Continuing Care performance report

Measure: Percent of people on the disability waivers who are served at home.

The percent of people with disabilities, excluding developmental disabilities, who receive services in their own homes has decreased.

To help track progress, counties similar in population size are grouped together and called a "cohort." Cohort 1 includes the smallest Minnesota counties by population and served the highest percent of people with disabilities in their own home.

Why this measure is important?

This measure shows people with disabilities 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 disabilities who receive services at home through the disability waivers. The services may include homemaker, home delivered meals, supplies and equipment or home care services. This does not include people on the Developmental Disabilities Waiver.

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 on the disability waivers who receive services at home divided by the total number of people on the disability waivers, excluding the DD Waiver.
