“AiMHi’s services are available to adults who have a developmental disability and children with special needs. To promote healthy, informative and positive transitions for people transitioning into and through AiMHi services, we will ensure information on appropriate services is presented in a format that people will understand. All referrals received will be prioritized in the order that the funding agency directs. The funding agencies hold all waitlists.AiMHi will advocate with people to ensure they receive appropriate transition planning to new circumstances and services.”
- Adult referrals are made by Community Living BC (CLBC) and children/youth referrals are made from Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD). The referral source and person, along with AiMHi will work in conjunction to determine services that will best meet the identified request. Where exceptions exist, the circumstances will be documented.
- Information will be obtained which is necessary to provide service that is being requested (i.e.: family, cultural, medical, daily living skills etc.). Information will be shared with relevant authorized persons only. Some departments have specific entrance or ineligibility criteria. These criteria will be reviewed at intake at applicable department.
- The applicable Management Team members will oversee screening and administer decisions based on applicable criteria.
- People will be informed of their acceptance into services or recommendations will be documented for alternative services.
