Solution-Focused, Pragmatic Engagement
Over fiscal year 2011-2012, Caramore administered the UCSD Performance-Based Skills Assessment (UPSA). We assessed participants before admission, and again after they successfully completed the program. For those participants receiving both residential and vocational services, they were tested on their overall functionality with respect to Organization/Planning, Financial Skills, Communication Skills, Understanding of Public Transportation, Household Skills, and Medication Management.
Those participants admitted during fiscal year 2011-2012 that completed the program showed marked improvements in these domains, with the greatest improvement in Organization/Planning, Household Skills, and Financial Skills. After conducting T-scores to analyze the two test administrations, we can say with 98% confidence that they have improved markedly since their participation at Caramore. Our approach to helping our participants take ownership of their finances, households, and affairs of responsibility, is successful. We believe in natural consequences, intentional engagement, and wrap around support, all part of our clients becoming WISE.
Caramore participants would simply not be successful without the close relationship Caramore has with outpatient clinicians. For those participants we serve that do not have their own transportation, Chapel Hill has a free bus system enabling many of our participants to make it to their appointments on their own, but if they are unable to use the bus, we provide transportation as needed. We see the value in our clients attending medication management and therapy appointments. We keep up with adjustments to our participant's medications, monitor their symptoms, make sure they made it to appointments, and communicate with their outpatient clinicians to help them sustain their stability.
