House of Angels creates places and spaces where adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities live, work, learn, and thrive as part of the greater community. Many people with special needs choose to live in our supportive group home. Our homes are staffed with counselors and other workers who help the residents live on their own.
When an individual with special needs cannot live independently but does not require a great deal of advanced care, our group home may be a good choice. We provide individual residences in traditional neighborhoods where each person has his/her own bedroom. The residence is staffed with counselors or other full-time employees paid to assist those who live there. If those living in the home don’t need a high level of care, counselors may only be at the facility from shortly before breakfast till after dinner. One of the positives, which can also be a challenge for certain residents, is the close-knit social setting. Think in terms of dormitory living, including noise levels and shared bathrooms. Group home arrangements may be either state- funded or private pay.
Through hands-on assistance, our trained direct support professionals provide in-home attendant care for those with a physical disability. Various attendant care services are provided based on the specific needs of our clients, and may include assistance with: Eating, bathing and grooming, walking or using a wheelchair, meal preparation, transportation, administering medication, changing bandages, using medical equipment, and other specific needs.
Our habilitation care services are designed to help individuals with developmental disabilities learn or improve the skills and abilities necessary for daily living. Examples of habilitative care include: Personal care, grocery shopping, budgeting, cooking, light housekeeping, and more based on the unique needs of each individual.
Our sponsored placement services serve adults with Developmental Disabilities through an alternative service model from the traditional group home setting. This program provides the same around-the-clock care that one would receive in a group home setting, but in a smaller, more intimate home environment. There can be no more than two individuals in the same home receiving care from a Sponsor, which is a shift from the group home model which can serve up to six individuals. The Sponsor provides all of the care for the individual, and receives the same extensive training required for group home staff.
