehensive support, we aim to facilitate positive growth and personal development in each individual we serve.
