Wendell Foster’s licensed Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) for individuals with disabilities consists of four, eight bedroom/four bathroom homes for 63 individuals. Residential, active treatment, and nursing supports are offered 24 hours per day. Each person living in the ICF has a person-centered, individualized support plan, based on their strengths, interests, and needs.
The Intermediate Care Facility is focused on providing each person with the best life experiences possible. Services include recreational services, buffet-style dining, nursing, residential, assistive technology, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Each individual is evaluated and an individualized plan is developed to enable those living here to reach their goals and dreams. Through teamwork and a focus on what each person wants out of life, we have achieved what others have considered to be the impossible.
Some of the great experiences that the ICF has achieved over the past few years include skiing in Colorado, as well as vacations to Las Vegas, Disney Orlando and Panama City Beach, to name a few. We are not just a home, but a support and family as well. We strive to provide those who live in the ICF with the same life experiences as any other typical family.
Medicaid benefits pay for these supports.
