DHS Launches HCBS Provider Toolkit
On October 8, 2019 by Bobbie DuChamp Guidry
The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) has released a new Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Provider Toolkit that provides guidance, frequently asked questions, and examples of provider practices that support choice and autonomy for people who receive these services.
Topics featured in the toolkit include Person-Centered Practices, Rights, Community Integration and Engagement, Transportation and Employment.
Since the creation of the state’s HCBS waiver system, DHS and providers have been working together to ensure older adults and people with disabilities have access to the highest-quality services in every community.
Providers play an important role in making sure people make their own choices and pursue their desired opportunities, contribute to their communities and are treated with dignity and respect. We encourage members to use this toolkit to help generate ideas on how to better serve older adults and people with disabilities.
