HandsOn provides quality residential care and day activity services for people who have been diagnosed as Deaf/Blind/Multiply Disabled (DBMD) as well as Intellectually and/or Developmentally Disabled (IDD). HandsOn services are designed for individualized training that facilitates the acquisition and/or enhancement of skills in communication, personal care, daily living skills, and recreation. Services are provided in the least restrictive environment while promoting the safety, care, and welfare of all participants.
Participants are required to meet the Texas Health & Human Services (HHS) eligibility criteria, which include a diagnosis of legal blindness, a hearing impairment that affects speech, and a disabling condition that affects independent functioning. They must also be a legal citizen of the United States and meet the criteria for Medicaid eligibility.
Mission Road’s HandsOn program serves 24 people. They are full-time residents of four of our community homes, one of which is located on our main campus, and they participate in active and engaging day programs hosted at Unicorn Centers Monday through Friday each week.
A long-term care ombudsman helps residents of nursing facilities and assisted living facilities to resolve complaints. The help provided by an ombudsman is confidential and free of charge. To speak with an ombudsman, call the toll-free number, 1-800-252-2412.
