What are Residential Services?
OPTIONS Residential Services Program provides intensive instruction and intervention to reduce challenging behaviors and cognitive deficits for people with intellectual disabilities and/or other neurological impairments.
Services are designed to foster transition to more independent living environments within the shortest reasonable period of time. There is no preset or average length of stay for people served in OPTIONS residential programs, but instead a continual review of progress and individualized plans for residential services. OPTIONS homes are staffed at a one-to-three staff-to-client ratio for up to fourteen hours per day, with a one-to-six ratio at night. This service is covered through Medi-Cal and any share of cost will be determined by DHCS.
OPTIONS” overall residential program design has three major components: independent living skills acquisition, behavior management, and medical services. All programing is directed by qualified staff and services are outlined in each client’s Individual Service Plan.

Each person's ISP will include, but not be limited to reason for referral, primary and secondary diagnoses, functional description of targeted objectives, measurement procedures, baseline data, goals, treatment plans, and people responsible for implementation.
