Open Doors for Multicultural Families (Open Doors or ODMF) provides culturally and linguistically relevant information, services, and programming to culturally and linguistically diverse families of persons with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The families we serve are often immigrants, refugees, and/or people of color. We accomplish this using a “cultural brokering” model. Our staff come from the same culture and speak the same language as the families they serve, and so are able to communicate with the family in their own language, and in a way that will make sense within their cultural context. Additionally, these staff are knowledgeable of disabilities services, Special Education, and other mainstream social services, and to bridge the gap between the families we serve and the services they need. Currently, our bilingual/bicultural Family Support Staff provide services in English, Spanish, Somali, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, Arabic, Vietnamese, and Khmer.

The African American Elders Program, run by Catholic Community Services, serve older B/AA who are home bound, hard to serve, low income, and have chronic and/or severe disabilities, living with dementia and related disorders, and are at high risk of premature institutionalization. The program specializes in providing culturally competent and sensitive care specific to B/AA that have lived in a high crime environment and with a lifetime battling discrimination and racism.

The Care Coordinators (CC's) are Master's-prepared Geriatric Social Workers who identify with the long-term effects of racism. They provide assistance to clients who have deficits of one activity of daily living (ADL) and/or two Instrumental (IADL's) deficits; and are unable to access services on their own; and do not have anyone to help them assess these services.

Care Coordination includes conducting a comprehensive assessment that focuses on cognitive and functional areas, evaluation of social circumstances, and resources. The assessment also includes medical diagnosis, nutritional concerns, emotional issues, medication management, safety, support, caregiver needs and continuous support with healthcare providers. This assessment leads to the development of a service plan and implementation. The care coordinators continue to follow-up and monitor the outcomes and status of the service plan for optimal outcomes and to amend service plans as needed.

Follow-up activities includes: home visits, telephone, and electronic communications with clients or their representatives.

Community Peer Respite Planning Council
0.0

In times of crisis, individuals may feel alone or overwhelmed by their emotions, such as anxiety, panic, anger, fear, sadness, lack of control, and extreme experiences. At a peer respite people can turn crisis into wellness. With increased skills and peer support individuals may reduce or eliminate the effects of pressures that may cause overwhelming emotional distress. Community Peer Respite Planning Council os a grassroots, peer-led group developing and advocating for a peer respite in King County, WA.

A peer respite is a voluntary, short-term overnight program that provides non-clinical peer support for individuals to find understanding and ways to move through crises. Peer respite operates 24 hours a day in a home-like environment that has at a minimum, a kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, living room space, and individual bedrooms. Peer respite serves individuals who are 18 years or older who are able to perform activities of daily living. A person interested in using the peer respite must self-refer, and people can leave the peer respite to go to work, appointments, meetings, etc. The peer respite is staffed 24/7 by individuals who have common life experiences with the people they are serving.

Community Peer Respite Values

  • Self-determination - We strive for individuals to make choices, achieve autonomy and be the expert of their wellness.
  • Mutuality - We support one another towards a common goal while respecting individuality and choice.
  • Respect - We embrace certain rights such as confidentiality. We recognize that respect may have different meanings and we appreciate those differences. We are aware that language matters. We appreciate this space and use it with care.
  • Wellness - We believe that wellness is defined individually and can be achieved with support and encouragement.
  • Community - We support individuals to seek out and make contact with others at the peer respite and within their community of choice as a way to find purpose and belonging.

Benefits of a Peer Respite

  • Provides peer support, which is affordable, effective and peer oriented.
  • Peer respites can prevent trauma that may occur with hospitalization: coercion, forced treatment, loss of dignity and loss of housing and employment in the community.
  • Peer respite is a community support.
  • Peer respite expands and diversifies available crisis services.
  • Peer respites can integrate emotional, spiritual, behavioral, and physical aspects of a person.
