Nursing Home Transition Coordinator
People with disabilities are often times living in nursing homes when they want and are capable of living more independently in their communities. Self Reliance provides assistance to such individuals enabling them to choose a living arrangement of their choice. Each person’s situation dictates the process and timeline for transitioning to a more independent living arrangement. This process includes an assessment of the needs of the consumer including daily living, social, medical/nursing, support system including families, friends and professionals, financial needs and resources. The consumer defines their needs, wants, desires and goals. Many times the resources and supports necessary to independent living take time to be identified, obtained and utilized to meet the individual needs of the consumer.
If you or someone you know lives in a nursing home but wants to move back to the community please call the Clearinghouse on Disability at 866-273-2273 and tell them you want information on the Nursing Home Transition Program.
