Adults with Disabilities

Shared Living

No two adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities are the same—which is why we get to know each of the individuals in our Shared Living Program, understand their strengths, interests, and needs, and find the best home environment for them. We match them with supportive host families who provide consistent, nurturing interaction and oversight in safe, caring home environment.

Our goal is to help individuals develop greater independence by mastering important self-care tasks such as using public transportation, shopping, managing finances and other critical activities of daily living. HopeWell empowers the individuals we serve to inform and guide their service plans and treatment goals, ensuring their best interests are always front and center. We provide our Shared Living host families with supportive supervision and trainings to help them address any challenges or difficult situations that may arise.

Staffed Community Homes

Learning basic life skills, becoming confident getting around, developing the ability to have successful relationships this is the kind of personal growth we see on a daily basis in our residential homes for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and what makes the work so rewarding.

HopeWell’s staffed apartments in metro Boston serve adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who need more support than what we provide in Shared Living. The intensity of support ranges depending on the needs of the individuals, but all apartments provide around the clock care from our dedicated staff who work to determine the unique potential of each adult we serve.

We help all of our clients develop the skills to live as independently as possible, including:

  • Preparing simple meals;
  • Having banking accounts and developing money management skills;
  • Learning how to maintain their own personal hygiene;
  • Building and sustaining relationships in their community;
  • Maintaining ongoing regular health care.
