(HBW) Residential

Daily Living Support (DLS) Homes:

These homes are typically set up for 2 – 4 service recipients to share expenses and staff, typically where each service recipient has a bedroom of their own. The staffing pattern is designed to meet the needs of everyone living in the house. Special situation/circumstances can be addressed through the IDT process. Each service recipient in the home must require on average at least 8 hours of supervision/training per day.

Bills/expenses are split between the service recipients (except for personal purchases) so that expenses can be kept affordable. CAI handles the monthly expenses by fronting the money for each expense (i.e. rent, cable, phone, groceries etc.) then through receipts splits the expenses between the service recipients and then invoices those recipients for their share of the expenses. This way only one check has to be written by the service recipient or their representative payee.

Habilitation Training Specialist (HTS):

This service is provided in the DLS homes and in family homes. This service is caring for the individual based on the needs present, and is used to teach/train the service recipient on the training items listed in the Plan of Care.

This program is outcome based and those training goals and objectives are determined in the IDT meeting.
