Residential Services for Adults
The Adult Residential Services Program currently provides residential support for adults 21 or older in 18 group homes located in Annapolis, Easton, Trappe, Denton, Henderson, and Ridgely. All homes are licensed by Maryland Office of Health Care Quality; the Maryland Developmental Disability Administration (DDA) provides residential funding. Our focus in the residential program is to assist the individuals we serve in becoming productive and active members of their communities. Residential supports include:
Daily Living: Staff engage and motivate individuals to learn and complete to the best of their ability, personal hygiene, clothing care, meal preparation, money management, housekeeping, social skills, behavior management, and recreational activities.
Individuals are encouraged to engage fully in community based resources and activities: trips to the bank, post office, parks, grocery shopping, personal shopping, church or temple, library, the YMCA and access to public transportation as available.
When public transportation is not available, residential staff provide rides to all community activities and events.
Recreation/Leisure Activities: People work hard and play hard! The adults we support are given the opportunity to plan and participate in many activities of choice including: dining out, movies, sporting events, local festivals, cultural events, plays & concerts, arts & craft shows, amusement parks, trips to Ocean City, and many more.
Benedictine sponsored recreation and leisure activities include themed dances & parties, sports tournaments including bowling, bocce, soccer and basketball, arts & crafts, photography and scrap-booking.
To the extent it is possible, Benedictine supports people to live together with other members of the household promoting compatibility and encouraging the development of meaningful friendships. Each person has their own bedroom and are encouraged to personalize living space, both shared and private, by decorating in a style that expresses their individuality.
