Choosing Our Program
Our team of Case Management professionals and Nursing staff provide the majority of plan development and coordination of services. These well-trained teams complete all of the necessary documents to ensure your loved one’s continuation of care, including the IPC (Individual Plan of Care), ICAP (Inventory for Client and Agency Planning), IDRC (Intellectual Disability/Related Condition), IPP (Individual Program Plan) and several others that are required to be updated/completed and reviewed on a regular basis.
Before being accepted into our program and starting the process, families and guardians must meet certain pre-eligibility requirements .
- The potential resident must have a Determination of Intellectual Disability. This is usually performed around the ages of 3 to 6 and may have been arranged by the school system. The local authority can also schedule testing for you.
- Contact the Local Authority for your county to “sign” up for the HCS Interest List. The HCS “slot” list is 8-13 years long.
- The Local Authority can help you obtain other benefits WHILE WAITING for your HCS slot, including CLASS, Texas Home Living, or immediate ICF (6 bed group home) placement if available.
We're Here to Help
We understand that the process to find the right place for your loved one to live and grow can be difficult, stressful, and complex. Once we have confirmed your loved one is eligible for the HCS or ICF program, there are three steps we use to help you make the decision on whether or not our program is right for your family member: a phone inquiry and initial meeting, a scheduled tour, and a one-on-one Q&A session. Please use the information below to see how our process works in more detail.
