Title XIX I/DD Waiver Program
The Home and Community Based Title XIX I/DD Waiver Program targets those individuals diagnosed with an intellectual and/or developmental Disability, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, and others. The I/DD Waiver Program is designed to provide services to its members in their home and community settings in a less restrictive option than services found in an ICF/IDD facility.
Crisis Respite Unit
Southern Highlands Community Mental Health Center’s Crisis Respite Unit is a three bed co-ed facility that serves individuals with a developmental disability (DD), intellectual disability (ID), or the co-occurring conditions of I/DD and Mental Illness and/or Substance Abuse.
Developmental Disability Services
Waiver members also live in Supportive Sites with 2-3 individuals with developmental disabilities. These attractive well maintained homes are throughout the community and have 24 hour staff that help individuals with basic living skills, psychiatric/behavioral support, as well as nursing services to assist with medications for the Waiver members to live in their own home. We seek to ensure that the disabled person possesses the emotional and adaptive skills necessary to be active members of the community.
Adult Day Services
The Adult Day Services (ADS) Program is composed of two distinctive services designed to address the skill training and skill maintenance needs of the Mentally Ill and/or Developmentally Delayed depending on the individual needs of the consumer.
