PLAN of Georgia assists individuals with severe and persistent mental illness; those with intellectual disabilities; and the at-risk elderly (i.e., people over 65 who are experiencing compromised functioning, impairments in thinking, and memory and organization difficulties.) PLAN cannot accept anyone who is presently a danger to themselves and/or others.
PLAN of Georgia offers long-term care for a loved one with mental illness via a contract made with his or her family. PLAN communicates with the family regarding all of the provided services on an ongoing basis; and PLAN can continue to manage and support the individual even after family is gone.
Step 1: An initial informational phone conversation
Step 2: A free in-person consultation with the family
Step 3: An intake meeting with the family and the prospective client after which the intake paperwork is completed, and an informed consent is signed
Step 4: A life care plan is developed. This can be either a) a long-term care plan to include quarterly meetings with the client and a PLAN clinician for rapport building and continued evaluation and update or b) immediate provision of service for those in current need of care management.
Step 5: The care plan is a living document which is updated over time. The goal is to manage finances in order to provide perpetual care while supporting the individual in achieving maximum psychological and physical health as well as independence and quality of life.
Is there a minimum or maximum number of hours or services that someone can receive from PLAN providers?
No, and it is possible to adjust the plan of care as the family’s and/or the individual’s needs change.
PLAN of Georgia does not provide housing but can assist clients in their search for appropriate living situations. PLAN has access to a wide range of resources both public and private that provide arrangements for those living with a mental disability.
Any adult disabled by a mental disorder is accepted, unless presently a danger to self or others.
We serve adults of all ages, but no one under the age of eighteen.
PLAN does not take insurance.
We guide our clients through the complex medical and mental health care system for the disabled, a system that is becoming increasingly difficult even for a well-functioning individual to navigate.
