It’s important that individuals with developmental disabilities have safe homes with needed supports and services. That’s why the County Board offers residential services through two licensed Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF). Both ICFs are certified by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities and the Ohio Department of Health.
- Adult Residence Center (ARC)
- Jacklitz Continuing Development Center (JCDC)
The ICF’s primary purpose is to furnish health and habilitation services to individuals with developmental disabilities, or persons with related conditions who are receiving active treatment.
Residents of the ICF must be Medicaid eligible and need an ICF Level of Care (LOC). Individuals are determined to have an ICFDD LOC when they need supervision and assistance of certain activities of daily living, supervision of self-administration of medication and assistance, and supervision to prevent harm due to a cognitive impairment.
Each ICF resident must have an Individual Plan (IP) developed by an interdisciplinary team that represents the professions, disciplines and service areas relevant to identifying the individual’s needs. Resident care includes:
- Consistent, active and individualized treatment
- Residential staff trained in CPR/First Aid and in non-violent Crisis Prevention Intervention
- 24/7 nursing care
- Habilitation programs and services
- Adult daily living skill instruction
- Supervised recreation and community outings
- Dietary services and family style dining (three meals and snack/day)
- Social services
- Psychological and psychiatric assessments
- Physical, occupational and speech therapy
- Transportation to Day Programs
- Pavilions on-site
