We provide a variety of support services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who participate in the Medicaid Waivers; Family Support and Community Integration and Habilitation Waivers
Respite services are provided to individuals unable to care for themselves that are furnished on a short-term basis in order to provide temporary relief to those unpaid persons normally providing care. Respite Care can be provided in the individual’s home or place of residence, in the respite caregiver’s home, in a camp setting, in a DDRS approved day habilitation facility, or in a non-private residential setting (such as a respite home).
PARTICIPANT ASSISTANCE AND CARE
Participant Assistance and Care (PAC) is provided in order to allow individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities to remain and live successfully in their own homes, function and participate in their communities and avoid institutionalization. PAC services support and enable the individual in activities of daily living, self-care, and mobility with the hands-on assistance, prompting, reminders, supervision and monitoring needed to ensure the health, safety and welfare of the individual.
COMMUNITY BASED HABILITATION
Community Based Habilitation - Individual and Group (CHIO) are services provided outside of the individual’s home that support learning and assistance in the areas of: self-care, sensory/motor development, socialization, daily living skills, communication, community living, and social skills. Community based activities are intended to build relationships and natural supports.
Residential Habilitation (RHS) provides support services and/or supports which are designed to ensure the health, safety and welfare of the individual, and assist in the acquisition, improvement, and retention of skills necessary to support participants to live successfully in their own homes.
Wellness Coordination services means the development, maintenance and routine monitoring of the waiver individual’s Wellness Coordination plan and the medical services required to manage his/her health care needs. Wellness Coordination services extend beyond those services provided through routine doctor/health care visits required under the Medicaid State Plan and are specifically designed for participants requiring assistance of an RN/LPN to properly coordinate their medical needs.
Transportation enables waiver individuals to gain access to any non-medical community services, resources/destinations, or places of employment, maintain or improve their mobility within the community, increase independence and community participation and prevent institutionalization as specified by the Individualized Support Plan and plan of care.
