Individualized Family Supports and Community Living for Adults: A Case Study of a For-Profit Agency in Minnesota.
Racino, Julie Ann
This report is based on a site visit to a private, for-profit agency that provides community support services to people with severe disabilities in six counties in Minnesota. The organization supports 25 families in its in-home program and 35 people in supportive and semi-independent living services. Services offered include minor physical adaptations to the home, respite care, training and/or assistance in daily living skills, communication, socialization, recreation, consultation on day placement, physical and occupational therapy, psychological and psychiatric evaluation and consultation, nursing and medical services, and behavior management services. The report examines the organization's structure and personnel, outlines the service delivery process, offers descriptions of some of the organization's clients and homes, and notes some problems being faced by the organization.
