Services are provided through direct support staffing patterns that allow persons needing more assistance to remain in their community. Staffing may be up to 24 hours per day. This service is funded through the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver. We currently also have 3 licensed Residential Care Facilities for the Intellectually Disabled (RCF/ID).
Independent Living Programs
These programs are for persons with intellectual disabilities or developmental disabilities who are able to live semi-independently in the community with support services. Training and assistance, offered by support staff, enables the member to learn new skills that promote personal growth.
Respite is provided for both children and adults- under either the ID or BI waiver, usually in an hourly setting. This provides an opportunity for the family to have a break from the care of their individual.
Consumer Directed Attendant Care (CDAC)
This program is designed to help members do things that they would normally do for themselves if able. This program is provided under the ID or BI waiver.
This program provides support to members with a mental health diagnosis- either in a daily site or in the Independent Living program. Staff provides support to the members so they may live and be a part of their community.
Brain Injury Program
We primarily provide hourly support to persons with Brain Injuries. In some instances, we have been able to provide daily assistance- contact the local office for additional information.
The Crest Services program in Minnesota also provides semi-independent living services (SILS) by providing training and assistance in skills and/or activities which are needed to maintain and improve an adult, with intellectual disabilities or a related condition, ability to live in the community.
