Mobility for Independence
All Abilities provides service coordination for people with disabilities. For one individual, the installation of an overhead lift system in their bedroom helped to make daily living activities easier.
All Abilities Service Coordinator played an important role during the home modification process by helping the participant and family determine needs, obtain funding, and helped to select equipment and manage installation. The participant can now independently move safely throughout the home limiting the need of help from staff and family. All Abilities also helped the participant with van modifications for easier wheel chair access..
Thanks to the coordination of services provided by All Abilities, for this participant, life is now more accessible!

Greetings from the All Abilities Team,
Spring has finally sprung and not too far ahead is summer and June 30th, a key date for the new state initiative by Community Health Choices. As you know, in December, adults with disabilities receiving services in Southwest PA through state waivers were asked to select a Managed Care Organization to coordinate care. On June 30th, Managed Care Organizations will determine which Service Coordination Providers, like All Abilities, they will continue to use.
At All Abilities, our Service Coordination Staff work hard to offer quality service by working closely with you and your families to meet individual needs. We hope that you will continue to select All Abilities as your Service Coordination Provider. And in fact, you have the choice to request our services through your Managed Care Provider.
The team at All Abilities strives to ensure you remain living in your home and community, to be able to live and work as independently as possible. We are honored to serve you.
