History of RSSI, Inc.

Founded by MHPI in 1999, Residential Support Services, Inc. (RSSI) delivers supportive housing services to elderly and disabled tenants living in MHPI-owned properties. With funding from government (Medicaid through Group Adult Foster Care), insurance, and private sources, RSSI’s staff help individuals maintain independent living by assisting with Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL). Among the services available are:

  • assisting the client in complying with health care provider instructions
  • obtaining medical care from physician or emergency room if the client should become ill
  • reminders to client medication
  • assistance with laundry
  • supervision and assistance with activities of daily living (such as bathing, dressing and toileting)
  • cleaning and general housekeeping
  • assistance with shopping
  • provision of, or arranging for transportation

The staff also coordinates the provision of medical and psychiatric medications. The resulting program provides clients with the assurance that they will receive the personal care and attention they need; the guidance and support to promote well-being by supporting their physical and emotional health to prevent rest or nursing home placement, and the opportunity to regain some of their independence and live in a dignified and meaningful way as they age in place.
