Adult Developmental Homes
An Adult Developmental Home is a residential setting in a family home in which a licensed caregiver provides 24-hour care and supervision for up to three individuals with developmental disabilities ages 18 and over. An Adult Developmental Home is a safe and comfortable haven for individuals with a wide range of disabilities, medical conditions, and/or behavioral issues, and who cannot live with their own family. We at DEC can assist in connecting adult individuals with developmental disabilities to home care providers.
