20 Identifying Individuals for Discharge
Some of the factors considered when prioritizing individuals for moving : Individuals expressed a desire or do not oppose community placement and their personal support team (PST) feels there are supports already available in the community Community options are available to meet the needs of individuals and allow an individual to be near natural supports, particularly family and friends Individuals have already begun the transition to the community by participating in a higher level of community integration activities, e.g., paid employment off grounds Individuals have expressed interest in remaining together and there are providers willing and able to serve the identified group of individuals Providers are willing and able to develop specialized programs to meet needs of individuals

21 Assurances Some individuals may request to move more quickly and some
Individuals may take longer due to unforeseen occurrences or other factors that must be addressed. DBHDS is committed to ensuring a consistent discharge process which includes: Ensuring all essential support needs will be met in the community; Providing reasonable time to plan for and prepare the individual and AR for the discharge; Developing a discharge plan that addresses what is important to/for individual; Sharing the appropriate information with provider agencies to assure a successful transition; Providing a post-move plan of care that will assist the individual to adjust successfully to his or her new supports; and Providing post-move monitoring to ensure the continuation of supports and services as identified in the pre and post-move process.
