Sunnyhill provides tailored residential support to individuals with developmental disabilities in a variety of different settings. Our residential services range from support a few hours a week to 24 hours a day.

Residential services can be delivered in a person’s natural home, in a community based home or in one of our residential facilities. All of our residential supports are provided by personnel trained in abuse and neglect, CPR/first- aid, positive behavioral supports, medication administration, nutrition and personal care.

The goals for our residential supports are:  To foster independence, assist with skill acquisition and development, community participation and inclusion, development of social skills and relationships, to provide a healthy and safe environment, and help the individual to participate in meaningful activities.

24-hour Care

Sunnyhill’s community based Independent Supported Living Medicaid Waiver program (Waiver) is designed to meet the individual support needs of each person served.

Individuals receiving Waiver reside in a community home with one, two, or three roommates.The goal is to teach living skills and create opportunities for individuals to fulfill their potential and reach their dreams.

Each individual has their own support team that works in partnership with family, medical supports, employment, day programs, schools, community resources, case managers and other natural supports. The support team works with each individual to live as independently as possible in the community.

Sunnyhill support staff is available 24 hours a day to assist with instruction on daily living skills, participation in meaningful activities, relationship formation and community access. Sunnyhill currently provides Independent Supported Living services in 39 locations, and counting.
