At Dominion Care, we help individuals overcome challenges in their lives due to emotional, behavioral, and mental health issues. Each person is provided with individualized services and training so they can function as successfully and independently as possible.
Mental Health Skill Building for Adults
Dominion Care Services help adults overcome emotional, behavioral, and mental health challenges which result in significant functional impairments in major life activities and make it hard for them to live independently. Our one-to-one in-home services are a step up from less intensive services, such as traditional outpatient counseling. We provide a broad spectrum of skill sets and community resources tailored to the life and needs of each person so that they can better self-manage at home and within the community.
Individuals who qualify for Dominion Care services demonstrate the clinical need for our services and require individualized training to live independently. To qualify for our services an individual must have:
- a mental health diagnosis
- a previous psychiatric hospitalization or other treatment
- a recent prescription for psychotropic medication

By providing each person with unique customized tools fit for their lives and circumstances, our qualified mental health professionals help adults to enrich their daily lives and live as independently as possible. Skills that we focus on include, but are not limited to:

Life Skill Building for Adults
The healthcare system can be complicated and for those trying to balance chronic health concerns with everyday life, it can be overwhelming. Dominion Care’s Life Skill Building program is designed to help individuals avoid medical emergencies by coordinating appointments, helping to manage medications and providing a support system that creates opportunities for the best quality of life possible.
With Dominion Care’s Life Skill Building program, we aim to move individuals from a position of surviving to one of self-actualization and fulfillment. By addressing basic and psychological needs through skill development, individuals can better manage their physical and mental health. Some common skill areas are how to read doctor bills and set up payment arrangements, how to create a budget, how to coordinate routine care and establish a system for annual care and how to establish routines.
Dominion Care’s Life Skill Building program takes a team approach to success, wrapping each individual with a support system that includes their primary care coordinator at the health plan, the life skill building provider, the member’s team of care providers and any other identified supports such as specialists, primary care providers or therapists.
