Residential Services and Supports
Residential Services in Holmes County provide community living options and provider/service choices to individuals with MR/DD. Utilizing Individual Service Plans (ISP), a person chooses where he/she wants to live and supports are then designed around the individual. Supports usually take the form of homemaker/personal care services, but other services may be provided based on the need and availability.
Individuals may live independently or with a roommate if they need 24 hours supervision. They can choose to live in an apartment or reside in a house within the community. Other options available include receiving residential services while continuing to reside with one's family or in a home share program (foster care).
Holmes Community Housing, Inc. is a nonprofit housing corporation that was established to purchase and maintain affordable housing for eligible individuals. Holmes Community Housing, Inc. currently operates 4 homes that have been purchased with funds provided by the Ohio Department of MR/DD.
Intermediate Care Facilities
Intermediate Care Facilities for people with Mental Retardation (ICF-MR) are funded through the Medicaid program and offer more intense nursing and habilitation services that are commonly referred to as "active treatment." Holmes County has one licensed facility that has 12 beds.
