Individualized Residential Alternative (IRA)

Liberty Resources operates fourteen Individualized Residential Alternatives (IRAs) located throughout Madison and Onondaga Counties. In these residential settings, 4-6 individuals live with staff support to increase their participation in the activities of their daily lives.

The scope of services are designed to increase a person’s independence and to prepare each person to live more independently. Employees are trained in CPR/First Aid, medication administration procedures, crisis intervention techniques, and provide 24 hour oversight. Registered nurses provide essential oversight at each home. They also act as a resource for all employees, working to ensure the highest quality of medical care, and a vital link to physicians and other medical providers.

All individuals create goals for themselves based on their unique desires. Every six months a formal meeting is held to review a person’s progress and/or make changes that will benefit each individual.
