A: Yes.

Q:  Must all home staff including managers or home supervisors work with the MTS?

Q:  Will the MTS work with other consumers living at the home?

A: Typically, no.   However, if help is needed or if it impacts the individual receiving services from the Center for Positive Living Supports (the Center), the MTS will work anyone in the home.

Q:  What if home staff does not agree with the MTS about how to handle a particular situation?

A. Staff or supervisors should inform MTS of the concern.  If this does not resolve the issue, a call should be placed to the MTS Supervisor, John Williams, at (248) 721-2131.

Q:  Will the MTS be completing our daily paperwork?

A: No.   They have their own data sheets and IR forms to complete.  A copy will be provided to home, if requested.

Q:  What happens at the end of the week?

A: If possible, another Center staff will stop by the home to see how the week progressed. A report will be sent to the CMHSP listing specific recommendations for the individual served and specific training recommendations for home staff.

Q:  What if we start having difficulties after the MTS leaves?

A: Call the responsible CMHSP to determine whether the Center team should be consulted.  They, in turn, can contact the Center for further assistance.  It is possible that the MTS can return to the home in situations in which authorization is received and all parties agree the MTS may be helpful.
