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.
Maria has multiple disabilities and requires 24-hour care. But since she’s been at Angel View, she’s continued to grow in her abilities and interpersonal skills. A whole team of professionals helps her advance toward personal goals written just for her. Everything she learns helps her reach her maximum level of independence.
Besides learning life skills, she gets to go on dozens of outings. Thanks to our caring staff and specially equipped buses, she’s an active participant in our community.
We focus on what she has accomplished – not her limitations. She has such a happy smile and a vibrant personality. All who know her are touched by her radiance and her energy.
