Consumers on the Medicaid waiver program live in residential housing within the community. In this setting the Consumer would have one to two roommates.
Each Consumer would have their own bedroom. All Consumers would all share communal areas of the dwelling such as bathrooms, living area, and kitchen. All bills, including rent, are divided equally between the Consumers.
Phoenix Community Services provides Direct Support Professionals in the home 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The Direct Support Professional is trained and tested implementing state of Indiana guidelines. The DSP is always present with the Consumers and will help all individuals with their daily living skills. They will help the Consumers with (included but not limited to) cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, personal hygiene, and how to be more independent. Taking, administering, and recording of vitals and medication are also provided.
Phoenix coordinates all doctor’s appointments and provides transportation there by ensuring up to date medical care for the Consumer. Phoenix Community Services Medical Department will coordinate and implement any Physicians orders pertaining to the consumer.
Phoenix Community Services also works with Consumers who receive CHIO services under the waiver program. Phoenix Community Services will provide a one-on-one Direct Support Professional to come to the residence, pick up the Consumer and take them out into the community. While in the community, the DSP is there to assist the Consumer in becoming more involved and acclimated into society. This includes but is not limited to learning to do their personal shopping, practicing pedestrian skills, experiencing new and fun adventures such as going to the movies or a concert, going out to eat or to the park. These activities allow the Consumer to gain confidence and become a more integrated member of society.
