Over the next few years, people living in Intermediate Care Facilities (ICFs) will be offered the opportunity to enjoy more homelike settings which offer more personal attention, quieter surroundings, and more chances to enjoy the community. OPWDD has already helped many people move from Developmental Centers to smaller settings, where their lives have improved, and now, OPWDD is working to make this possible for people living in ICFs. People will be able to choose their daily activities, be closer to their families, have more space, and live with whom and where they choose.
