Washington County MN - Disabilities Adult / Child / Senior - Individuals with Disabilities
The LTCC (Long Term Care Consultation) is a service provided by the county agency to assist individuals and their families in planning, and choosing services. A social worker or nurse will conduct a home assessment with the client and family, at the residence of the client. The consultant can then provide direction and information regarding resources. The client, family, and consultant can then discuss options regarding a care plan, taking into consideration all aspects of the client's unique situation. This is a free service.
An LTCC can also be requested when a person is residing in a nursing facility. This can be useful if someone is looking at moving back into a community setting.
The intake line is the first call for individuals and family members for a variety of services. A telephone screening is done on the intake line to authorize nursing home placement for Washington County residents who need nursing home level care. The public may access the intake line by calling 651-430-6484 during business hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
For more information please contact the adult intake line at 651-430-6484.
Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services Available Services: Washington county can assist residents with an alcohol/drug abuse health assessment process (also known as Rule 25), which consists of:
- A chemical dependency/drug evaluation
- A determination of the need for chemical dependency / drug treatment
If the assessment recommends chemical dependency / drug treatment, funding for treatment through the Consolidated Chemical Dependency Treatment Fund (CCDTF) may be available. CCDTF is a funding source of last resort, and other options for payment must first be explored.
