24-Hour Residential Care
Eighteen of Angel View's six-bed homes are classified as Intermediate Care Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled (ICF/DD homes) and provide 24-hour residential care to children and adults with developmental disabilities. The 19th is a Congregate Living Health Facility for ventilator-dependent clients with muscular dystrophy.
All of our residences were built with our clients in mind. We designed the floorplans to optimize client comfort, mobility and safety. Approximately 70% of our clients have some form of paralysis, many use mobility devices. Each home features extra-wide doorways, low counter-tops and sinks, and roll-in showers to facilitate wheelchairs. Walls and doorways tend to take a beating from constant wheelchair use. So all homes feature extra-thick walls, complete with heavy-duty reinforcement.
We're also energy conscious. Our houses meet or exceed energy efficiency requirements and are planted with low water usage or drought tolerant landscape. And every home is equipped with a fully operating back-up generator in case of emergency.
Made Possible by Our Supporters
Our homes were made possible by the generosity of our supporters. All homes were designed, constructed, and furnished with donated funds and grants. All meet affordable housing requirements. For information on supporting our ongoing efforts to keep our homes maintained and comfortably furnished, please contact us.
Marlina, 39, with Down syndrome, knows what a difference a year makes. Just 18 months after moving into an Angel View home, she'd transformed in every way. Most significantly, through the help of our medical staff, dietitians, and caring house staff, she’s shed 90 pounds by eating more healthfully. She couldn’t wait to show off her new figure as a model in the 2016 annual Angel View fashion show.
Besides her weight loss, she’s more settled emotionally. Instead of tears, her smile lights up the room. Her ability to focus has dramatically improved, as has her ability to transition smoothly when staffers change shifts at her house. Marlina, our princess, loves frilly things, art and the visiting therapy dogs.
