DFS Family Services provides strategic planning, training, and respite for parents and families managing the day-to-day life of a loved one with psychiatric disabilities. We advise parents on interventional treatment or rehabilitation strategies, functional management of disability in daily living, financial case management, and long term life care plans. Our primary service is initial case consultation, and followed with ongoing advising and training for parents to re-invigorate otherwise ineffective treatment for a loved one, intervene with a functionally 'stuck' family member, and design quality of life plans where none existed before. We also help aging parents plan for a future when they are gone and they need the peace of mind that their surviving adult child with disability has a healthcare and financial care plan.
Our services are specifically designed to serve the parent or family as our client; to avoid conflict of interest or blurred service boundaries, DFS acts as a qualified surrogate for the family, managing resources and vendors directly serving the family's loved one in her/his daily living. in vendor and resources management.
We serve parents and families nationwide, including psychiatric interventions, regional and national specialty treatment planning, and long term care planning.
