Developmental Disability Program
This program provides long-term, residential placement in private (Life Sharing) homes for individuals diagnosed with intellectual disabilities, who are not able to live in their own home. Some attend day programs or sheltered workshops while others stay at home. Some are high functioning and able to care for most of their daily needs with reminders while others are profoundly developmentally disabled and require total care. These individuals are usually adults over the age of 18 and are in need of caregivers. (Those who provide care for them are known as caregivers).
In our agency, these services are identical to Family Living, except that more than two individuals are permitted to live in one home.
