Commonwealth Community Care provides consumer-directed, comprehensive, high-quality primary care in the most effective and cost efficient manner possible to adults and elders with complex physical, developmental, behavioral, and intellectual disabilities by reducing barriers to care and establishing highly personalized partnerships with them.
Commonwealth Community Care embraces the philosophy of the independent living movement, promoting independence and self-determination, and empowering individuals with disabilities to be active in decision-making about their care. We are committed to providing care that supports our patients and allows them to live as they choose, with maximum independence and self-sufficiency, in their homes and communities.
Commonwealth Community Care practitioners treat with primary importance the need to establish meaningful, consistent, and respectful engagement with the individuals they serve. We know that persons with disabilities often have a sophisticated understanding of the issues involved in their care and that, when we listen, we can make better decisions together.
Central to our model of care is to provide care in the environment chosen by the consumers we serve, whether that be in the home, medical office, or care facility. Commonwealth Community Care clinicians understand the physical, emotional, and social issues that affect the health of individuals with disabilities. That’s why our interdisciplinary team works closely with patients to focus on preventive health, prompt intervention for new issues, and monitoring of chronic conditions, while coordinating a range of services that support independent living. We strive always to seamlessly connect primary care, acute care, long-term services and supports, and behavioral health services through communication, person-centered planning and service coordination.
