Oregon Employment First – Comprehensive Services Developmental Disabilities Program


State Policies & Initiatives: 

“Oregon has been successful in developing community-based care and discouraging institutionalization of seniors and the disabled because of their exceptional case management system. Through the case management program, consumers get information and assistance, assessment and planning. When an individual is found to need LTC services, a screener is called for the initial intake of information. As appropriate, the screener schedules an in-home visit by a case manager. During the visit, the case manager assesses the extent of functional disability and works with the client to ensure that a care plan mat matches his or her needs, values, and preferences. A comprehensive assessment allows for a care plan to be built on the client’s existing social network as well as on the resources available in the community”
