These homes serve 35 elderly people. Training and assistance are provided with the primary purpose of maintaining adaptive skill levels. There are five senior community homes, each serving seven to eight individuals.
In addition to having a place to live, individuals residing in these homes receive assistance with activities of daily living and individualized skill acquisition training. Emphasis is placed on socialization skills, leisure skills, community activities and maintenance of self-help skills. Programs are designed to meet the need for a more relaxed and flexible schedule for older folks with emphasis on maintaining independence and participation as senior members of the community.
