Our clients and families love Amie's Community Care.

“I really like working with Amie’s Community Care because I get to make new friends and I get to spend time with the ones I have already made through ACC.”

Client, Amie’s Community Care

“They are flexible, accessible/easy to talk to, they have a talent for working with neurodiverse people, and they have a newsletter.”

Client, Amie’s Community Care

“We had a poor experience with the first brokerage service we tried. They weren’t easy to reach or speak with. They were not knowledgeable about autism as they had claimed, and kept treating my son as if he had a physical disability and a general intellectual disability, neither of which is the case, and couldn’t adapt even after communicating these concerns.

Amie’s turned that all around. They are easy to reach and responsive, and as my son said, “they have a talent for working with neurodiverse people.” We experienced a noticeable increase in compassion from the people at Amie’s.

Here are some examples of practical ways they have helped my son: room organization, budgeting, meal planning, outings, recreation and companionship. Depending on your caregiver, some transportation may be possible (to go to a store or movie for example). Companionship with someone who sees and “gets” you may be the single most important positive impact, especially for people who are isolated and/or have social challenges. We are big fans of Amie’s.”
