3 Qualities and Virtues to Practice When Dealing with Persons with a Developmental Disability


Caring for people who meet the service criteria for medicaid waiver services for cerebral palsy treatment, autism care, and other related programs can be challenging. Despite it being challenging, the care you provide is very important and the experience you get from providing care can also be very rewarding and life-changing. So if you are up to the challenge or already taking care of someone with a developmental disability, here are three qualities to practice to improve the quality of life for your patient and yourself.

  • Patience

    If you provide developmental disability care, like our developmental disability care services in Alaska, you must be patient. Persons with developmental disabilities understand things differently than you do, and that is not a bad thing, just be patient and understand their self-expression and mindsets.

  • Admiration

    Persons with disabilities are stronger than people think. Here at Bright Horizon homes, we would like to remind everyone to admire the strength and courage of persons with developmental disabilities. How they are able to live their lives to the fullest despite their limitation, how they preserver through the obstacles thrown at them and often times surpassing their own limitations.

  • Compassionate

    To be able to provide the best care whether at a facility or home care, like our residential homes in Wasilla, Alaska, compassion is a must. A compassionate caregiver genuinely wants to improve the quality of life of their patients. When you genuinely want to improve the quality of life of another person, you will be surprised at how much your life improves and becomes more fulfilling as well.
