Unit Name/Location: Murphy Place, Bloomington, MN 55431

Description: Provide support to individuals with developmental disabilties. Murphy Place is a home for 2 gentlemen and 2 ladies. These individuals have lived together for numerous years and function more as family members rather than housemates. The individuals are active and sometimes prefer to do most activities at home, but enjoy going into the community for fun activities. One individual enjoys sports and going to any baseball game. Another individual is active in theatre and enjoys rehearsing his lines and having his housemates attend his community plays. One individual is on hospice and prefers staying home much of the time, but likes to be active by singing, doing crafts, and visiting with her family. Another individual just loves being the center of attention in any activity. Three of the individuals have family involvement and those relationships are very important to them.

Two of the individuals have behavioral support plans. One gentleman needs prompting to talk about his feelings but redirect him so he does not perseverate on his thoughts. He also has auditory hallucinations. Another individual needs to be busy with activities so she does not engage in mild self-injurious behavior. When the behavioral support plans are followed, these behaviors are minimal.

One lady, who is on hospice, is still active, but requires staff to keep a close eye on her pain management.

Part of the job in all the homes are household tasks and supporting the individuals to the best of their abilities to clean their bathrooms, laundry, dusting, vacuuming etc..
