intermediate Care Facilities
We operate two (2) Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID).
Fort Lauderdale ICF is a 48 bed facility and Pembroke Pines ICF offers 24 beds.
Each ICF has three (3) family-style homes supported by an around-the-clock team of residential staff, nurses and therapists who collectively provide intensive specialized services to individuals with developmental disabilities, behavioral challenges and/or significant functional skill impairments.
Each ICF is based on a medical model which provides all services (multidiscipline).
Placed individuals must have the ability to benefit from rehabilitative services, known as Active Treatment. Each individual is provided with an individual plan that is tailored to their specific needs. Their parent/guardian is a valued member of their Circle of Support.
Each ICF has a unique home-like setting. Bedrooms are individualized to likes and preferences. No two rooms are alike! Wrap around support services include 24 hour nursing and residential services, innovative therapy, recreation and community inclusion.
