Supervised Living Facilities Bill of Rights Training - Minnesota Dept. of Health

Supervised Living Facilities Bill of Rights Training

Minnesota's Olmstead Plan was developed to ensure that people with disabilities are living, learning, working, and enjoying life in the most integrated setting. Prevention of Abuse and Neglect is one of the topics included in a comprehensive plan to educate people with disabilities and their families, mandated reporters and the general public about how to identify and report abuse, and how to prevent it from occurring.

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) supports the concept of a public education campaign for individuals with disabilities, families, providers, and advocates that addresses prevention and includes a discussion about rights. The Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities, in collaboration with MDH, produced this package of resources around the Bill of Rights for Supervised Living Facilities:

Know Your Rights: Easy Read Guide (PDF)
The guide is a simplified version of the Health Care Bill of Rights for Residents of Supervised Living Facilities. The 25 rights are presented in plain English with images that help to explain each of the rights.

Know Your Rights: Resident Workbook (PDF)
The Resident Workbook explains what each right is about and includes lessons to aid in understanding.

Know Your Rights: Instructor Handbook (PDF)
The Instructor Handbook is a resource for staff, families, guardians, advocates, and educators to help residents understand their rights, recognize and report instances of abuse and neglect, and help with prevention efforts.
