Household Model

A small group of residents living within a physically-defined environment that “feels like home” and that has a kitchen, a dining room, and a living room. Staff is consistently assigned so they can develop meaningful relationships with the residents, work in self-led teams, and perform a variety of tasks. The sense of being at home is expressed in recognizing and honoring the rhythm of each individual’s life. For example, there is a wide variety of food accessible to residents around the clock, including breakfast-to-order and on demand. All residents in the household have opportunities to participate in the daily life of the household in a manner and to the extent they choose.
