Committed to Helping Providers be Successful
What type of things will I do as a Provider?
Providers do a variety of tasks, which could include: light housekeeping, laundry, assisting and transporting individuals to medical appointments, grocery shopping, accessing activities in the community, assisting with personal care, etc. The particular services you will provide are based on the individual’s needs and their individual service plan (ISP).
Become a Provider
We partner with the Clearwater Council of Governments (Clearwater COG) to certify and train providers.
Provider Outreach Committee
OCBDD Provider Outreach group is comprised of county board staff who are committed to supporting the direct service professionals. The Provider Outreach committee was created through OCBDD focus on Good Life culture as a way to not only give DSPs the support, but in turn form a partnership between the provider and the county board.
Monthly & Quarterly Meetings
Our quarterly meetings will include DODD and county updates and processes as well as presentations by staff and highlighting the direct service professional, both agency and independent providers by asking them to share their stories at the quarterly meetings.
OCBDD wants to hear from you, the provider also. Each meeting ends with a Provider Roundtable. This is the opportunity to ask questions, tell the county board how you can best be supported, or to connect with peers.
The quarterly flyer is shared with the Clearwater Council of Governments for them to share the meeting notice and agenda with their email list. OCBDD is now sending out invitations to providers who have attended a meeting in the past, beginning with the June 2021 meeting. We also post the information on our Facebook page and this website.
