What are Residential Services?
Specialized Residential Services are for adults with a mental illness and/or a developmental disabilities that meet eligibility criteria. Residential settings provide a warm, homelike atmosphere, and are located in Tuscola County. The goal of the specialized residential program is to improve the quality of life of the residents by creating a supportive environment that fosters personal growth, dignity and the achievement of a more independent living status. Each consumer has an individually designed service plan based on his/her unique needs, abilities, and desires. By placing positive emphasis on personal responsibility, we hope to broaden the scope of life choices for residents and their ability to make decisions that are essential to becoming full citizens of their communities. Services/interventions are implemented to support the recovery or stabilization of the person served, reduce symptoms, restore function and prevent additional functional impairment.
Residential homes are staffed with training and qualified program support staff 24 hours per day. A program supervisor who is responsible for managing the home and implementing services supervises the staff.
