Connecting with LifePath
02-26-2018
Posted by: Kimberly Kratz

Devoted. Caring. Patient. Gentle, but strong-spirited. Kind.

 

These words describe the staff who care for the individuals at LifePath. Annette Kaiser, Communications and Development Director said, “With over 850 employees including 72 nurses on staff, we provide direct care to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities through group homes, day programs and various community-based services.”

 

LifePath, with hubs in Sellersville, Bethlehem, and Drexel Hill serves individuals with a broad spectrum of function and ability. People who are diagnosed with intellectual and development disabilities ranging from mild autism to cerebral palsy, to those who need 24-hour medical care and supervision can enjoy the world through its services. 

 

Connecting with Community 

 

This year’s LifePath theme, Connecting with Community, serves to create opportunities for its consumers to actively participate by making new friends and forging more relationships with individuals and businesses. This initiative seeks to make mobility easier by adding adaptive equipment such as van back up cameras or replacing ramps to accommodate heavier use. 

 

While Pennsylvania’s newest mandate requires that individuals in care spend 25 percent of their time in the community, Kaiser said. “We have always been out in our community attending fairs, movies or other community activities.”

 

Though basic services are funded by both state and federal government, time and material donations bridge gaps for upkeep like painting, roof and sidewalk repair, or kitchen replacement. 

 

On June 2, 2018, LifePath consumers, families, staff, and supporters will join 26 non-profits in the Highmark Walk for Healthy Community. LifePath also hosts a summer golf outing and its popular fall fundraising luncheon that attracts 600-700 supporters each year.

 

“We’re always looking for good people to come work for us. Our employees receive full benefits, tuition reimbursement and we recently increased our starting wage,” Kaiser said.
