Program Description
 
Mental Retardation Waiver Program
The Mental Retardation (MR) Waiver Program has been an active program offered by CCHHH&PH since 1994. The MR Waiver Program provides home and community-based services to children and adults diagnosed with mental retardation.

The MR Waiver Program is designed to assist families with keeping their mentally retarded family member in their own home with the highest degree of independence for as long as possible. CCHHH&PH provides Supported Community Living (SCL) services to the MR consumer who meets eligibility per the recommendation of the Crawford County Department of Human Services.

 The goals for SCL include personal and home skills training, individual advocacy, community skills development, and personal environment support. Although exceptions to policy can be made, a maximum of 52 hours per month of SCL is provided to the MR consumer.

CCHHH&PH Home Care Aides who provide SCL receive continuing education to meet the individual needs of the consumer. Skilled nursing is utilized when the consumer has a health condition that requires a doctor's order. Home Health Aide services are provided to the consumer in his or her family home and in the community, and are billed to Medicaid.
