     Services Offered at Bethshan

Bethshan is committed to providing an environment that is responsive to the needs and expectations of the members it serves. Placement at each of our programs is structured to provide varying levels of supervision and assistance appropriate to the level of functioning of each member. Each member is supported by a QMRP(Qualified Mental Retardation Professional) who works as their liaison and advocate; coordinating needed services and supports. The intent is to enable each member to achieve greater levels of independence. Services coordinated by the QMRP may include: Speech Therapy, Occupational and / or Physical Therapy, Psychological Services, Medical Services and Therapeutic Recreation.

Bethshan provides its comprehensive medical care through its staff of licensed nurses. In addition, Bethshan utilizes the professional services of many medical professionals which include: a pharmaceutical company, a dentist, a podiatrist, an optometrist, a psychiatrist, a neurologist, medical records, and an orthopedic surgeon. All of these dedicated professionals work together to provide Bethshan with distinguished medical treatment. These services are not only administered according to regulatory guidelines, but also in keeping with Bethshan's commitment to providing outstanding services to our members.

Bethshan continues to expand its services by supporting programs in four southwestern suburbs of the Chicago metropolitan area. In addition to its larger ICF/DD programs, Bethshen operates several CILA programs (Community Integrated Living Arrangement). The purchase of individual homes and apartment buildings for these programs supports the mission of Bethshan in seeking greater independence and security for each member it serves. Bethshan strives to promote acceptance, accessibility, and inclusion in church and community life for all persons served, including those with the most severe disabilities.
