Can I receive Targeted Case Management services if I am on the waiting list?
Yes, you can receive Targeted Case Management services while you are on the waiting list. TCM services can be provided to an individual through his or her KanCare medical card, or by paying for the service privately. Case managers can assess the individual’s needs and complete referrals to generate other community services (i.e. assistive technology, vocational rehabilitation services, etc.).
What if I decide that I want to live with a different Shared Living Provider?
You, or your guardian, must provide 30-day notice for any changes in your Shared Living services contract. If you want to continue to receive Shared Living services, CLASS can assist you in finding a different Shared Living Provider.
What if my family situation changes and I can no longer provide Shared Living Services?
Shared Living services contracts may be cancelled by either the shared living provider or the individual, but a 30-day notice of cancellation is required. A secondary plan is in place for any individual placed with a shared living provider to ensure that the individual’s needs are met in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
Are any in-home services available to people who receive Shared Living services?
Shared Living Providers are responsible for finding persons to care for the hosted individual in the absence of the family. Anyone who provides care for the hosted individual must pass all required background checks before caring for the hosted individual. If a Shared Living Provider needs assistance in caring for the hosted individual, the Shared Living Provider is responsible for paying that caretaker out of the daily rate received for providing the Shared Living service. If you need assistance with this process, or have concerns about any behavioral issues, contact Chris Dial at 620.231.3131 or 800.479.0259 (toll free).
