PARENTS ASSOCIATION MEETING

 

All Parent Association members, friends and staff are invited. Keep up with the latest news about Bellefontaine Habilitation Center. Bring your talents and expertise for our advocacy efforts. With everyone’s involvement, the lives of the residents at BHC will be the best possible. All are encouraged to stay informed and take some action. Attend a parents meeting, talk with other families, share your concerns and ideas, write a letter, or make a phone call to help provide a safe, healthy, and supportive environment for the residents of BHC and others. They have no voice but ours, so we must continually speak up for them.

 

 

 

Masks are required at the General Meeting. (If visiting your family member you will need to be tested.)

 

Federal Surveyors for Title 19 Medicaid funding were back on campus 9-20 through 9-22 for resident charts review. All charts looked at were approved. These required federal surveys give our family members a high level of services and oversight.

 

It is important to repeat that there continues to be a strong, persistent effort nationwide to close all congregate care facilities like habilitation centers, despite current federal regulations in support of choice based on need such as:

 

The 1999 Supreme Court Olmstead decision that interprets the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act states:
“It would be unreasonable, it would be a tragic event, then, were the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) to be interpreted so that States had some incentive, for fear of litigation, to drive those in need of medical care and treatment out of appropriate care and into settings with too little assistance and supervision.” Olmstead, at 610.

On the national level, there will continue to be a strong, persistent effort to close all congregate-care facilities like habilitation centers and to close vocational work centers (previously called sheltered workshops). Keep updated and take action on these issues.

 

Remember, according to current federal law, families have the legal right to choose from all available Medicaid services including habilitation centers as they search for appropriate services for their family member with an intellectual disability.
