Residential Services were developed in response to the housing needs of people with disabilities, primarily mental illness. Its major goal is to assist people to live as independently as possible.


Group Homes

Group homes are the most structured setting operated by Elm City. Emphasis is on people learning and doing the usual activities encountered in daily living. Group areas such as living room, dining room, and kitchen are shared, as are common tasks such as menu planning, shopping, cooking, and cleaning. In addition, residents become responsible for doing their laundry, making their beds, and taking responsibility for their personal possessions.

Congregate Living

A staff member is available 24 hours a day to assist tasks as needed, help plan for recreational activities, and to find solutions to problems as they arise.

Apartments

Many people live independently throughout Jacksonville. Support services are provided to help a person remain independent. Levels of assistance may range from very minimal contact to daily checks. Services can include balancing checkbooks, decisions on setting up a trip, or checking on making sure medications are being taken as prescribed.
