An affiliate of United Community Options, formerly known as United Cerebral Palsy of South Florida since 1947. Miami Cerebral Palsy (MCP) was opened in 1984 by UCP of South Florida (now known as United Community Options of South Florida) to provide ICF/IID (Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities) long term residential care services for children and adults who are medically fragile, non-ambulatory and severely and profoundly intellectually disabled. MCP provides nurturing homes for 96 children and adults with developmental disabilities. There are four long term care residential facilities located on beautiful, spacious lots in beautiful neighborhoods, with each long term care facility having three homes (8 people per home) at each location serving a total of 96 individuals (people supported), combined between all locations. The floor plans and furnishings reflect those often found in typical homes with thoughtful consideration to adaptations for the people supported. The ICF/IID program provides 24 hour nursing care, 7 days a week, along with a full complement of therapeutic services to include, but not limited to; physical, occupational and speech therapy, dietary services under the supervision of a registered dietary clinician, respiratory therapy and direct support professionals, who are required to be registered by The National Alliance for Direct Support Professional.
Our Admission Criteria:
Need for ICF/IID is specifically defined by states, all of whom have established ICF/IID level of care criteria. State level of care requirements must provide access to individuals who meet the coverage criteria defined in Federal law and regulation. In addition to level of care for active treatment, the need for active treatment must arise from an intellectual disability or a related condition. The definition of related condition is primarily functional, rather than diagnostic, but the underlying cause must have been manifested before age 22 (Agency for Persons with Disabilities in Florida enforces age 18) and be likely to continue indefinitely. States vary in practical application of the concept of related condition. In some states individuals applying for ICF/IID residence may be eligible for Medicaid under higher eligibility limits used for residents of an institution.
