Background Statement Concerned Care, Inc. (CCI) was founded in 1972. In 1975, CCI began looking for more independent living opportunities for its clients and a Supervised Apartment Living Program was implemented. The Community Recreation Program began in 1976.

In 1991, CCI pioneered the Individualized Supported Living Program (ISL)with the Department of Mental Health. The program serves individuals who require 24-hour to minimal supervision in a home setting.

The 1996 purchase of a historic bank building in North Kansas City provided permanent space for administrative offices. Through a HUD grant, the Lloyd & Carol Brown Opportunity Apartments opened in 2004 and provides 18 apartments for low-income persons with developmental disabilities.

Established in 1981, Immacolata Manor, the country estate of Joseph Bruening – was purchased by a number of families who had daughters with developmental disabilities. The Benedictine Sisters of Kansas City became caretakers until their retirement in 1997. In 1999, the first off-campus ISL residence opened as the Manor began efforts to integrate individuals more fully into the community.

The main house and carriage house were the residences for 28 women until capital campaigns raised over $2,000,000 to build 5 fully accessible homes. To date, 9 ISL homes have been added throughout the community. Today, the main house is used for administrative purposes.

In 1986, the Broadacres Recreation Center opened to provide space for residents to participate in activities to enhance their health, education and quality of life. In 2000, My Day, the community integration/day habilitation program opened in the facility and in 2013, a second My Day location opened in downtown Liberty, Missouri. In 2016, Immacolata Manor established the Employment Services Program to help individuals with developmental disabilities find meaningful jobs.

On 2016, Concerned Care and Immacolata Manor joined to form Life Unlimited, Inc. Together the organizations have over 80 years of experience providing support services to individuals with developmental disabilities.

Life Unlimited offers a broad scope of services to all the individuals and provides exceptional programs and individualized supports to everyone it serves. A staff of almost 250 supports approximately 165 individuals in group homes or assisted living facilities. The recreation program serves over 500 people each year. Life Unlimited is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.
Impact Statement Accomplishments for 2015:
  • Four additional Individual Supported Living (ISL) residences were added to the existing twelve group or ISL homes. 
  • Ten more individuals with developmental disabilities were provided with residential supports and services with this increase.
  • Through a grant from the William T. Kemper Foundation and the KCP&L Business Energy Rebate Program, the main campus of Immacolata Manor was retrofited with 100% LED lighting.  
  • Paired with the existing solar panels, the organization significantly reduced its environmental footprint and reduced its electric costs to -0 in many of its buildings.
  • We continue to receive the support of our Clay County Developmental Disabilities Resource Board and to partner with the Center for Human Services and the Kansas City Regional Office of the Division of Developmental Disabilities in receiving funding to support our programs.
In the coming year we hope to: 
  • Complete the transition created by the merging of Immacolata Manor and Concerned Care (now known as Life Unlimited).  The merging of the two organizations brings 80 years of excellence in services to more than 200 individuals with developmental disabilities.
  • Fully develop the new Employment Services Program which trains and facilitates jobs for men and women with developmental disabilities who desire meaningful employment.
  • Through funding from DDRB and a generous donor, acquire and construct twelve homes providing housing for thirty-nine individuals. 
Needs Statement In light of diminishing federal, state, and county funding, alternative funding sources are critical:
  • Financial assistance for individuals 
  • Transportation 
  • My Day (community integration program) 
  • Theraputic Recreation Program 
  • Medical and dental care
  • Health Team
  • Hospitalization support services
  • Continued care until death (aging in place/respite services)
  • Funding building expansion for increase in services/programs 
  • Start-up costs to establish ISL homes in the community
  • Programming: increase, improve, and expand 
  • Endowments to maintain current programming
  • Maintain Main House (circa 1933) including accessibility issues, deferred maintenance, and energy considerations
  • Provide access to full time services for people who are funded for part time 
  • Provide access to services for people who are not yet receiving them

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement In July 2016, Immacolata Manor and Concerned Care joined together to for Life Unlimited.  This collaboration brings 80 years of excellence in services to individuals with developmental disabilities.  By merging, the organization is bringing even more programs and services to those we serve.  The challenges of merging different financial and human resource systems, policies and procedures, etc., is well under way and will be completed successfully by July 2017.  This process has in no way interrupted the care brought to providing men and women with developmental disabilities with the skills and opportunities they need to live as independently as possible.

