New Housing Options Explored at Latham
Insuring that we have the right kind of homes in the right kind of places is an ongoing focus for the Board and Staff of Latham Centers, Inc. We have been working together with community partners to develop a continuum of care for the adults we support. We have expanded our options from the traditional group home to apartments and shared living and we have been working with our local housing authority to develop a supported apartment complex that would enable more individuals with PWS who have the ability to live more independently the option of having their own apartment. This complex would still have food security and wrap around staffing. We are also thinking about our aging population and developing housing that is more consistent with the needs of an older population. Making it possible to be there for a life-time of support and care in the least restrictive environment is a challenge but a challenge that we embrace.
