We help people live successfully in their homes and communities by offering innovative supports that promote a meaningful life. Our numerous offerings are person centered and customized — responding to the hopes and dreams of the people we support.

An Overview of Our Supports For People

Person Centered Planning is an approach to empowering people to define the direction for their lives. Our planners support people in “drawing” a picture of the life they want to live, then we work together to figure out the best way to get there.

Participant Directed Programs promote choice, control, and independence. Participants purchase the goods and services they need, and hire, schedule and train caregivers of their own choosing.

Financial Management Services support people in Participant Directed Services by handling employee payroll, tax filing, and processing payments for purchased goods and services.

It doesn’t matter where you live.  It’s your home.  Mains’l can help.

For living, for learning, for life, we offer lots of choices that support your life decisions as you pursue your dreams.

Our behavioral and mental health professionals and nurses support people to develop their emotional, social, and physical wellness.

Person Centered Planning helps people discover what’s important to them. Working with individuals and those closest to them, our planners support people in “drawing” a picture of the life they want to live — and then work together to figure out how to best get there. Some things may already be present in their lives that they want to continue; other things may need to be changed. A Person Centered Plan is the guide for planning for the future they see for themselves.


Participant Directed Services

Participant Directed Services allow people flexibility and control over the resources that support their lives. Participants in these programs, or their representatives, take on the role of managing their own services and supports. They serve as the “employer.” Participants purchase the goods and services they need, and hire, train, schedule and supervise caregivers of their own choosing. Mains’l offers a variety of Participant Directed options.

If you are self-directing your own supports, Mains’l offers financial management services to help you pay the employees who support you. We also process any payments for the goods and services you purchase to help you live the way you have “self-directed.” Hiring a financial management services agency is needed when participating in Participant Directed Services, and Mains’l would be honored to be your partner in maximizing your supports.

Health and Wellness Supports

There are times when our experiences are keeping us from being as healthy or happy as we want to be. Our nurses, behavioral and mental health professionals can help you pursue positive habits and interactions with the world around you. We listen, offer guidance, and together we will develop a wellness plan that works for you.

My story: "A happy child means a happy family"

My family and I are so thankful for self-directed services. Our-5-year old son has autism and is non-verbal. Due to his communication and sensory needs, there have been many challenges. But because of the support we receive from Mains'l, we have been able to use resources through the Participant Directed Services program to support our son's needs. Mains'l has been amazing at responding to emails and phone calls right away and giving us guidance when we need extra help!  Our lives have been less stressful as we continue to create an environment at home that meets the needs of our special son. This has been a huge blessing to our son and our family.
