Champaign Residential Services Inc. recognizes the individuality of each consumer. Therefore, personal choice remains the most important consideration and helps to determine, whenever possible, all support services surrounding the life of the consumer. Services include assistance with daily living skills, transportation, nusring services, social/recreational experiences and advocacy for the rights of individuals with disabilities. As a proponent of the consumer-driven service system, CRSI supports consumers and their families in interviewing and choosing their own staff. Upon hiring, employees are trained in this consumer-driven philosophy.
Often there are many questions about how to access developmental disability services. This brochure serves as a brief outline of where to go and what to expect.
Home/Community Based Waiver (HCBW)/(Individual Options Waiver)
This is the largest expanding federal/state Medicaid service. Individuals with developmental disabilities who are Medicaid eligible may choose their supports, such as, staff, transportation and settings.
Supported Living Services
CRSI offers individuals choices as to where they may live in their own homes or with family, using staff supports that allow for individual choices and decision-making. As with all of CRSI's supports/programs, this is truly consumer-driven. This is a totally state funded program with eligibility based on requirements set forth by each county board of developmental disabilities.
ICF/DD - (Intermediate Care Facility/Developmental Disabilities)
CRSI offers individuals ICF/DD services. This setting offers high quality residential living in a shared setting, where individuals are supported with medical, transportation and other programming services available to meet the specialized health needs of individuals with developmental disabilities.
A prime example of CRSI's proactive, consumer-driven services is our Consumer Advocacy Department which is staffed by advocates who live with challenges and are familiar with available support services. Consumer Satisfaction Surveys are performed to assess the satisfaction of services provided by CRSI. The Consumer Advocacy staff works closely with the Quality Assurance Department to ensure that CRSI follows up with any stated concerns and requests resulting from the surveys. The staff also encourages all individuals to be self-advocates and to participate in making their own choices.
The Consumer Advocacy Director is responsible for the oversight of the advocacy and the UI/MUI process thus ensuring the health and safety of all consumers served.
CRSI Adult Day Services now known as Strive@CRSI is offered as a program of choice for individuals who want to be involved in recreational and/or vocational habilitation activities. The Urbana program is located at the corporate office where both administrative and direct care staff enjoy the daily presence of individuals participating in the program. The program is offered in any county throughout the CRSI service region and can be tailored to individual needs.
