Devereux is proud to offer services for adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Through our residential and placement services in the community, we help individuals learn the skills needed for independent living and making meaningful life choices. Supportive settings in comfortable home environments ensure that individuals have access to services that are appropriate to their developmental level and cognitive, emotional and social abilities.
Each person’s goals and strengths are integrated into an individualized care plan that promotes progressive independence.
We support individuals over the age of 22 with diagnoses such as:
Residential Services offer congregate living for individuals in the community with 24 hour assistance from highly trained staff. This safe, warm, empathic home environment promotes well-being, and programming is designed to strengthen decision-making skills in community based settings.
Placement Services offer individuals the opportunity to share living space in a family home in the community. Caregivers in the home are specially trained to assist individuals with processing through their options and making choices for living, working and participating in the community. Caregivers support the individual’s objectives and provide access to activities and resources in the community.
Devereux’s Adult Services emphasize long-term stability and safety for individuals while enhancing their autonomy in community settings.
