Answering Your Key Questions
We want to get to know you! Through conversations, meet-and-greets, tours of the homes and gathering information. Determining a good fit involves shared decision-making and discussion with the individual and their support circle, including the Regional Center and family members. It is important to consider care needs and preferences as well as good matches to peer groups, interests, and activities.
Everyone has different needs and preferences. Placement length is determined by individual choices and required support needs. Each person is assessed regularly to evaluate changing needs. Our goal is to create a positive environment where people grow. For some that could be a lifetime, for others a natural chapter before their next phase of life.
A variety of funding sources support Residential opportunities. Funding can often be confusing and overwhelming — we’ll help you figure it out along with the Regional Center. Everyone has different benefits available. Services are generally covered through an individual’s benefits, such as Social Security, Medi-Cal, or Regional Center funding. Payeeship support is also available.