Short-Term Success We have outcomes based programs that are individualized to each participant. We track progress on a monthly basis and report the outcomes to the Department of Mental Health. Each participant is involved in creating his/her plan on a yearly basis, and addendums can be made to the individual plan as needed at any time. The participants are continually working on goals that increase their personal quality of life.
Long-Term Success In the long term our success is seen in individual accomplishments and skill building in our participants. For some of the older participant, success is seen in maintaining skills rather than regressing. Our participants and their families and guardians always have a choice about who they receive residential services from, and we also view success as their continued confidence in Life Unlimited.
Program Success Monitored By Program success examples include attainment of a three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), the highest level of achievement an organization can obtain. Other examples of success include weekly reviews and continued support of all services by the Missouri Division of Developmental Disabilities, annual stakeholder satisfaction survey returns of 100% satisfaction, and the continued quality, expansion and growth of the services we offer.
Our greatest examples of program success are those whom we serve. Many individuals have been served by Life Unlimited for more than 20 years, many have achieved significant weight goals, and all strive to reach an optimal goal of 98% personal outcome implementation. All of these means of measurement are only a few examples of success experienced by the men and women Life Unlimited serves.   
Examples of Program Success One Individualized Supported Living apartment serves two young men. Setting up a home for two college age men, challenged physically. Nathan, who survived a gun shooting accident at age 12 resulting in a Spinal Cord Injury, spent his teenage years living in a nursing home. Now in his 20's, Nathan moved into his own apartment (supported by Life Unlimited). In less than a year Nathan and Life Unlimited staff improved his health by minimizing medications and maximizing preventative care. Nathan's attitude has improved as he now has a support system to help him achieve his goals and dreams. Nathan enjoys public speaking and inspiring others with his life story.  In 2010, Nathan completed his first college course with a final grade of A+. Nathan said, "If it wasn't for Life Unlimited, I would be still in the nursing home."  Through the newly established employment program, Nathan is now employed.
Description

The My Day program provides a unique opportunity for its participants to increase and maintain quality of life. With the help of families, guardians, service coordinators and Life Unlimited staff, the men and women we serve determine and meet their own personally identified goals.  By providing a lower-than-average ratio of staff to participants, many severely disabled individuals who have not been well supported by other programs thrive in this environment. Each week a variety of activities are offered including, but not limited to:

  • Performing and Visual Arts
  • Communication Skills
  • Community Outings
  • Computer Skills
  • Family Contact and Friendships – Visits, letters, cards, phone calls, Skype and Facetime
  • Life skills and Money Skills
  • Personal Care – Manicures, pedicures, hair care, make-up, hygiene
  • Reading, writing & math skills
  • Volunteering – Meals on Wheels, Harvesters, Martha Lafite Nature Center, Life Unlimited Thrift Shop, Salvation Army and nursing homes.

Long-Term Success

Because Immacolata Manor is committed to helping individuals with developmental disabilities have rights to dignity and self-determination, we have identified the following goals.

Goal: Individuals will participate in quarterly meetings regarding rights to choice and advocacy a minimum of 4 times a year (quarterly).

Progress Measure: Program managers will submit progress reports and meeting notes once a quarter.

Goal: Individuals will make significant progress toward their individualized support plan (ISP) at least 80% of the time.

Progress Measure: Center for Human Services service coordinators will verify each individual’s progress toward their ISP in intermittent and quarterly reviews.

Examples of Program Success
Many individuals come to My Day from circumstances characterized by isolation.  A priority for the program is to help them become comfortable enough to have access to all the resources the program and the community at large have to offer. Drew joined My Day as a full time participant after her family moved to the Kansas City area. Her sister/guardian, Sandra, asked to attend the first month with Drew to make her feel more comfortable. This was agreed upon and a start date set. 
 
On Drew's first day she was greeted by staff and peers that soon became her friends. Before long Drew left her sister at the table to go do her own thing.  Sandra stayed in the background the rest of the day. The same thing happened the next day. Drew interacted with everyone and was doing great. The following day Sandra asked staff to call if they or Drew needed her. Drew did not need her sister by her side any longer. She felt protected and engaged.

Short-Term Success Immacolata Manor is unique in having a Health Care Program. Most residential providers ask their non-medically trained, direct support staff to take residents to the doctor, follow up on medical referrals, etc. Beyond the current health care model, which includes daily monitoring of residents’ conditions and medication regimens, staff also accompany residents to hospital and clinic appointments and remain onsite during hospital stays. This is reassuring to the residents and their families who are often unable to be available. To support and advocate for our residents at this level requires additional staff time at $250-300 per day; service like this is not supported by existing funding and must be paid for in other ways.
Long-Term Success

Although our population is small, our services are intense. We feel that health care needs are extremely important and find that as residents’ age, these needs expand dramatically. By having one person responsible for a particular individual’s medical care follow-up, it makes the staff person more accountable and facilitates communication to the right people about medical care. IM is a leader in subscribing to and promoting this health care model throughout the metro area.  

