SERVICES & SUPPORT
Strive host home monitoring takes several forms. First, host home providers are required to complete and submit a number of different reports to Strive. These reports are reviewed by supervisory, case management, or other appropriate staff. Secondly, a variety of Strive staff will regularly visit the host home to provide support and monitor provision of services to the individual as follows:
1) Each host home is assigned to one of several residential supervisors for the purposes of both monitoring and support. That supervisor essentially serves as the liaison between Strive and the host home. The assigned supervisor will visit the host home every 2-4 weeks during the initial months of the host home experience and then every other month for 6 months quarterly.
2) The service support specialist will visit the host home for the purposes of gathering information for the annual assessment and to facilitate development and implementation of support plans. The program specialist also will visit quarterly to review the client’s safety, nutrition and emergency plans.
3) Strive nursing staff will also visit every other month. They will conduct four nursing reviews and two pharmacy reviews each year.
4) The Strive case manage will complete a monitoring visit 6 tines a year. Additionally, IDT meetings and SP’s are often held in the home.
Overall, you can expect a visit from Strive staff person 1 or 2 times a month. Typically, visits are scheduled in advance, at a time that is convenient to the provider and the client. However, there will be periodic unannounced visits as well.
