Fostering Independence

Continuous Residential Services for People Suffering From I/DD

At Hands of Heartland, we do everything that we can to ensure that adults with developmental disabilities can thrive and live fulfilling lives. One way we do that is through our Continuous Residential Services (formerly referred to as “Group Homes”). We offer a variety of services because not every arrangement is right for every person.

One option offered is assistance finding continuous residential services to best fit your family’s needs. In these situations, multiple disabled adults live together in one home. Here’s what you should know about this type of living situation.

Help is Nearby

Adults living in this type of situation are not completely on their own. The staff members are present around the clock in case there are any problems. They react quickly and do everything that we can to resolve conflicts, keep everyone comfortable, and make safety a priority.
It Fosters Independence
A special needs residential home can give residents a larger sense of independence, even if staff are nearby and on hand to help. A continuous residential home is like any other home, with things that need to be attended to and errands that need to be run. Residents aren't on their own, but they do get the chance to experience many facets of living in their own home and running a household.
Residents Avoid Isolation
It is easy for a disabled adult to become isolated. A home can help nip that problem in the bud. A resident has other residents to interact with, and it can help stop a person from withdrawing into themselves and staying away from social situations that could bring them a lot of joy. We try to match residents with other adults who seem compatible so that the living arrangement is as comfortable as possible for everyone.
Medications are Managed
Another good thing about residential homes is that our staff can help manage medications. We can make sure that dosages are right and that they are delivered on time, whether a resident has just one medication to worry about or a combination of treatments that need to be administered.
