Narrative

The LifeLinks Community Services team supports more than 50 mild to moderately developmentally disabled adults who live in their own apartments or with a roommate in the Greater Lowell area. Services are available 7 days a week and can range from as few as 2 hours per month to as many as 2 hours per day depending on the level of need.

Case management staff provide individuals with valuable assistance and training on decision making, shopping, meal preparation, homemaking, money management, social skills, use of public transportation, and the planning of leisure activities. Case managers coordinate and monitor medical and dental care, oversee benefit plans (Mass Health, fuel assistance, housing subsidies) and act as liaisons with an individual’s employer, if necessary.
