Bost Clinical Services Department consists of 3 Intermediate Care Facilities that serve as homes for 35 consumers. The individuals are assisted and taught different skills based on their individual needs. This all takes place in a homelike setting. They all attend a day program where they are either learning job skills and earning money or learning other skills in a classroom setting. There are approximately 30 direct care staff (Program Service Instructors) that work with the consumers assisting and teaching them. The department also has an RN and 5 LPNs that ensure the medical needs are met to include medication passes with individual training on their medications. There are 2 QIDP’s (Qualified Intellectual Disability Professional) that are responsible to ensure the individual programming needs are implemented, coordinated, documented and being met. The program is overseen by a licensed nursing home administrator. The facilities are licensed and surveyed by the Office of Long Term Care.
The consumers have been at home for several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They are ready to get out of the house and to have visitors. These restrictions have not been lifted for the ICF program. At this time, we are staying home and staying safe.
