As an Intermediate Care Facility, Central Wisconsin Center provides
residential services for more than 200 people with intellectual and
developmental disabilities. Ongoing active treatment is provided so
individuals can acquire skills toward personal independence in order to
attain a high quality of life.
Active treatment is delivered through an interdisciplinary team
process which identifies needs and provides services and treatment in
the areas of medical monitoring and intervention, nursing and personal
care, dental, nutritional, psychological, educational, vocational and
social work services, communication, physical and occupational
therapies, recreational and music therapies. Rehabilitation technology
services provide custom fit individualized wheelchair seating systems.
Ninety-six percent of the people supported at CWC have a profound
intellectual disability and physical and medical needs that require
total assistance in daily cares such as eating, dressing, and bathing, as
well as ongoing medical and nursing care monitoring of their health.
