Counseling and other Professional Services


Professional program services are available to the people served by Gaston Residential Services to support them in their lives in the community.

Physical therapy, occupational therapy, recreation and leisure planning, communication services, psychological services and professional counseling are some of the services available to the people served by GRS.

For people living in independent, semi-independent, or Supported Living homes, professional program services are available on an as needed basis. If a formal program is needed by a person served from one of the professional services, the person will be evaluated and a program will be devised and reviewed by the professional.

All professionals practicing on behalf of the people served by GRS are expected to be licensed and certified in their respective areas according to the regulations governing their profession. Where certification is not regulated by the state, the federal ICF/MR guidelines serve as the criteria for the minimum requirements to serve in a professional area.
