Narrative

We operate 30 group residences throughout southeastern Massachusetts for individuals with developmental disabilities, acquired brain injury and traumatic brain injury. People receive the support and attention required to lead an independent, well adjusted, and full life, and they actively participate in all areas of their daily lives.

Homes for those with greater needs are also staffed by a team of Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) and Certified Nursing Aides (CNAs). Additional medical, psychological, and therapeutic resources are available through our Clinical Services Department.

Each home offers 24-hour support and supervision, along with the following services:

  • Individualized, needs-based programs
  • Integrated clinical services in everyday living activities
  • Nursing care and certified staff providing medication administration and management
  • Medical, physical and cognitive assistance
