Always in Touch – a complimentary telephone reassurance program that provides companionship to seniors and disabled adults. Always in Touch offers daily check-ins or weekly socialization calls providing a sense of security that the senior is not alone.

Always in Touch is not a referral service or medical alert service, nor is it a substitute for professional medical advice or for the care that patients receive from their physicians and medical advisors. In the event of a medical emergency you must call your doctor or 911 immediately.

Click here for enrollment application.

Individuals may refer themselves or be referred by a caregiver, medical professional, family member, or service provider. Always in Touch serves seniors or disabled adults who are isolated, living alone, or in need of daily contact. This may be temporary while recuperating from an illness or surgery, or it may be a more permanent situation. Married couples are also eligible for Always in Touch.

Family Weekend Retreats are designed to adapt all recreational activities for campers with mild to severe medical conditions or disabilities while including the entire family.

Family Weekend Retreats are held at Camp CAMP in Center Point, Texas, on a beautiful 55-acre property along the Guadalupe River.

Over the weekend, campers and their families take part in classic camping activities. Activities like canoeing, horseback riding, swimming, music, sports and recreation, arts and crafts, and outdoor cooking.

During these inclusive weekends, families enjoy private, climate-controlled cabins which begin Friday evening and end Sunday afternoon. All meals are provided, and CAMP can accommodate many special diets. Campers must be accompanied by at least one parent/guardian to provide direct support during the event.

Due to the generosity of Methodist Healthcare Ministry of South Texas, Inc., which has underwritten all program expenses, there is no fee to attend.

The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) provides comprehensive support to Family members with special needs. EFMP takes an all-inclusive approach to coordinate military and civilian community, educational, medical, housing, and personnel services to help Soldiers and their Families with special needs.

An Exceptional Family Member is a Family member with any physical, emotional, developmental, or intellectual disorder that requires special treatment, therapy, education, training, or counseling, and meets the eligibility criteria.

Soldiers with Exceptional Family Members need to register for EFMP and keep enrollment information current. This way, Family needs will be considered during the OCONUS assignments process.

If you’re eligible for EFMP services, Family members must be screened and enrolled when they accompany authorized Soldiers on OCONUS assignments. Screenings include Medical Records review for all Family members and developmental screening for children 72 months and younger.

Click here to find an EFMP service near you.

Who must enroll in the program?

  • U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) Soldiers in the Active Guard Reserve (AGR) Program
  • Army National Guard (ARNG) AGR personnel serving under the authority of 10 USC and 32 USC. Department of the Army civilian employees do not enroll in the program.

You must identify dependent children with special education and medically related service needs and Family members with medical needs each time they process for an assignment to a location outside the United States where Family member travel is authorized at government expense.

Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) make it possible for adults with IDD to live with their biological family or non-relatives, and the cost to Texas taxpayers is about 1/3 the cost associated with “Group Home” expenses billed through Medicaid. The IRS also allows families to claim those funds as non-reportable/non-taxable. Mission Road is honored to participate as a provider of Adult Host Companion Care (formerly Foster Care).

Our Mission Road Host Companion Care program partners with families to provide professional training, oversight, and often immediate and urgent assistance. We help families and caregivers create and maintain a safe home environment where adults with IDD can flourish socially, emotionally, and physically.

While the ISS services program is funded by the Medicaid waiver programs of HCS/TxHmLv and DBMD, we do accept individuals funded through CLASS, ICF, GR, and private pay.

Please note we do not accept Medicaid such as Molina, Star Plus or other HMOs.

MRDC provides in-home and family support services to children and adults with IDD who choose to remain in their own homes. Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) and other Medicaid waiver programs ensure each individual's welfare in the community and help to prevent or delay people from being placed into institutions.

A team of professionals and family members develop a plan with the individual seeking services to identify the goals and services that a person needs to continue to live in their own home. In this program, MRDC employs paid staff (PAS/HAB) who visit an individual’s home according to the individual’s treatment plan to provide services.

Typically, these services are rendered for a few hours each week.
