& Direct Care Team
Achieve employs specialists who can provide insight and knowledge specific to their expertise. There is no need to bill health insurance or Medical Assistance for these services.
The Restorative Aide focuses on occupational therapies such as massage, pressure point stimulation, aromatherapy, and auditory therapy to improve motor skills and provide sensory experiences. The Restorative Aide is supervised by a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA).
Stimulation of pressure points
When a person does not have the skills to communicate how they feel or do not understand what is appropriate in a particular setting, unwanted behaviors may occur. Our behavior specialist evaluates individual behaviors and situations to determine the most positive and consistent approach to addressing unwanted behavioral issues.
Achieve contracts with a registered nurse who advises staff on participant illnesses or health concerns. The nurse also supervises medication administration.
Transportation to and from the program and community job sites is a part of Achieve’s basic program service.
Achieve operates multiple buses with wheelchair lifts, vans, and cars to help participants travel to and from work each day. Drivers are employed by Achieve and receive the same training as program staff.
Participants who do not require transportation assistance may elect to use public transportation such as Metro Transit or the Anoka County Traveler to travel to and from work.
