Family Supports

Our family supports assist families, caregivers, and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism. These services provide aides to help individuals with their daily living activities and promote community inclusion. For many individuals, this help means they can maintain their independence and remain in their own homes.

For other individuals, we arrange companion services. These aides provide opportunities to socialize. Individuals can enjoy going out in the community, going shopping or out to dinner, and enjoying other recreational activities.

Once a month, we invite teens and young adults with high functioning autism to join our social group. We offer these young people the opportunity to be themselves in a fun, non-judgmental environment.

As a service to our individuals, Life Sharing families, and the families of the individuals we serve, MCAR has a dispensing pharmacy onsite in our Pre-Vocation building. MCAR is the only service provider in Mercer County to provide this service.

We also provide valuable information for families and caregivers. We serve as a resource on guardianship, planned giving, special needs trusts, and other ways to protect an individual’s financial assets.
