NBRC Presents Performance Contract Plan for 2019 – Sept 5th

Public Meeting to Review 2019 Performance Plan

 

Wed, September 5, 2018

 5-7 pm

Board Room

North Bay Regional Center 610 Airpark Way

Napa, CA 94558

 

North Bay Regional Center wants to make sure that we are continuously improving. We strive to exceed our mission, desired outcomes, and that we are in compliance with all requirements.

 

The NBRC Performance Plan measures our ongoing performance on desired statewide outcomes, and compares North Bay Regional Center’s performance with the statewide average for all 21 regional centers in California. These desired outcomes reflect the state’s public policy direction for developmental services in the community.

 

We continue to fulfill all planned activities with the intent of improving outcomes as directed by our community members, Board of Directors, and NBRC staff.

 

How do we implement this plan?

We are continuing activities from this year and prior years, such as the continued development of licensed homes, day activities, family support and training and more in 2018/19, such as:

 

  • Support for clients to move from State Developmental Centers to homes in the community
  • Support for children to live with families (their own family, foster family, or with a guardian)
  • Support for adults to live in home environments (in their own home with or without supported living services as needed, with their family)
  • Coordination of employment preparation and training, job development, and ongoing support for adults to find and maintain

 

You are invited to hear a presentation of our proposed plan and provide your input. We will present the plan and listen to your comments during the Public Meeting of the NBRC Board of Directors on September 5, 2018.

 

or send your written input by mail or email to:

Waiver Application for Self Determination Program Submitted March 13, 2018

Memo from DDS, dated 3/13/18:

 

The Waiver application for the Self Determination Program was submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) today.  The application is back “on the clock” and CMS has 90 days to take action to either approve the application, deny the application or request additional clarification.  Because of all the work that’s been done up front to prepare CMS for the formal submission and to respond to their questions and concerns, [the Department is] very hopeful that the application will be approved.

 

A copy of the Waiver application is now posted on the Department’s website:

Solano County hosts resource fair and website launch for people with disabilities

 

A Disabilities Resource Fair is planned for next Thursday, March 15 in Solano County, in observance of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, county officials announced.

Solano County Health and Social Services, in partnership with the DisABILITY Planning Group, will host the event from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday at the County Events Center, 601 Texas Street in Fairfield. This event is free and open to the public, they said.

At the resource fair, the County will unveil the SolanoCares.org – Disabilities website, an online hub of resources, services, health topics and events designed specifically for Solano residents with disabilities.

“Like its sister site SolanoCares4Seniors.org, this one-stop resource website provides people with disabilities, their family members, caregivers, and health care professionals a means to easily look up disability-related information,” officials said.

The site’s key features include a comprehensive service directory of local, state and national resources, community calendar, learning center, nationwide news stories and health library, they said.

“The website aims to empower people with disabilities by providing them a streamlined platform to find resources in an easy-to-read format,” officials said. “SolanoCares.org is ADA-compliant and available in multiple languages.”

Following the launch, guests are welcome to explore the website through multiple demo stations, event organizers said. Attendees can also learn about more than 20 organizations that cater to those with disabilities, including support and advocacy groups, transportation services, nonprofit agencies and government programs, they said.

“Finding resources can be challenging, and even more so if you have a disability,” Solano County Health Officer Bela Matyas said. “Our goal is to make it simpler for those with disabilities to find services that best meet their needs. The resource fair gives them the opportunity to learn about services available to them in the community and the website stores information about all these services in one convenient place which can be accesses anytime and anywhere.”

Light refreshments will be served.

To RSVP, register by Wednesday, March 14, at, https://www.eventbrite.com/e/solanocaresorg-disabilities-website-launch-resource-fair-tickets-43450881757

For more information about the Disabilities Resource Fair and website launch event, contact Shai Davis, Senior Health Education Specialist at (707) 784-8679 and KBDavis@SolanoCounty.com.
