Services are developed to meet the needs of the people at a level which facilitate their ability to be as independent as possible. Direct support staff (DSS) assist the people to be as independent as possible and to continue to live in their home. The individuals are assisted in many areas which include: daily living skills, communication training, leisure, money management, and socialization skills. Families and friends are welcome to visit at any time.
Pine Ridge Homes works to enhance the relationships which enrich the quality of life of the individuals we serve. The individuals love to be involved in community activities (sporting events, concerts, etc.). There are many individuals that participate in community education events (dances, activities, bowling, etc.). Some of our recipients, accompanied by direct support staff, have vacationed by plane to Florida, California and/or went on other trips by van (Ely, Minnesota; South Dakota; Michigan; Hayward, Wisconsin & Mall of America, MN), etc.
