About Us

We believe that everyone deserves a home filled with love and companionship. We provide exceptional person-centered care aligned with specifically designed individual care plans. Our highly trained staff provide safety, structure and a life filled with laughter, joy and purpose. For many of the people we support, the complexities surrounding their daily care needs are too intensive for their loved ones or other providers. Therefore, a place at Living Well, may be their only choice for long-term care. It is our mission to provide these exceptional services which create fulfilling lives the people we serve so richly deserve.

Many of the people in our care spend years with us because of the level of comfort and service provided. Guardians and families know that people thrive when supported and truly seen.

It is the greatest gift for my oldest child to be in a stable environment, cared for in every way.

Jeff’s Story

A life transformed

Jeff came to Living Well Disability Services when he was just 8 years old unable to speak, communicate his needs, or even walk. But the caring staff at Living Well welcomed him with open arms, patience, and encouragement.

By working with Jeff every day, they earned his trust and gradually helped him turn his frustration into happiness. The staff was able to teach Jeff sign language, letting him finally be heard, connect, and make friends. They even helped Jeff learn to walk on his own. This mobility gave him the independence to get around the house and do his favorite thing in the world – pick up a puzzle, dump out all of the pieces, and put them back together again.
