DCLS operates four staffed residences (formerly known as “group homes”) in three different residential neighborhoods in Delta. The goal of this service is to provide a safe, secure environment where persons served can have the highest quality of life in a community-based, residential setting. Residences are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days year.
Residents share common areas of the house and enjoy their own private bedroom arranged and decorated according to their individual tastes. Residential staff provide ongoing assistance with daily routines. As licensed homes, each staffed residence meets all licensing requirements with respect to nutrition, documentation and other health and safety protocols. Each home also has transportation available. Residents are supported to access their community and participate in activities meaningful to each individual in the home.
DCLS’ staffed residential services includes a specialized residential option called Intensive Adult Residential Care, which supports individuals who exhibit more complex needs and who may benefit from an environment that is individualized, safe and secure.
