UNDERSTANDING OUR ORGANIZATION
TEAM Consulting is a for-profit sole proprietor LLC that is in its twentieth year of operation. The agency has experienced many changes over the years. Our average staff size is less than 12 staff, as we operate as a small family unit. We began 2002 as a vendor for the Ohio Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Bureau of Workers Compensation, Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services, Ohio Dept of Mental Heath and as private consultants.
The population we serve ranges from adults, high school students and youth with various disabilities. We have served individuals with physical disabilities, however, the majority of individuals we work with are developmentally disabled, mentally ill, or are learning disabled. Our time with each consumer varies depending on the services provided. The referring agent for each service we provide authorizes our time with the consumer, unless private pay. In 2009 Supported Employment services and Adult Day Support Services began and the Bethesda campus was purchased to accommodate persons served in these programs. TEAM Consulting is now a Medicaid waiver provider and contracts directly with local County Boards. CARF accreditation and rehabilitation services ceased in 2018..
In 2012 Creating HOPE was established as a subsidiary agency to separate the employment of persons served with parent agency, TEAM Consulting LLC. Creating HOPE is a Holistic Health Spa in Guernsey County and provides many services for relaxation and stress relief, as well has teaching Mindful living skills to consumers. Clients of TEAM Consulting have attended Yoga classes and attended workshops at the spa.
As many aspects of operations maintained a focus on Wellness, we identified these needs as an important part of service prevision. It was also apparent awareness is needed in all persons’ lives. We began developing fitness and corporate wellness programs in 2015 to service both persons with disabilities and the average person or Corporate America. Our CEO is a Holistic Health Practitioner therefore, various aspects of Fitness and Wellness have been incorporated in both TEAM Consulting and Creating HOPE. In 2018 we started training staff as DSWP with WELLNESS as the core of our programs.
In addition to the core agencies, TEAM TERROR FITNESS was developed in 2017 and is serving people on more of a training basis opposed to a service delivery style. As the need and interest has grown it was determined a fitness center will be established in Belmont County. The fitness center was created based on a partnership with one of our trainers Travis “The TERROR” Clark, as he is the Heavy Weight Boxing Title holder in WV (stage name “TERROR”) and has worked in many capacities with our I/DD consumers, a heavy emphasis has been placed on MMA combined fitness groups. Our Fitness and Wellness complex was opened Summer 2019 in Morristown. We have incorporated a holistic approach to all services and continue to provide integration as all of our services and programs at the fitness center are open to the public. The Modified Mixed Martial Arts Sports Association, MMMA derived from this program in 2020 and now is offered in our facilities.
Creating Hope Arts and T's operate off a grant from BCBDD in 2020-2021 - look at our FB for info.
WE MOVED ALL DAY OPERATIONS TO 201 W CROSS ST MORRISTOWN IN SUMMER 2021
WE BELIEVE OUR MULTI-AGENCY APPROACH ENCOMPASSES ALL AREAS OF WELLNESS and WHAT WE CAN’T DO OUR PARTNERS IN THE COMMUNITY CAN!
Why an Overall WELLNESS Focus?
As we defined what is Wellness it became apparent we needed to assist people with all areas possible to develop healthy life styles and forever living skills.
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. "...a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
Wellness is much more than merely physical health, exercise or nutrition. It is the full integration of states of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The model used by our campus includes social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual and physical wellness. Each of these seven dimensions act and interact in a way that contributes to our own quality of life.
SEVEN DIMENSIONS OF WELLNESS
Social Wellness is the ability to relate to and connect with other people in our world. Our ability to establish and maintain positive relationships with family, friends and co-workers contributes to our Social Wellness.
Emotional Wellness is the ability to understand ourselves and cope with the challenges life can bring. The ability to acknowledge and share feelings of anger, fear, sadness or stress; hope, love, joy and happiness in a productive manner contributes to our Emotional Wellness.
Spiritual Wellness is the ability to establish peace and harmony in our lives. The ability to develop congruency between values and actions and to realize a common purpose that binds creation together contributes to our Spiritual Wellness.
Environmental Wellness is the ability to recognize our own responsibility for the quality of the air, the water and the land that surrounds us. The ability to make a positive impact on the quality of our environment, be it our homes, our communities or our planet contributes to our Environmental Wellness.
Occupational Wellness is the ability to get personal fulfillment from our jobs or our chosen career fields while still maintaining balance in our lives. Our desire to contribute in our careers to make a positive impact on the organizations we work in and to society as a whole leads to Occupational Wellness.
Intellectual Wellness is the ability to open our minds to new ideas and experiences that can be applied to personal decisions, group interaction and community betterment. The desire to learn new concepts, improve skills and seek challenges in pursuit of lifelong learning contributes to our Intellectual Wellness.
Physical Wellness is the ability to maintain a healthy quality of life that allows us to get through our daily activities without undue fatigue or physical stress. The ability to recognize that our behaviors have a significant impact on our wellness and adopting healthful habits (routine check ups, a balanced diet, exercise, etc.) while avoiding destructive habits (tobacco, drugs, alcohol, etc.) will lead to optimal Physical Wellness.
