Residential Services

L.I.F.E.'s Residential Program is designed to enhance the overall quality of life for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities.

Active community involvement tailored to the abilities and interest of the individual is the goal of Residential Services. Whether through living in a Group Home or an ALU or through supports in the individual’s own home, L.I.F.E. assists the individual to reach their maximum potential.

L.I.F.E. offers a variety of residential service preferences depending on an Individual’s needs, ranging from 24-hour support in a licensed agency owned home, to drop–in support in one of our homes or an individual’s own home.

Residential programL.I.F.E. provides Group Homes, Alternative Living Houses (ALU) Individual Support Services (ISS), Personal Supports (PS), Family Support Services (FSS) and Community Support Services (CSS) so that individuals can access the service supports appropriate to their needs and can change supports as their abilities grow.

L.I.F.E. encourages our individuals to take an active part in the décor of their home from uniquely decorated common rooms to individualized private space.

L.I.F.E. homes seek to provide a family atmosphere with individuals sharing responsibility for the appearance of the home. Individuals are encouraged to participate in their community. Participation is determined by each person’s program plan which includes annual goals for personal growth and progress towards increased independence.

While L.I.F.E. strives to assist individuals to be self-reliant, we also recognize that some people with disabilities have greater needs and require additional assistance. L.I.F.E. staff are trained to provide for individuals whether that means total care for all daily living tasks, such as bathing, toileting, eating and dressing or occasional support for more difficult tasks like budgeting or vacation planning.

L.I.F.E. Residential Services are licensed through the Developmental Disabilities Administration of the Maryland Department of Health.
