Job Description

Extended Family Home Service

Extended Family Home Service provides residential services in a single family home setting (their home) to an individual with intellectual or developmental disabilities.  Extended Family Home services are delivered under a subcontract with VODEC and are continuous services.

Extended Family Home services are formalized training and supports for the acquisition, retention, or improvement in skills related to a person with intellectual or developmental disabilities living in the community. Formalized training and supports are not simply care and support; they are specialized, formalized training and supports. These include adaptive skill development of daily living activities, such as personal grooming and cleanliness, bed making and household chores, eating and the preparation of food, community inclusion, transportation, and the social and leisure skill development necessary to enable an individual to live in the most integrated setting appropriate for his/her needs. Extended Family Home Services also include personal care and protective oversight and supervision as applicable to an individual.

Health maintenance activities, such as medication administration and treatments that are routine, stable, and predictable may be provided by medication aides and other unlicensed professionals and require nurse or medical practitioner oversight of delegated activities to the extent permitted under applicable State laws. Health maintenance activities, supervision, and assistance with personal needs are provided when identified as a need and documented in team meetings

Extended Family Home services are services provided in a setting where an individual and the Extended Family Home Provider reside and the Extended Family Home Provider is on-site and immediately available at all times for the individual receiving services, including during the individual’s sleep time.
