Living Well Disability Services owns and operates welcoming homes in 33 locations throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding counties for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Creating a home environment includes providing choices – choices about everything from the colors of the bedspread and curtains, the flowers planted in the garden, and recreational activities in the community.
Residential Services provides individual choices about daily living, health services and recreational opportunities. Innovation in service, accessibility, wellness, and technology help people pursue their goals. We currently offer Residential Services in six counties: Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Sherburne and Wright.
Daily living supports may include activities that enhance decision-making skills, develop sensory and motor skills, develop interpersonal skills, money management, and household responsibilities. Daytime support is provided for people who choose not to participate in outside employment, day training or habilitative services.
All of the daily living supports are designed to be person-centered and outcome based, helping individuals achieve their goals.
Access to community activities is made possible by safely operated and fully accessible vehicles. Outings are based on individual choice and examples include visiting family and friends, attending church and medical appointments, participating on sports teams, and working out at a health club.
Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities may face a wide range of physical health needs. For individuals living in our homes, we provide nursing services, nutritional assessment and meal planning, occupational therapy assessments, environmental adaptations, assistive technology and communication devices, adaptive equipment, sensory integration and massage therapy.
Innovative wellness programming creates an opportunity for people to reduce their need for medication and increase their mobility. Results include a reduction in health related crises and reduced health care costs.
Joy is a core value at Living Well Disability Services, and everyone is encouraged to participate. We provide leisure and recreation assessment through our Therapeutic Recreation Program. Each home participates in our Garden Therapy Program, and individuals may participate in expanded wellness activities based on their personal interests.
Opportunities to be active in one’s own community through volunteering, taking classes, making new friends and maintaining relationships with family and friends are all part of a whole and active lifestyle. At Living Well Disability Services, we work hard to ensure everyone can choose their own level of activity and engagement.
