Client focused quality of care!


 As an HHP, working with Spectrum

for the past 8 years, I can offer a perspective with regard to my client’s unique needs and challenges. Spectrum’s well informed staff foster an environment of positive and progressive supports which are strong, when needed, without crossing boundaries.

Spectrum’s Day Program successfully manages a delicate balance between client and HHP, working together, to expose many opportunities for my client’s interests, with safety and dignity in the foreground.”
