HOME AND COMMUNITY HABILITATION
In-home and Community Support is a direct service provided in home and community settings to assist participants in acquiring, maintaining, and improving the skills necessary to live in the community, to live more independently, and to participate meaningfully in community life. Services consist of assistance, support, and guidance (physical assistance, instruction, prompting, modeling, and reinforcement) in the general areas of self-care, health maintenance, decision-making, home management, managing personal resources, communication, mobility, and transportation, relationship development and socialization, personal adjustment, participating in community functions and activities and use of community resources.
Companion services are direct services provided to participants ages 18 and older who live in private homes for the limited purposes of providing supervision or assistance that is designed to ensure the participant’s health, safety, and welfare or to perform activities of daily living for the participant. Companions may supervise, assist, or even perform activities for a participant that include grooming, household care, meal preparation and planning, ambulating, and medication administration in accordance with regulatory guidance and socialization.
IN-HOME RESPITE SERVICES
In-home respite services are direct services that are provided to supervise and support participants living in private homes on a short-term basis for planned or emergency situations, giving the person(s) normally providing care a period of relief that may be scheduled or due to an emergency.
This service is available for individuals ages 21 and older and includes comprehensive assessment, the development of and revisions to a behavioral support plan that includes strategies to support the individual based upon assessment, and the provision of interventions and training to individuals, staff, and caregivers. There are two levels of service that reflect the differing levels of provider qualifications and the needs of the individual.
