Community Case Management

OHI is approved by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services to provide community case management for adults with intellectual disabilities in six Maine counties — Penobscot, Piscatiquis, Somerset, Hancock, Washington, and Waldo.

We have a two-fold purpose at OHI: To offer people with disabilities the opportunity to make life choices and set their own goals; and then to provide the resources they need to work toward those goals.

We believe that with the right resources, everyone can live more independently and make a contribution to society and their community. OHI case managers work individually with each person to develop a support plan, advocate for needs, link services and monitor progress.

Case management services and support plans include many aspects and specifically help people with intellectual disabilities to:

  • Increase independence;
  • Find ways to become involved in their communities;
  • Make good decisions, so they stay healthy and safe;
  • Make use of natural supports;
  • Learn to be strong self-advocates;
  • Understand how to find housing and employment; and
  • Learn to schedule and document appointments and meetings.

Representative payee services

OHI also offers representative payee services to people served in the community case management program. Case managers work with people to develop a budget, manage finances and increase money management skills.

As with all OHI services, the goal is clear; to help people work and live in their communities as independently as possible.

For more information, contact Lindy Lynch, community case management supervisor, at 356-1665 or [email protected].
