- Bassett Creek is an accessible home in Crystal. A unique feature of the home is that there are LPNs on staff 24/7. Thus, individuals interested in living at Bassett Creek should have medical needs that warrant this level of care. Our nurses and Program Counselors are trained in working with individuals with seizure disorders, diabetes, mobility issues, depressive tendencies, paraplegia and quadriplegia, cerebral palsy, catheters, gastrostomies, respiratory disorders (such as COPD and prolonged respiratory failure), tracheotomies, hydrocephalus, skin irritations, constipation, mitral valve prolapse, tactile and sensory sensitivities, allergies (including seasonal, medication, latex and topical allergens), skin irritations, and scoliosis. However, this is not an exhaustive list of conditions that can be accommodated.Another unique feature of the home is that an in-home day treatment and habilitation (DT&H) program is available on site for those who may be interested in this option. Services are provided by another company and admission is voluntary. Admission to Bassett Creek is not dependent on admission to the DT&H. There are currently two men and one woman living in the home. They are between the ages of 48 and 64. All are non-verbal, require the use of a wheelchair, have high medical needs, function in the profound range of intellectual disabilities and are quite vulnerable. Thus, individuals interested in living at Bassett Creek should have similar needs to those currently living in the home. The home is on a quiet street in Crystal near the Bassett Creek Park. There is a lovely, fenced backyard that individuals enjoy throughout the spring, summer and fall. There are four bedrooms, a living room, family room, kitchen and large bathroom on the main level of the home. A shower table is available in the bathroom. There is easy access to the garage and lift van. The entire main level of the home is accessible. Staffing in the home currently includes 1 LPN on each shift, including an awake LPN overnight; 1 asleep Program Counselor to assist as needed with emergencies; 2 Program Counselors for most awake hours during the day; a part-time RN Consultant; and a full-time Program Manager.
