Blanchard Valley Residential Services, Inc
BVRSI Day Service program started in 2016. We are a small program that focuses on what individuals truely want to do during the daytime. Many people enjoy their day exploring community opportunities, while others enjoy sensory opportunities or participating in individual activities.
At that time we were a part of the Hancock County Board of Developmental Disabilities. BVRS was the first residential provider in Hancock County.
In June of 2014, we privatized our program and became Blanchard Valley Residential Services, Inc. BVRSI is a not-for-profit organization that is operated by a seven member board.
Our transition was largely due to our continual efforts and desire to assist individuals with different abilities to live in the residential setting of his or her choice, whether it be in our facility-based care (ICF), or in a more integrated home in the community. Our goal is to continue to support individual and their families by providing the same high-quality services that they are accustomed to receiving.
Our current residential program offers a home setting for 16 people in our Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) and offers waiver services to individual living in the community.
Assistance with Daily Needs: We staff homes (waiver homes, and Intermediate Care Facilities) with Direct Support Professionals who provide personal care, as well as recreational opportunities.
Medical Services: Nurses and Nurse Assistants at BVRSI provide high quality medical care for individuals. In the ICF, we provide services 24 hours a day. In homes in the community, our medical team is available to assist as needed, however medications are passed by trained Direct Support Professionals. Our medical personnel monitor the heath care of all the individuals we serve.
Case Management: A Qualified Intellectual Developmental Professional (QIDP) is a case manager of individuals living in the ICF program. The QIDP is responsible for working with the team towards the development of the individual service plan and has the responsibility to ensure the plan is implemented accordingly.
Financial Services: We offer representative payee services to assist individual with their funds. We work collaboratively with the Social Security and Job and Family Services.
