We are focused on our mission to assist individuals with I/DD to get the supports and services they need to live a quality life.
The Care Design NY mission is to assist individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD) to get the supports and services they need to live a quality life.
To ensure people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD) enjoy: meaningful relationships with friends, family, and other in their lives; experience personal health and growth; and live in the home of their choice and fully participate in their communities.
Compassion: The capacity to appreciate what others think and feel. The recognition of the worth of each person and the treatment of individual rights and preferences with respect, honor, and fairness.
Diversity: The commitment to foster an environment of respect and inclusion for employees, members, families and all stakeholders.
Excellence: The continual emphasis on innovation, increasing knowledge, and delivering the highest quality supports and services.
Honesty: The foundation of which trust is built and truth is communicated.
We are committed to our role as a Care Coordination Organization/Health Home (CCO/HH). We believe each Care Design NY member has the potential to live a quality life through the careful planning and delivery of supports and services that includes medical, behavioral health, community resources, and natural supports.
Individuals and families are at the center of all we do at Care Design NY. We will assist you, and advocate with and for you, to ensure that you have information and resources to make informed choices in your life.
We will work in partnership with you to achieve the life you desire, ensuring that you have access to the support and services that are needed by providing Health Home Care Management.
