Waiver Group Homes
At Florida MENTOR, we believe that a home is more than a house; it’s where we grow and develop lasting relationships with the people we call family. In our Waiver Group Homes, we help adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities—as well as those with medically complex challenges—live as independently as possible in communities of their choice.
Each home is unique, offering a range of amenities including:
Personalized Service and Support
In this residential program, we provide a variety of support and service options designed around the needs and interests of the individuals in each home—ranging from 24/7 in-home support or hourly assistance with planned activities.
Because of our flexible, person-centered approach, we provide all individuals in our Waiver Group Homes with a level of care designed to help them thrive and feel at home. Our support services may include assistance with:
Some of our group homes are specifically designed for individuals with complex medical issues. These group homes feature on-staff registered nurses and licensed practical nurses, as well as physical therapists who visit to provide specialized services on a regular basis. They are wheelchair accessible and equipped with shower beds and positioning tables for those who require assistance.
Individualized Service Planning
When someone is ready to move into one of our homes, we take the time to get to know them and their interests and what makes them unique. Our homes are staffed with Direct Support Professionals and other human services staff who develop Individualized Service Plans (ISPs) to help each individual reach new milestones.
Some of our group homes also serve teenagers and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Using our individualized approach, we get to know each young person and strive to match them with peers who have similar interests.
