What makes a Home a Dedicated Home?
Homes where two or more consumers sharing the same diagnosis/disability live are considered to be designated per that diagnosis or disability. For example, if two individuals living with brain injury live at the same home, that home is a designated Brain Injury Home. This designation indicates that there has been additional staff training related to the diagnosis. Internal consultants support the work of the staff in the home, and staff may have specializations or certificates. Consideration is also given to staffing levels, accessibility and the therapeutic aspect of the home environment.
While homes may have a designation, there may still exist a mix of diagnoses represented within the home. Intentional effort is given to matching the functional abilities, interests and special needs of consumers so that their living environment is a productive, positive and comfortable home. Case Managers and families advocate for the needs of the individual and REM Minnesota responds with options that provide high quality choices resulting in customer satisfaction.
