One important decision that the Service and Support Administration (SSA) team can help you with is choosing a service provider. Your SSA can guide you through the number of service options available in Lake County. However, SSAs are not able to suggest one provider over another. YOU are the ultimate and final decision maker.
You SSA can help navigate the provider selection process. Individuals and caregivers have the right to choose any willing and qualified provider of home and community-based services.
Lake County Board of Developmental Disabilities/Deepwood is proud to provide a variety of services and opportunities while continually improving and enhancing the quality of those services. In 2017 the Board will define a Gold Star standard in reference to service quality, identify gaps in services and identify specialized providers to fill those gaps and meet the needs of the individuals served.
A list of providers meeting those standards will be maintained on the website for individuals and families to references when choosing providers for services.
