  • Description:
  • Bassett Creek is an accessible home in Crystal. A unique feature of the home is that there are LPNs on staff 24/7. Thus, individuals interested in living at Bassett Creek should have medical needs that warrant this level of care. Our nurses and Program Counselors are trained in working with individuals with seizure disorders, diabetes, mobility issues, depressive tendencies, paraplegia and quadriplegia, cerebral palsy, catheters, gastrostomies, respiratory disorders (such as COPD and prolonged respiratory failure), tracheotomies, hydrocephalus, skin irritations, constipation, mitral valve prolapse, tactile and sensory sensitivities, blindness, allergies (including seasonal, medication, latex and topical allergens), skin irritations, and scoliosis. However, this is not an exhaustive list of conditions that can be accommodated. Another unique feature of the home is that an in-home day treatment and habilitation (DT&H) program is available on site for those who may be interested in this option. Services are provided by another company and admission is voluntary. Admission to Bassett Creek is not dependent on admission to the DT&H. There are currently two men and one woman living in the home. They are between the ages of 49 and 65. All are non-verbal, require the use of a wheelchair, have high medical needs, function in the profound range of intellectual disabilities and are quite vulnerable. Thus, individuals interested in living at Bassett Creek should have similar needs to those currently living in the home. The home is on a quiet street in Crystal near the Bassett Creek Park. There is a lovely, fenced backyard that individuals enjoy throughout the spring, summer and fall. There are four bedrooms, a living room, family room, kitchen and large bathroom on the main level of the home. A shower table is available in the bathroom. There is easy access to the garage and lift van. The entire main level of the home is accessible. Staffing in the home currently includes 1 LPN on each shift, including an awake LPN overnight; 1 asleep Program Counselor to assist as needed with emergencies; 2 Program Counselors for most awake hours during the day; a part-time RN Consultant; and a full-time Program Manager.

  • Description:
  • Creekside is a home located in south Bloomington, near Normandale Community College, within easy access to 35W. The house is a one-story rambler with four bedrooms; access to the kitchen, living room and sun-room are located on the main floor. The laundry room is located on the lower level, along with some storage. The backyard has a large, fenced-in area with an accessible deck. Access to the home includes an accessible ramp. While there are accessible areas, the home is not completely wheelchair-accessible for all common areas but would be a good home for individuals with no concerns with accessibility or who require the use of some adaptive equipment, such as a cane or a walker. Currently, there are 3 individuals living in the home, consisting of both men and women. Two are retirement age and show common age-related diseases such as declining eye-sight, arthritis, dementia-related confusion and forgetfulness, and related anxiety or depression. Two individuals have developmental disabilities and all individuals at the home have some struggles with their emotional well-being. The home is able to assist with individuals’ health needs as assigned and can assist with specialized or adaptive medical equipment in many cases. The home assists individuals with their activities of daily living, such as meals, medications, shopping, bathing as assessed, and there is an RN consultant that visits the home and is available by phone. Two of the individuals are less social and do not talk frequently or are unable to talk to others, while one individual is very social and talkative. Awake overnight staff is in place at the home, daytime staffing is in place during the week, while 2 staff are scheduled during the evenings on weekdays and during weekends. Additional staffing can be accommodated for activities, special occasions, health needs, or other various circumstances. (Opening for a woman or a man)
Midland - Shoreview

  • kathil@thomasalleninc.com
  • Description:
  • Midland currently serves three women in their 20’s to 40’s. This home would be best suited to serve a woman with no aggressive Target Symptoms and minimal medical needs. Services are currently provided to two women who are Deaf and one woman who is Hearing but uses American Sign Language for communication. All staff who work at this home must be proficient in American Sign Language (ASL). The women in this home are very independent; all having alone time. The women are looking for a housemate who does not need a high level of staff support (like themselves), who either cooks or is willing to learn, who is capable of cleaning her own space and share in household cleaning, and who does not have interfering behaviors that will disrupt the home. They like to be active in the Deaf Community and are seeking someone who also values being part of this community. The current group are all working towards being more independent someday and would love to have a fourth housemate who shares this goal. The open bedroom is on the main floor of the home and could support someone with mobility needs, as long as they can walk up and down a few steps and do not need an accessible home. The home has a large deck off of the kitchen and a walkout lower level. The home is located a short drive from many shopping and eating establishments. Staffing ratio is typically 2:4 with overnight sleep staffing. All three individuals work in the community. (Opening for a woman)