Program Success Monitored By Though it is difficult to measure success with those we serve as their needs are interminable, the Health Team regularly measures medication administration errors, resulting in a 45% decrease in med errors over the last year; many residents have achieved significant weight goals since the introduction of our new residential menu program offering heart healthy diets to meet weight and nutritional needs, and IM is home to the first RN in Missouri to become a Certified Developmental Disabilities Nurse (CDDN). 
Examples of Program Success Nothing says success like the quality of life lived by our consumers and the changes witnessed in those we serve. “They brought Patty in as an emergency placement. She was scared and physically very weak - slumped forward in her wheelchair, drooling uncontrollably. She was angry and would spit, shake her finger or yell when provoked. We reformed her medications, and started her on vitamins and a mechanical diet. She began to gain weight and energy, displaying a beautiful smile, sparkling expressive eyes and keen sense of humor. A year later doctors could not believe her transformation; her eyes were bright, she was alert, healthy and eating. We had reduced or removed most of her medications previously prescribed for “behavior control”. It took a lot of people working together, but we became her family, providing love, nurturing, patience and quality health care. She came to us broken and became whole.” In her final days IM staff provided round the clock care...from Hospice to Heaven.

Short-Term Success

The ultimate change resulting from employment services and supported employment services will be for individuals with intellectual or other disabilities to acquire marketable job skills. The goal will be to have 80% of job candidates obtain meaningful jobs in the community, earn minimum wage or higher, and become a working consumer.

Program Success Monitored By

Individuals seeking employment are required to go through a formal process and recommended to employment services by program managers of the organization or referrals from outside agencies, career assessments and observations are used in the screening process, job shadows and job tryouts are tools to recognize commitment, task analysis is used to record progress on the job by job coaches and the feedback from the employer validates if program is working.

Examples of Program Success

Since the inception of employment services in Spring of 2016, currently being structured into a credible service for the organization, 2 months into the program began the actions of working with one or two individuals seeking employment. To date, employment services has worked with 7 individuals, 6 out of the 7 have become employed; the organization is hopeful this service or program will grow because of seeing recent results. Individuals working towards employment goals, and achieving employment it has given them confidence, validates their self-worth, and makes them feel a part of something bigger.

Short-Term Success People with disabilities learn how to access the community, interact with the public, make purchases, participate with others in social settings; and learn specific skills such as sports, dieting, exercise, etc. Every day that a person with a severe disability can remain on his own or with family enhances that person's life and saves the public money.
Long-Term Success People with Developmental Disabilities who live in the community will participate in the social life of the community as opposed to experiencing segregation and social isolation. Some people with significant, lifelong disabilities will be able to remain living on their own or with families, without additional paid support.
Program Success Monitored By People served, families, and others who know the people served are surveyed to determine their level of satisfaction with the program.
Examples of Program Success The following are quotes from family members about the community recreation program: "Overall I feel that the recreation program is important to my son/daughters development" "Participating in the program services promotes the knowledge of and utilization of community resources" "Participation in the program enhances decision making skills" "Participation in the program increases self esteem" "I can’t imagine life before Concerned Care"
CEO Comments On behalf of the men and women we serve, we continue to focus on the values and principles of community membership, self-determination, human rights and basic needs. The need for programs supporting adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities continues to grow, and we are always seeking new ways to serve the more than 500 adults with developmental disabilities on the state of Missouri’s waiting list.  Our My Day program (day habilitation services) is designed to help individuals stay in their natural homes longer and we are continue to strengthen those services for a population that often experiences the onset of physical and mental challenges (dementia, Alzheimer’s disease) earlier in life than the general population.  
 
With the merging of the organizations, Life Unlimited is now about to provide even more supports and services to men and women with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including a new community employment program designed help individuals identify and prepare for meaningful jobs.
 
With a strong foundation built on years of excellent service, we look forward to offering innovative supports that will help men and women with developmentat disabilities experience life with unlimited possibilities!

CEO Comments Presently, Missouri is the 3rd lowest of all states in individuals with developmental disabilities working in the community. Many My Day participants were unsuccessful in full-time employment and are presently attending the day program full-time. The Manor is in the process of developing a community employment program that will focus on helping individuals who cannot work full-time, but who have the desire and ability to work part time in meaningful jobs. This will have several benefits to the individuals we serve and to the overall developmental disability community. The greatest benefit is that individuals with the desire and ability to work will have increased fulfillment and independence. Additionally, individuals who currently attend a day program full-time will decrease their day habilitation hours by working, allowing more individuals to benefit from day services.

We also never want to forget the wonderful help and support provided us by all the volunteers and staff at the Life Unlimited Thrift Shop. In the coming years, our dedication to capacity building to ensure the future support of the men and women we serve will be of highest priority.
