Community Living in Mississippi – Baddour (CLIMB) provides supports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities so that they can be informed, engaged, and vibrant parts of their community. We will plan with persons rather than for them based on their wants and needs and picture of an ideal life.
Who is eligible?
Persons receiving services through CLIMB’s community programs are enrolled in the Medicaid Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Program for Individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (ID/DD Waiver).
The ID/DD Waiver is a funding source through which services are provided to persons living in their communities rather than being placed in an institution. Persons must be eligible for Medicaid and meet the level of care required for institutional placement to be considered for enrollment in the program.
Medicaid and the Mississippi Department of Mental Health (DMH) are responsible for the administration and operation of the ID/DD Waiver in Mississippi. All services and supports shall be provided in compliance with rules and regulations set forth by Medicaid, DMH, and the ID/DD Medicaid Waiver document approved by the Center for Medicaid Services (CMS).
Day Services Adult
CLIMB shall offer a Day Services — Adult (DSA) Program to people living in the community.
DSA shall be provided in a setting separate from each person’s living arrangement and located in the community, allowing access to activities such as shopping, eating, parks, etc.
Services shall be provided on a regular basis and include both group and individual participation in activities. These activities should result in enhanced daily living and other skills, improved decision-making, a greater confidence in community settings, and more meaningful days for each person.
Supervised Living Services
Supervised Living Services provide individually tailored supports to each person living in the home. We seek to help persons develop, improve, and/or maintain the skills necessary for them to live happily and successfully in the community.
We shall design and offer activities to promote instruction, independence, and community participation.
Support levels and supervision enable persons to participate in activities of their choosing, a key contributor to experiencing a truly meaningful day.
Services are provided twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week.
