Hillcroft’s OBRA Services provides supports to individuals with developmental disabilities who reside in long-term healthcare facilities. The title of OBRA Services references the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act which funds the programming.
OBRA Services provide participants the opportunity to spend time in their communities, stay connected with family and friends and improve their quality of life. OBRA activities can include shopping trips, going out to eat, leisure and cultural events, educational activities, going to the library, sporting events, and local community attractions.
In order to receive OBRA services, eligibility must first be determined by the Bureau of Developmental Disability Services (BDDS). BDDS may be reached at 765-288-6516. Services can begin after the participants' budget has been approved by BDDS and FSSA (Family and Social Services Administration). This is usually a 4-6 week process.
Our highly trained staff work closely with each person served, his or her family and the nursing home facility staff to create and arrange person-centered activities based upon their individual needs and interests. All services are one-on-one with direct support professionals spending several hours per week with each person served.
Hillcroft OBRA program staff receive intense initial and ongoing training in CPR / First Aid, Universal Precautions, Core A and Core B Medication Training, Medication Administration, Positive Behavior Supports, Client Rights, Preventing Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation, Incident Reporting, Defensive Driving and Aggression Management Techniques.
Hillcroft's OBRA program is based in Madison County and provides services exclusively to residents residing at Edgewater Woods, 1809 N. Madison Avenue, Anderson, Indiana.
Hillcroft’s OBRA program is led by Joycelyn Baer, the Vice President of Community Resources. Learn More>>
