Citizen Care provides community-based residential services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. A wide range of community living settings are supervised by direct support staff. Employees are responsible for:
- assisting people in performing activities of daily living
- assuring the safety and welfare of the people supported
- helping people to realize their hopes and dreams.
Residential services and supports help people achieve their dreams, be it an awesome vacation, visiting a relative who lives far away or purchasing a big screen TV. Citizen Care helps people with disabilities develop life skills that lead to independence including: cooking, shopping, hygiene, laundry, safety, money/budgeting, cleaning and health. Services are augmented using community resources such as religious activities, recreation, health, public transportation and adult education classes. Our agency emphasizes a conventional lifestyle for each individual while providing opportunities for growth and learning.
Residents are employed, participate in volunteer opportunities, attend training programs, or enjoy retirement activities at a senior center. Services vary due to the skills, desires and interests of each person. Our commitment to the principles of choice and self-determination has afforded people numerous opportunities to manage their own lives and to live with dignity as members of the community.
Residential programs are licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.
