It’s important to us that Individuals have the opportunity to create a home of their own that mirrors their lifestyle and identity. Our Individuals receive supports in the housing arrangement of their choice; such as a house, apartment, or condominium. Homes may be owned/rented by the individual or provided by Etana.
The support we offer can vary from a few hours a week up to 24 hours per day and maybe one on one or shared. Supports are flexible and provided based on each individual’s needs. We encourage them to make decisions about their homes in order to have a measure of personal control. We ensure safety, comfort, and a life that reflects the pace that each person desires.
Our staff may provide assistance with monthly budgeting and money management including menu planning, grocery shopping, and cooking. We also encourage and support each individual in social/recreational activities with an emphasis on the development of valued social roles.
At Etana we believe that group living arrangements may prepare an individual to move to more independent and individualized supports.
Often, recognizing that your loved one is an adult and that they need to forge their own life is the very first difficult step. The path to letting go is never easy … can we help you begin that journey?
