Wait lists could grow

More than 300 Kansans on the waiting lists who receive no services or limited services live in Shawnee County, said Mary Ann Keating, executive director of TARC. She said the group is one of the larger providers assisting the developmentally disabled in Shawnee County, where it has operated since 1954.

Keating said TARC offers "residential services" that enable people with developmental disabilities to carry out activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing or feeding themselves; and "day services," which include opportunities for employment, academic enrichment, socialization, development of new skills and participation in community activities.
Keating said she understood the closure and realignment commission sought to save money when it recommended the state move people from institutions into the community. She said it costs the state about $150,000 a year to care for a person in an institution compared to about $35,000 a year to provide services to enable someone to live out in the community.
But if the state plans to increase its focus on providing community-based care to the developmentally disabled, Keating said, it should provide local agencies the resources to ensure those people can be cared for effectively.
Keating said that because the state's institutions enjoy "a lot more resources" than community-based services, families of developmentally disabled people who have long resided in hospitals or group homes feel concerned they won't be as well-cared for out in the community.
For example, Keating suggested the state should provide enough funding to organizations to ensure they can pay a living wage to employees who work with the developmentally disabled.
She said the professionals who provide direct service to those patients at institutions are generally paid $12 to $12.50 an hour, while reimbursement from the state only enables TARC to pay $8 to $8.50 an hour to employees who do the same work out in the community.
