What Happens Next
All participants will assist in creating their own plan for return to independence with support of The Bridge staff. This work will begin early and will be a collaborative process between the participants, staff and community resources. It will also involve the participant’s family or other support and, whenever possible, a family session may be held to work collaboratively on the service plan and transition.
