Our Residential Services are designed to enable adults with disabilities to enjoy the independence of having a home of their own while being near family and friends. Individuals, whose disabilities limit their independence, may share a home with others who need similar support to ensure their well being twenty-four hours a day. Staff training is designed to ensure safety while promote independence and respecting residents’ rights as shareholders in their home.
Each home is well-integrated within its neighborhood, and household members are assisted in forming new relationships with friends and neighbors in the community. House exteriors and yards are well-maintained, providing a high quality outdoor environment that is enjoyable for both residents and their neighbors. Furnishings are comfortable, functional, and in good taste. Household members are encouraged to share their preferences in home décor and to bring personal items.
Meals are planned to take into account what each person likes to eat, as well as the dietary limitations or restrictions of each person. Household members assist with grocery shopping, meal planning and preparation, and other regular household activities.
Individuals are assisted in the development of leisure time activities that reflect their personal preferences and interests. They are encouraged to maintain relationships with family and friends outside of the home, and to build new friendships by participating in community activities. Each individual has a plan of care designed to assist them in achieving their maximum individual potential.
If you or a member of your family would like to move to a more independent setting, but would require some help in doing so, contact the office of Home and Community Options or your case manager.
