Alternative Model of Care Thrives in Wisconsin
When Wisconsin closed several institutions in the early 2000's, over 150 individuals were left with few options for care. By implementing SimplyHome technology, the majority of these individuals were able to remain in their own communities, and they continue living independently today. Meanwhile, the provider’s daily rate decreased from $236/day per individual in 2004 to less than $100/day in 2011.
