Intensive Care Coordination
The Intensive Care Coordination Program is for children who are at risk of entering or who have been placed in residential care. Clients are referred to services by the Norfolk Interagency Consortium.
As defined under the State Executive Council guidelines, services are conducted by an Intensive Care Coordinator for children who are at risk of entering or who have been placed in residential care. The purpose of the services are to safely and effectively maintain, transition, or return the child home or to a relative’s home, family like setting, or community at the earliest appropriate time that addresses the child’s needs. Services must be distinguished as above and beyond the regular case management provided within the normal scope of responsibilities for the public child serving systems.
Services provided under the Intensive Care Coordination program include:
- Identifying the strengths and needs of the child and his family through conducting or reviewing comprehensive assessments including, but not limited to, information gathered through the mandatory uniform assessment instrument;
- Identifying specific services and supports necessary to meet the identified needs of the child and his family, building upon the identified strengths;
- Implementing a plan for returning the youth to his home, relative’s home, family-like setting, or community at the earliest appropriate time that addresses his needs, including identification of public or private community-based services to support the youth and his family during transition to community-based care;
- Implementing a plan for regular monitoring and utilization review of the services and residential placement for the child to determine whether the services and placement continue to provide the most appropriate and effective services for the child and his family.
