Client Satisfaction Survey Results

See attached summary



Group home outcomes focused on residents participate in community activities.  Outputs were the total number of activities attended, both individually and in a group, and group activities at the home.  The target goals were that the group homes would:


1.   Provide 2 individual and 2 group activities per month to individuals residing in the homes 90% of the time as per measurement by month. 


2.  Offer a group activity in each home 3 times per week 90% of the time as per measurement by month.


Outcome#1: Individual and Group outings


Individual Outings:

            Spartansburg:  31/48 or 65%

            Worth Street:   34/36  or 94%

Group Outings:

            Spartansburg:  31/48 or 65%

            Worth Street:  35/36 or 97%



Individual:  62/84 or 74%

Group:        66/84 or 79%


Spartansburg staff did not take the individuals out much during the cold weather in the evenings.  Two at Spartansburg are retired and do get out during the day time which is not calculated in the above.  The data is only collected for second shift 3-11 and week-ends to be considered for this outcome


Outcome #2:  In-house outcome:  3 activities per week

The observation was that staff did engage individuals in in-home activities during this past year more than previous years; however, three times a week did not occur each week.  One or two activities occurred most weeks and some weeks three activities did occur.


Expectations for the coming year


1.       The target for the 1st Outcome for next year will  be at 90% for both individual and group outings but those retired who do outings during the day will have their outings counted for group or individual outings.


2.      The target for the 2nd Outcome for next year is for each home will be to have 2 group in-home activities each week.


3.      It is expected that a Program Specialist will be hired. 



Anticipated challenges for the coming year include:


1.      Transition group home to Credible


2.      Bringing more creativity into the homes
