For 46 years, Cheyenne Village has been dedicated to providing assistance, training, and support to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Every individual served by Cheyenne Village has a personal service plan tailored to their unique needs. Our services include:
Apartment Living Support:
Individuals living alone or with a housemate are supported in housekeeping, nutrition, financial management, arranging or providing transportation, and personal safety. Three apartment clusters have on-site staff offices, one of which is staffed 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
Individuals live with a host family that provides 24-hour support. Individuals have a private bedroom in the home and are included in family activities. Cheyenne Village staff coordinates services and monitors the home.
We provide staff support to two group homes 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. One home is barrier free. Each home provides a private bedroom and common living areas for five to seven individuals. Staff provides support in personal care, nutrition and meal preparation, financial management and transportation, to ensure health and safety needs are met.
We ensure that individuals obtain and maintain all benefits for which they are eligible including: Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, SSI, Food Stamps, LEAP and HUD.
Our nursing staff manage healthcare needs including: acute and chronic medical conditions, appointments with doctors and specialists, monitoring medication administration, and maintaining medical records.
Supported Community Connections (SCC):
We provide learning opportunities in community settings that include volunteer work, physical fitness and wellness, socialization and educational activities. Services may be five days a week, Monday through Friday, or flexible based on individual preferences.
Supported Living Services (SLS):
Supported Living Services offers staff assistance for individuals living in the family home or in their own home independently. Services could include personal care, enhanced homemaker, respite and mentorship. Assistance is available with grocery shopping, money management and coordinating medical appointments.
Family Caregiver services allow a family member to become an employee of Cheyenne Village who is paid to provide care to the family member with IDD with Comprehensive Residential or SLS funding.
Respite Care is available through SLS funding and private pay. Respite provides relief time for the regular caregiver to have a break. Respite may be provided by Cheyenne Village employees in the individual’s home or in community activities.
Group Respite Program:
The Group Respite program provides a variety of support to individuals 18 and older with IDD who are living alone or with family caregivers. This program meets every Saturday for a day of fun community activities with little or not cost to the individual and their family. This program is available to individuals who are on the Supported Living Services Waiver or private pay. For more information about Respite Group on Saturdays, contact Karen Scannell at 719-572-7471.
