Community Paramedics is a pilot project funded in part through the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council and the federal Administration for Community Living to help Floridians with I/DD and their families access healthcare. A Medical Director oversees this initiative.
Home visits to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families is the primary service offered by Community Paramedics in Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties. Visits typically include a basic health and safety assessment, education about and administration of vaccinations, and referrals to needed services. The program is free.
