Residential Services: General Information



In an effort to reduce the stress of entering a group living environment and to maximize normalization, we strive for a home-like environment that approximates most resident's normal living environments. While our program provides varying degrees of structure necessary to help people learn to better order and organize the tasks associated with day-to-day life; we also strive to keep each of our programs non-institutional in character and flexible enough to be able to respond to the individual needs of each person.

All residences are staffed 24 hours a day. The staffing consists of Residential Instructors and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN's) who are under the direct supervision of a Registered Nurse. The number of staff assigned to each group home is determined by the levels of supervision required for residents in each site. Additional staff may be accessed during times of increased supervision needs. An RN as well as Residential Services Supervisory Staff are on call to assist with after hours emergencies.
