Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services

Swan Garden supports, assists, and mentors individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in the enhancement of their abilities and interests. Services are aimed at partnering with individuals as they become self-sufficient and live everyday lives. Swan Garden is determined to help individuals find meaningful roles in their community so they may feel valued as community members. Individuals are always at the core of the planning and implementation of services.
Developmental disabilities encompass a broad range of conditions that result from cognitive and/or physical impairments. They are identified before the age of 22, and usually last throughout a person’s lifetime.  These disabilities include intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, language and learning disorders, fragile x syndrome (FXS), cerebral palsy, and spinal bifida. 

Residential Habilitation

Individualized services are provided in a person’s home or in the home of their natural family. Community inclusion, assistance with personal care, home safety, communication, and social skill development are a few of the focus areas of this service. Continuation of prescribed therapy recommendations for children or adults is also provided.


Community Integration

Community integration is designed to help persons to optimize their personal, social, and vocational competency to live successfully in the community.  We provide support to clients who are currently active in their communities or want to become active in their communities. 

An activity center, a day program, a clubhouse, a drop-in center, spiritual and community events,  are some examples of community integration services.


Respite Care

Respite care provides relief for the caregiver. It takes some of the burden and stress away, whether it’s for a few hours a day or a few days a week. 

Using respite services helps ward off the burnout that can leave caregivers depressed, stressed out and exhausted.  Caregivers often return from a break, even if it's just two hours to have lunch with a friend, feeling a renewed energy for caregiving.  This service may be provided in the individual’s home or in public community areas.
