Through Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADs) waiver programs, MHMR provides residential assistance: group homes, foster care, and supported home living.
Foster Care provides a supervised, 24-hour living arrangement in an adult foster home for people who are unable to continue living independently in their own homes because of a physical, mental or emotional limitation. Foster care providers and residents live in the same household and share a common living area. With the exception of family members, no more than three adults may live in the foster home unless the state licenses it. The person receiving services pays the provider for room and board. Services provided:
- Help with personal care tasks
- Help with activities of daily living
- Help preparing meals
- Help providing or arranging for transportation
Supported Home Living offers support to people that are residing in the community either by themselves or with family members. MHMR staff assists with daily living skills, community activities, personal hygiene, grooming and other individualized services as determined by their needs.
