IDD Residential Services

What are IDD Residential Services?
The Cumberland/Perry IDD Program offers three types of residential services:

Life Sharing
People live in host family homes and are encouraged to become contributing members of the family unit. Family living arrangements are chosen by people and families in conjunction with host families and in accordance with the person's needs. Licensed Family Living Homes are limited to homes in which one or two individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are not family members or relatives of family members are living.

Community Homes for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities
A licensed community home provides services to four or fewer people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Services are provided to assist individuals in acquiring, retaining, and improving self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills.

Independent Living
People live in their own apartment or homes in the community with varying amounts of staff support to assist with some activities of daily living. Assistance is provided with grocery shopping, budgeting, scheduling, attending medical appointments, or any other activities as required.

Who is eligible?
Residential services are available to any consumer currently registered in the County IDD system, depending on availability of funds.
