In-Home Care for Developmental Disabilities
Providing Compassionate Assistance for Special Needs Adults
Seniors are not the only ones who may need assistance with the tasks of daily living. Individuals living with intellectual and developmental disabilities often require the services of a dedicated in-home caregiver, who can assist them with a wide range of tasks, from learning how to successfully navigate social situations to completing day-to-day routines.
If you’re currently supporting a person with intellectual or developmental disabilities, or if you live on your own as a developmentally disabled adult, finding the right caregiver can make all the difference. At Homewatch CareGivers of Beachwood, our team of Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) can offer a powerful combination of extensive experience and compassionate care. Each of our DSPs must commit to a thorough background check, drug test, and training program upon hire, with rigorous training and ongoing education requirements to complete each year.
Our highly-trained Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) can assist individuals with the following conditions and disorders, along with many others:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Down Syndrome
- Spina bifida
Fully bonded and insured, our DSPs have more than 75 years of combined experience assisting individuals who live with intellectual and developmental disabilities. By focusing heavily on community involvement and integration, we aim to enrich the lives of those with disabilities, and empower them to tackle more challenges with every passing day.

Customized Care in the Comfort of Your Home
If you’re a disabled person living alone, it can be extremely difficult to have all your physical needs met while enjoying a rich, integrated social life within the community. Many individuals with developmental disabilities also live at home with their family members, who then become required to act as primary caretakers. Although this can be a rewarding task, performing complex caregiving tasks puts a significant strain on a family’s time, resources, and emotional energy.
