Support During Transitions
As the people we support move toward more independent living, RSI is with them every step of the way. We offer a variety of transitional services to help people with disabilities achieve their desired level of independence. Individuals continue to have access to the support services they need, and when possible, the same staff.
RSI’s transitional services include:
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Program
RSI serves people with FASD in a variety of settings. In 2001, we created a program in Brookston, Minn., providing supported living settings and an apartment building on a beautiful, wooded 160-acre farm. As service recipients in this program move from a supported living setting to their own apartment, they
maintain staff relationships and recreational and vocational skill-building.
Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS)
Our specialized ARMHS staff support people with mental illness as they work toward developing independent living skills.
We help identify specific objectives to make transitions to a more independent living setting easier. We also continue to work with people even after their move.
When individuals move to an independent setting, RSI’s in-home staff assist with the transition. They work closely with staff from their previous setting to ensure consistency of care. In-home staff are trained to work in a variety of settings and to help with any housing issues they have.
