Family Support Worker (FSW)
Strengthening community support and resources for adults with developmental disabilities
Family Support Workers (FSWs) address the needs of adults with developmental disabilities living with their family as well as some individuals who do not live with family and are unable to direct their own care.
- Learn about you, your family, and what is going on in your life right now
- Help identify goals that are important to you and your family
- Develop a plan for how everyone will work together to achieve your goals
Participation in the service is voluntary. Everyone has an important role and all are expected to participate in working toward the goal(s). The FSW service is time limited – as service concludes, other ways of staying in touch and receiving support will be offered.
