Description of Service
Horizon House's supports for persons with mental retardation are designed to increase their ability to manage their lives, and to facilitate active involvement and integration into the community. Individuals with mental retardation are supported in managing their lives and being actively involved in the community.
Horizon House seeks to help each person with mental retardation find a living arrangement that is most conducive for personal growth and enrichment. Residential services are individualized and flexible so supports can increase or diminish, as preferences and needs change. Options include: community homes, small group residences with round the clock, in-home assistance; semi-independent or supported living arrangements for individuals who need less than 24-hour per day in-home assistance and who live in their own homes or apartments; and family living, for those desiring a more family-oriented living situation.
- Life-Long Supports:
Horizon House also offers community integrated employment, financial planning and management services, and retirement planning. The Active Retirement Program provides specialized supports to people with mental retardation living in nursing homes. In Montgomery County, Horizon House provides supports to individuals with both mental retardation and mental health needs.
