PSCH Meets Specific Needs with Individual Residential Alternatives
Individual Residential Alternatives offer full-time supervision and flexible access to support services from the PSCH habilitation clinic or other community providers. Individuals receive the type and level of habilitative services that relate specifically to their goals and needs. Individuals are actively involved in meal planning, shopping, cooking, and planning their own activities and recreation.
Intermediate Care Facilities:
An Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) is a small group home with full-time supervision. The professional and paraprofessional staff, with the consumer and his or her family, develop an individual service plan, setting goals in areas of daily living skills, communication, socialization, effective emotional controls, and community integration. On-site services from a clinical team augment the residential staff in helping individuals achieve their goals.
Consumers leave the home on weekdays to attend day programs focusing on retaining skills and preventing regression. Staffing follows the ICF model, with special attention to medical issues common to a geriatric population. Activities focus on socialization and enjoying the resources of the community.
Independent Residential Apartments:
Offering personalized support with minimal supervision, PSCH's independent residential apartments (IRAs) provide the most independent housing option to consumers who have refined the skills necessary to live independently. Individuals work, travel and participate in their communities with minimal supervision. Staff members visit regularly to monitor and support the individual’s efforts to live on his or her own.
