Community Housing - Medically Fragile
Mainstream Living specializes in serving persons with a serious ongoing illness or a chronic health condition that requires daily monitoring and ongoing medical treatments and may include the routine use of a medical device or assistive technology. Persons with such needs receive overall care planning, that includes medical consultation as needed, to achieve optimum health and improved developmental status and to achieve community integration to the maximum extent possible. Services augment and support independence, empowerment, and dignity of persons served through the provision of flexible and efficient services.
Service design is based on the needs, desires, and expectations of the person served and includes consideration of age, medical acuity, activity interests and cultural awareness. The services support transitions in a person’s life and are changed as necessary to meet the identified needs and desires of the persons served and their families.
Some examples of the quality results desired by the different stakeholders of these services include:
- Development of an efficient and effective network of community support services including access to therapies and medical supports
- Achievement of personal development in health, wellness and activities of daily living
- Being able to choose and pursue meaningful activities in the least restrictive environment possible to achieve personal satisfaction in life activities
- Restored or improved functioning
- Enhanced quality of life
- Supported transitions between levels of care as needed
