Planning Ahead For Your Loved One

June 15, 2018 – Florida’s active aging residents are familiar with the longstanding fact that Florida continues to lead the nation as the number one retirement state. We know it’s for the balmy weather and beaches, recreation, cost of living, healthcare options…, but did you know many retire here because it’s easier to care for their aging child or sibling with a development disability?

“For decades we’ve had families retire to Central Florida from other states for our residential care and day training services,” said Steven DeVane, Duvall Homes’ CEO. Aging caregivers have turned to Duvall Homes since 1945 as they plan ahead for their own care and their aging dependent with special needs – both who are living longer.

With Duvall being a short scenic drive from The Villages, John Knox Village of Central Florida, Daytona’s new Latitude Margaritaville and numerous other retirement communities, more families are taking advantage of the programs and services at Duvall’s 16 group homes and day training center.

March 21, 2018 – Another busy day last week in our ADT Workshop fulfilling bulk mailers at Duvall’s Opportunities Enrichment Center.

While Duvall Homes’ ADT Workshop completes contracts on its Glenwood campus for the contracting business, ADT participants develop social and vocational skills that empower them to become independent members of our community’s workforce who earn a paycheck.

The Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment acknowledges that employers who appreciate and value individual differences, benefit from varied perspectives on how to confront business challenges and achieve success.

Those organizations who recognize the unique attributes and experiences people with developmental disabilities bring to their workforce reap a multitude of benefits by creating an inclusive positive environment and a cohesive confident team.

Since disability is a natural part of diversity, businesses can benefit by taking steps to ensure people with disabilities are represented in their workforce. What Can You Do Campaign?
