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.
Francisco

Francisco’s Story

Three days before his 18th birthday Francisco was in a car accident. The driver was unhurt, but Francisco, who attended Palm Springs High School, suffered a traumatic brain injury. Since then, he’s lived with his parents, who along with his siblings, provide his care.

Now 37, Francisco attends the Angel View Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities. One of his accomplishments is his improved punctuality. He’s ready each morning when our driver picks him up. These days, instead of sleeping in, Francisco enjoys companionship, recreation and therapeutic activities. He’s learning work skills like document shredding that will enable him to participate in our new work placement program. He can’t wait!
