Residential Living

Residential Living

Supported 24/7, in a home, in their community…

At the heart of Fayette Resources, Inc. is the National Association of Dual Diagnosis (NADD) certified residential program. Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism and mental health diagnosis live with others of like personalities, who share common interests and have similar capabilities. Our homes are fully staffed 24/7, based on the level of support needed by residents. The focus is to create a home environment that is reflective of the individuals who live there and to promote a supportive environment that encourages choice and growth. 

The primary goals of the residential program are to support individuals in living successfully and independently in the community, to maximize their daily living skills and to increase their ability to cope with life situations.  Caring, well-trained Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) work with individuals to learn new skills drawn from an Individual Support Plan (ISP), which is the consistent and personalized hands-on strategy of support, education, goal planning and implementation. The ISP is developed by the individual, their family/guardian, and a team of professionals who work with and provide support for the individual. The ISP is a tool used by the team and the individual to organize the team’s efforts and to improve the individual’s everyday life and encourage them to achieve the highest level of independence.

The focus of the Fayette Resources, Inc. residential program is to help create and support everyday lives for those who reside with us.

Some areas of goal concentration may include:

• Self Care
• Independence
• Social and personal development
• Intellectual and communication skills
• Money management
• Leisure and recreational
• Community awareness, and mobility

Fayette Resources receives referrals for our residential program from County Behavioral Health Programs or family referrals. A Fayette Resources, Inc. Program Specialist works with family members, guardians, legal representatives, support coordinators and any other interested people to determine the most appropriate home for a consumer, and then plan a series of transition activities between staff and the consumer prior to admission into our program. This collection of interested parties become the consumer’s support “team”.
