At The MENTOR Network our goal for each person we serve is the same: achieving positive outcomes, including increased independence, participation in community life, and overall happiness. That’s why we develop evidence-based models of care and deliver industry-leading services through our network of compassionate, highly trained staff.
For all of The Network’s services, our clinical experts develop Individualized Service Plans (ISPs) that are continually monitored, measured, and adjusted as each person reaches new heights.
Enhancing Quality of Life for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
Our comprehensive continuous quality improvement program helps us continually assess the impact of our services on the lives of the individuals we support. To help ensure that we are meeting our commitments to those we serve, we administer a rigorous survey process that focuses on metrics and data to help inform and enhance the delivery of services.
Helping Families Stay Together
In our effort to keep families together whenever possible, The Network utilizes Family Centered Treatment® (FCT)—an evidence-based model developed over a 20-year period. Introduced as a cost-effective alternative to out-of-home placements, FCT has proven to be a highly effective family preservation model. We see the difference our services are making in the lives of families every day and our data demonstrates powerful outcomes:
Based on The MENTOR Network’s 2018 Family Centered Treatment® outcome data for engaged families
Currently, The MENTOR Network delivers services using FCT in Maryland, Massachusetts and Ohio and is continuing to bring this innovative model to states across the country.
Proven Success for People with Brain Injury
In our specialty rehabilitation services—specifically those delivered by our partner, NeuroRestorative—outcome measurements play a vital role in helping to establish individual rehabilitation goals. They also measure progress as participants move through their programs. For our payors and families, outcome measurements help assess overall effectiveness of the services received and can lead to necessary adjustments of care plans.
Our outcomes demonstrate powerful improvements for the individuals we serve on the road to independence. Using the Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory version 4 (MPAI-4) our outcomes show that our programs lead to significant improvements across a myriad of domains for those we serve.
Why are the scores going down? The decreased scores show a reduction in disability. In other words, our participants increased their levels of independence as their scores decreased. Learn more
All of NeuroRestorative’s subacute programs use the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) scale, which assesses physical and cognitive disability. This scale focuses on the burden of care, or the level of disability indicating the level of direct care required to support an individual. Items are scored on the level of assistance required for an individual to perform activities of daily living. Learn more
