RESIDENTIAL AND SUPPORTED LIVING OPTIONS

 

In DuPage County there are a number of different residential options for people with disabilities.  In order to become a resident of these programs, the first step is to get a case opened with PACT, Inc.  PACT, Inc. is the service coordination agency for DuPage County.  PACT determines eligibility for state funded residential services, helps families locate appropriate providers, and requests funding on behalf of the family.  If you are looking for adult services, you should contact PACT when your child is 17 ˝.

Commonly asked questions about residential

& supported living situations

 

1) How many people are in the home(s)?  This will depend on the type of residential arrangement.  Some will be small homes on a campus, an apartment building, individual apartments, or individual homes.  A follow up question to this would be how many people share a bedroom?

 

2) What is the wait list to get in?  Provider agencies keep a database of interested and eligible applicants.  When an opening occurs, the provider will choose the individual with the greatest need.  Families are encouraged to visit several providers and gather information so that they can decide what they want and can make an informed decision.

 

3) What is the staff to resident ratio?  &  When are staff available?  Each program provides for a different staffing pattern.  The staff ratio will differ depending on the arrangement and the time of day.  Some can base availability on individual needs.

 

4) Will the resident have to maintain employment?  In most residential arrangements, the resident will participate in a day program or work in the community.

 

5) What bills are the residents responsible for?  This varies and will depend on the type of residential arrangement and the independent living skills of the individual.

 

6) Can the parents or individuals buy a house and bypass PACT Inc. and the wait lists?  No.  PACT, Inc. must determine eligibility for all individuals wishing to be placed in a residential setting. 

 

7) Can individuals with diagnosis of Mental Illness live in a residential arrangement described above?  For individuals with a primary diagnosis of Mental Illness, the coordination agency that is involved is the DuPage County Health Department.  However, anyone with a DD diagnosis should first contact PACT, Inc.

 

8) What about transportation?  Some residential service providers will have transportation available for the day program or for any other program the residents participate.  Others may not provide transportation.  For community jobs, public transportation, taxi service, biking or walking are commonly used.

 

9) What if the person is living at home, but wants or needs additional support besides the family?  There are respite programs and personal assistance programs that help people live independently in their homes.  For information on home-based support services, contact PACT, Inc.

 

 

Supported Living & Residential Options

Abbreviations & Explanations

 

ICF - Intermediate Care Facility.  These facilities are for individuals who need assistance and training in daily living, self care skills and require 24-hour supervision.  Generally, medical staff is available 24 hours a day. An ICF may be a nursing home setting, small individual homes on a campus or in a dormitory type setting.

 

CLF - Community Living Facility.  These facilities are for individuals who need guidance and support in most areas (e.g. social, vocational, daily living), however, not constant supervision.  The emphasis is to prepare residents for more independent living.  CLF’s are usually in apartment settings.  Staff is available on site.

 

CILA - Community Integrated Living Arrangement.  The amount of supervision provided in a CILA varies from intermittent to 24-hour support depending on the need of the individual.  Individuals live in apartments, condominiums or houses that are integrated into the community.  People who reside in a CILA may have medical needs that can be addressed by intermittent nursing.  Eight persons or fewer reside in this type of setting.

 

SLA - Supported Living Arrangement.  These arrangements are for individuals that need intermittent support from staff.  Staff is not always on site and individuals live in homes, apartments, town homes or condos.
