Our Family Model Residential Support (FMRS) is a type of residential service where a person supported chooses to join and live in the home of a trained caregiver who is a not family member. The person supported is integrated with the new family and becomes a member of the family model provider(caregiver)'s household. Under this arrangement, the person supported receives individualized, person-centered services and supports that promote the person supported to acquire, retain, or improve skills necessary to reside successfully in a family environment different from the family of origin. The service includes direct assistance as needed with activities of daily living (e.g., bathing, dressing, personal hygiene, eating, and meal preparation excluding cost of food), household chores, budget management, attending appointments, and interpersonal and social skills building. It also includes medication administration. TPA will recruit, screen, train and supervise the Family Model Residential Support provider/caregiver. Our family model program does not permit family model residential homes to support more than 3 residents regardless of the funding source.
