Residential Habilitation Services

Residential habilitation provides supervision and specific training activities that assist the client to acquire, maintain, or improve skills related to activities of daily living. The service focuses on hygiene skills such as bathing and oral hygiene; homemaking skills such as food preparation, vacuuming and laundry; and on social and adaptive skills that enable the client to reside in the community. This training is provided in accordance with a formal implementation plan, developed with direction from the client and reflects the clients goal(s) from their current support plan.
Recipients with challenging behavioral disorders may require more intense levels of residential habilitation services described as behavior focus residential habilitation or intensive behavioral residential habilitation. The necessity for these services is determined by specific client behavioral characteristics that impact the immediate safety, health, progress and quality of life for the client, and the determination that less intensive services have not been sufficient to alter these behaviors. The need for more intense levels of residential habilitation, behavior focus residential or intensive behavioral residential habilitation must be verified by APD.
