Disabilities

Sherburne County Health and Human Services provides case management and support services to persons with disabilities with the goal of assisting individuals to live as independently as possible in the least restrictive setting.

Home Care Services

Home care provides medical and health-related services and assistance with day-to-day activities to people in their home. It can be used to provide short-term care for people moving from a hospital or nursing home back to their home, or it can also be used to provide continuing care to people with ongoing needs. Home care services may also be provided outside the person's home when normal life activities take them away from home.

Home and Community Based Waivers

Minnesotan residents with disabilities or chronic illnesses who need certain levels of care may qualify for the state's home and community based waiver programs. Waivers are intended to promote community living and independence by providing health care and support services based on individual needs. Waivered services are used to supplement, not replace, other funding sources such as insurance, Medical Assistance or Medicare.

Developmental Disabilities

  • Case Management
    Developmental Disabilities (Rule 185) case management for persons with developmental disability or related conditions assists persons in gaining access to needed social, medical, educational and other supports and services.

    The case manager works on behalf of the person to identify their unique needs and to minimize the impact of the disability on the person's life while assuring continuity of services and supports for the person. If you have questions related to eligibility for Developmental Disabilities case management, please contact Sherburne County Health and Human Services at 763-765-4000.
