  • Nursing care – We believe that quality health care and prevention activities are central to the well being of those we support. UCP provides nurse case managers (R.N. or L.P.N.) who work with individuals enrolled in services, their families, physicians and UCP interdisciplinary team to assure ongoing access to community based medical and dental care
  • Behavior support – Helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities achieve a Life Without Limits begins with supporting the whole person, and engaging a support team of friends, family, and members of the UCP staff team to plan and work together to help an individual reach his or her full potential. Some folks need the support of a behavioral plan and staff skilled in applied behavioral analysis to assist them in realizing their dreams.
