Direct Support Professional (DSP)
The K plan is based on attendant services which are identified as Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs), functional skills training and health related tasks through hands on assistance, supervision, and/or cueing.
ADLs include but are not limited to assistance with bathing, personal hygiene, dressing, eating, mobility (ambulation, transferring and positioning) bowel and bladder care, stand by support, cognition, memory care and behavior supports.
IADLs are more complex activities than ADL’s. They are activities that assure a person can live as independently as possible in the community. These may include supports that assist a person to continue to productively work toward long range goals i.e. managing money, using technology, transportation to work or classes, or they may be related to maintaining independent living such as light housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation and chore services and medication management.
Other non ADL/IADL and health related services including but not limited to extended state plan services, family training, supported employment, will continue to be provided through the waivers.
