Progressive Residential Services, Inc. (PRS) began in 1982. During that year, the Administrator of the Corporation, was asked by the State Department of Health to provide services for six (6) residents living in a skilled nursing home. Those residents were substantially disabled with many needs including nursing care. Since that time, PRS has assumed management of four (4) additional facilities and developed a fifth. One of those facilities would be the first to provide services in a community setting to adults with medical needs requiring licensed nurses on-site. Other programs have been modeled after this facility, with PRS receiving visitors from many states, Europe, and Asia. In 1993, the General Accounting Organization sent a team to meet with the Administrator and staff to collect data for the President’s Health Care Reform initiative. During that same year, another group from the federal government used the facility and its staff to produce a training film for Public Health surveyors. In 1998, the United Nations Social Research Unit sent a team to study the services PRS provides to Consumers requiring acute medical care.
