Client Satisfaction Survey Results

Outcomes

Outcome 1: The group homes will provide 2 individual and 2 group activities per month to individuals residing in the homes 90% of the time as per measurement by month.  Due to COVID-19 this was measured for the first 8 months of the fiscal year only.  


  Individual Outings:   July 2019-February 2020

Spartansburg  72%

Worth Street 99%


Group Outings:   July 2019-February 2020

Spartansburg   75%

Worth Street 73%  with 4 persons; 81%  with 3 persons (one person often with family)

Combined:  July 2019-February 2020

Individual:  85% overall

Group:        78% overall


The Spartansburg home did not take the individuals out much during the cold weather in the evenings.  Three at Spartansburg are retired and do get out during the day time which is calculated in the above.  The data collected for both 1st and 2nd shifts.  Group outings with this home are difficult and not realistic due to 3 people in a wheelchair and one person who needs to have someone supporting him in order to walk.  One-on-one outings are possible.


Outcome 2:  Each home will offer a group activity 2 times per week 90% of the time as per measurement by month


Spartansburg  30 weeks with at least 2 in home activities

                       19 weeks with at least 1 documented in home activity


Worth Street   45 weeks with at least 2 in home activities

                        7 weeks with at least 1 in home activity


The above represents documented in-home activities.  During the months of March, April and June when individuals were stay at home, the number of activities increased from 2 times a week to every day.  Daytime and evening time individuals were engaged in multiple activities.  Van rides, walks in the community, games, picnics, crafts and movies all occurred.

Outcomes for 2020-2021 are:


The Spartanburg home will engage individuals in at least 1 individual outing a month.
