PAHrtners Deaf Services offers residential programs to adults with psychological, behavioral health and/or intellectual challenges.
Residents live in a supportive atmosphere amongst peers but receive staff services and oversight as determined by the individual’s needs and functioning level. Each resident’s care is overseen by the interdisciplinary treatment team, which includes: the resident, residential support services, case management, therapeutic and psychiatric services, a nurse and family members.
The goal of the residential program is to provide Deaf individuals with a community-based home that offers the level of care they need, promotes independence and teaches necessary living skills, such as: money management, transportation skills, personal hygiene, medication management, food purchase and preparation and the use of technology.
Apartments with one, two or three bedrooms are available. All units are equipped with Deaf-friendly technology, strobe lights, videophones, etc. Some of our homes are barrier-free for residents with mobility needs.
Participants in the residential program may work, attend PAHrtners’ Day Program or engage in other educational activities.
