Our vibrant community provides residential care to more than 240 adults with intellectual disabilities. Unlike group homes for mentally challenged adults, our 170-acre campus consists of three interconnected communities where we provide varying levels of care—from skilled nursing and physical rehabilitation services, to assisted living, to semi-independent care.
Training concentrates on assisting residents in key skill areas—Skills for Life, Job Skills and Leisure Skills. Often, finding jobs for mentally challenged adults can be difficult. Through Job Skills training, many Marbridge residents develop skills that allow them to qualify for community-based or campus-based employment. Our training and education program provides instruction and activities tailored to the individual's needs and abilities. Training is offered on a semester basis, providing a college-like experience for adults who may be leaving home for the first time.
Our resident population represents a diversity of diagnoses, and we offer a distinctly different lifestyle from that offered by most group homes for developmentally disabled adults. We develop an Individual Program Plan (IPP) for each resident, ensuring that each has ample opportunities to learn, experience and achieve a whole new life at Marbridge.
