Riverside Developmental Disabilities Miami County Ohio

Adult Community Housing

In Miami County, there are a wide variety of residential service options for adults with developmental disabilities. Whether someone is looking for the perfect place to call home or is in need of extra support at a current residence, Riverside can help individuals find the right options for them. Residential supports are coordinated by Riverside, and provided by a network of quality service providers. Discover the just some of the residential options below.

In-Home Support
The options below focus on Homemaker/Personal Care (HPC) services. In each home setting, providers help individuals develop and maintain independent living skills, such as personal hygiene, dressing, feeding, transfer and ambulatory needs, cooking, cleaning and more. This support can be provided on an as-needed basis, sometimes for as little as just a few hours a week, to 24-hour care.

Shared Living
In a shared living setting, also known as group homes, up to four individuals reside together in a single home. Individuals have the option to choose roommates and residential service providers. In-home support staff provide around-the-clock care to assist individuals with daily living and to meet the goals on the person's Individual Service Plan. Shared living/group homes are often accessible to accommodate mobility needs.

Adult Family Living
Adult family living is when an immediate family member, like a sibling or parent, lives with an individual and provides paid waiver services at home. The family member helps and supports with daily living needs.

Foster Care Living
Many individuals in Miami County open their homes to individuals with developmental disabilities for adult foster care living. This setting creates a family environment while providing essential in-home support.

Assistive Technology & Remote Support Services
Supportive Technology offers people with developmental disabilities personalized help with daily tasks at home or at work. Assistive Technology can support a person who wants to be more independent with devices like stoves that turn off when they are not in use or alarms for reminders to take medication.

Remote Support uses two-way communication in real time, like Skype or FaceTime, so a person can talk with their direct service provider, even when the provider is not in their home. The service also includes supports like sensors that can call for help if a person has fallen or cameras that show who is at the door. All Medicaid waivers cover the cost and maintenance of equipment used for Remote Support service delivery.
