Cedar Lake offers a continuum of care, in that, people can move between various residential settings based on their growing needs.
Cedar Lake Residences, a subsidary of Cedar Lake, Inc., is a not-for-profit corporation which provides community-based residential options and supports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our housing options include a licensed group home and several staffed residences providing 24-hour support, an 8-hour staffed apartment building, patio homes with 8-hour staff support, independent living apartments with intermittent support, in-home and case management supports.
Cedar Lake Lodge and Cedar Lake Park Place are our two intermediate care facilities which offer intensive support for those who are medically fragile.
Learn about each of these residential options below.
Semi-Independent Group Home Setting
Typically for people with mild or moderate disabilities, this option is a semi-independent, twenty-four (24) hour-a-day staffed home for six people. These six people work in the community 20 or more hours per week. Those who live in the group home receive training and support in such areas as daily living skills, transportation, leisure and recreational activities, as well as benefits coordination.
Intermittent Support Apartments
Supported Independent Living Apartments in LaGrange and Louisville, are owned by Cedar Lake Residences. (Most with HUD funding)
This program provides supported independent living options for people who need less intensive supports and who desire to live independently in the community. Cedar Lake staff facilitators visit their home a minimum of twice per week to work on areas of need specified in their plan of care. Those we support are encouraged to participate in community employment, day program or community. Typically those living in apartment settings receive supports in areas such as: nutrition planning, grocery shopping, financial management, developing social skills, homemaking and safety skills as well as benefits coordination.
8-hour Staffed Patio Homes
This option consists of two three bedroom patio homes which are staffed 8 hours a day. It is designed to provide a level of support between the group home and independent living. The six people living in Jefferson Manor are encouraged to participate in the community at least part time during the week.
24-hour Staffed 3-person Homes
8-hour Staffed Apartments
Our community apartment complex, Washburn, is home to 8 people. This setting provides 8-hour care. This supported living model allows the people living in the home to experience as much independence as possible while having intermittent support throughout the week day.
