What is OFS?

Options for Services (OFS) is a program of Innovative LIFE Options.  It provides individuals and their support networks who manage their own services the option of contracting out administrative tasks.   It is a service available to individuals all over the province.

Individuals and their support networks can contract with OFS to complete tasks that are either too time consuming, require a specific skill set or that they simply do not want to do. By doing this, support networks have more time and energy to enjoy their relationship with the individual instead of completing the functions surrounding his or her life.

Some examples of how OFS has been helpful to individuals and their support networks:

  • Placing ads, screening applicants, interviewing, coordinating mandatory trainings and checks.
  • Reviewing job descriptions and completing orientation checklists with new employees.
  • Creating documents such as job descriptions, training plans, or staff schedules.
  • Problem solving and goal setting with employees for a general or specific purpose.
  • Coordinating and leading staff meetings.
  • Completing performance evaluations.
  • Assisting with payroll and staff scheduling.
  • Coordinating medical appointments, keeping track of and ordering medical supplies.
  • Observing and providing feedback on improvements to systems.
  • Mentoring and supervising employees.
  • Coordinating details of a move, vacation, or wedding.
OFS is not designed to be an emergency on call system nor will be the contact person to help fill or work last minute shifts. OFS will not make decisions on behalf of individuals and support networks, instead will carry out the act as instructed. 

Fees

There is a fee for the service and can include the cost of mileage.
