Medicaid Waiver

A Medicaid Waiver can pay for a number of different services available at Maple Seed Farms so there is no cost to a family. These services could be at The Farm, in the community, or the family home.

Our programs can be in a group setting or 1:1. We'll cover a wide range of topics including: housekeeping skills, teamwork, or even job training skills. These are all available in the warm, natural environment of a family home in a farm setting.


Day Programming

Our Day Program (Facility Habilitation Individual and/or Group) gives individuals an opportunity to socialize, learn new skills, and enjoy a meaningful day.

Activities at Maple Seed Farms include cooking, community volunteering, arts and crafts, and activities of daily living. Each individual has goals specific to their area of interest and need as well as to their functioning level. These are monitored by MSF staff in an easy to understand manner to help show individuals and their families their progress.

Individuals can also participate in skill-building groups that address issues such as communication, relationships, community safety, hygiene, menu planning, shopping, budgeting, and other topics that help improve their quality of life.

Facility Habilitation Individual and Group (FHG4/IO): are services provided here at the Farm and can be in a group setting of 4:1 or on a 1:1 basis. This provides supportive learning and assistance in self-care, daily living skills, communication, social skills, leisure activities, educational activities, and acquiring other skills that enable the individual to become more independent, integrated and productive in the community.
