Continuing Care performance report

Measure: The percent of people with Developmental Disabilities Waiver who are served at home.

The percent of people with developmental disabilities who receive waiver services in their own homes has slightly increased.

To help track progress, counties similar in population size are grouped together and called a "cohort." Cohort 5 includes Minnesota's largest counties by population and served the highest percent of people who receive services at home.

Why this measure is important?

This measure shows people with developmental disabilities can receive services at home instead of moving to foster care or other residential settings. When services are provided at home, people have control over their environment, which promotes independence. It is important because home and community-based services are less expensive to provide when people are at home.

What is included in the measure?

This measure includes people with developmental disabilities who receive support services at home through the DD Waiver. The services may include homemaker, home delivered meals, supplies and equipment or homecare services.

What does it mean?

A higher percent means more people receive services in their homes instead of residential settings.

How is it calculated?

The number of people with DD Waiver who receive services at home divided by the total number of people with DD Waiver.
