Services are provided in the home or community of the individual served. Service hours can be up to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Services are provided for adult individuals.
Residential Services may be provided in the client’s home. The preferences and routines of individuals served are supported through the program. So that the needs of the individual served are met appropriately, regular, ongoing communication occurs with guardians and family members by the Residential Management Team. Because client safety is important to us, we conduct stringent background checks that are beyond the required level for direct support staff.
The Residential Services program follows best practices in the field of service delivery for people with disabilities. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), whose purpose is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services.
