License Categories Define Level of Care

Angel View's residential homes are classified as Intermediate Care Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled (ICF/DD). These six-bed health facilities are licensed by the Licensing and Certification Division of the California Department of Public Health to provide 24-hour services. Angel View provides the following residential services:

ICF/DD-H (Habilitative)
Angel View's ICF/DD-H homes provide 24-hour personal care, habilitation, developmental, and supportive health services to six or fewer people with developmental disabilities who have intermittent recurring needs for nursing services, but have been certified by a physician and surgeon as not requiring availability of continuous skilled nursing care.

ICF/DD-N (Nursing)
Angel View's ICF/DD-H homes provide 24-hour personal care, developmental services, and nursing supervision for people with developmental disabilities who have intermittent recurring needs for skilled nursing care but have been certified by a physician and surgeon as not requiring continuous skilled nursing care. These homes serve medically fragile children and young adults who have developmental disabilities or demonstrate significant developmental delay that may lead to a developmental disability if not treated.

In addition to ICF/DD homes, Angel View operates two other types of residential programs for people with developmental disabilities: DD/CNC and CLHF homes.

DD/CNC
Angel View's DD/CNC home, the Melvyn Haber Home, is a six-bed facility that provides residents with continuous nursing care. Clients are medically fragile and have developmental disabilities, but do not require acute care.

CLHF Home
In addition, Angel View operates a six-bed home, the Jack Surnow Home, licensed as a Congregate Living Health Facility, or a CLHF home. Residents of this special home benefit from a variety of therapies, 24-hour nursing care, individualized programs and community integration.

Timmy’s Story

Timmy spent his childhood baffling the medical community. His digestive issues and seizure activity were so profound, doctors didn’t understand how he could still be alive. His mom devoted herself to medical research and finding a place that could care for her son. Between hospitalizations, he lived in various group homes in New York. At the last one, he had so many injuries his mom sought another solution. They headed west.

Since moving into an Angel View home, Timmy is calmer, more expressive, and has far fewer seizures. He loves the staff, his housemates, our therapy dogs and his word board. He’s so adored by staff, his mother says happily, “Now he has more than one mommy.”
