Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID):
Life Bridges offers wide-ranging medical, mental health, and behavioral supports to individuals with complex disabilities. Individuals live in well appointed homes in the community. The program focuses on active treatment which emphasizes developmental teaching with an overall goal of increased independence. Therapy supports are provided, as needed, and include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language therapy, nutritional therapy, and behavioral therapy. Nursing services are provided 24/7 in each ICF/IID home.
Care of a family member with an intellectual or developmental disability can be a stressful calling. Even the most loving families sometimes need a break. Caregivers have health issues which can demand their undivided attention. Life Bridges offers respite services for just such moments. Respite services provide an individual with room and board. Respite services also provide a break for the caregiver and new and exciting experiences for the individual.
People supported in residential services live in a variety of settings. A person may live in a group home, a single-family home, an apartment or with a family. Each person’s level of need determines the type of support they receive. A person with high needs receives multiple supports. A person with fewer needs receives fewer supports. Life Bridges provides supports aimed at increasing skills and independence.
