Orlando, FL, Tuesday, February 12, 2019 – GenCare Resources today announced it has opened a new division where they will work directly with APD to aid persons with developmental disabilities. The APD agency currently serves more than 50,000 Floridians.

This separate division will serve Floridians severely impaired by Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Intellectual Disabilities, Down Syndrome, Prader-Willi Syndrome, Phelan-McDermid Syndrome, among others. Children in the 3-5 age range who are at high risk of a developmental disability will also be served.

“My goal in my role is to promote, self-advocate and assist people with disabilities,” said Yari Aponte, the APD’s division director, “to become more independent and feel part of our community.”

GenCare has a fully trained staff that will help to carry out the mission of the agency where they will provide support to persons with development disabilities to live, learn and work in their communities. Their goal is to improve the quality of life for those who cannot easily help themselves, through personal support, life skill development and companionship.

The benefits of remaining at home rather than an institution is paramount to an individual’s wellbeing,” added Olive Gaye, President & Founder. “As advancement in medicine, improved safety measures and superior nutrition allows us to live longer, GenCare considers itself very privileged to be selected for the APD program which allows individuals in our communities to remain in their home for as long as possible.”
