Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disablities (ICF/IID Group Homes), are programs that serve up to six individuals all living in one home. In Washington state, these group homes are considered Boarding Homes under DSHS. The levels of support differ based on the individuals, but all group homes are located throughout King County, more specifically in North Seattle, Woodinville and Duvall.
These group homes have had continual success for the past forty years. The individuals living in these five group home have made incredible progress and some have moved on to the Supported Living Program and others are continuously working toward more independent lives.
Supported Living (SL) is a program where residents rent a home in the community with Camelot staff support. The degree of support depends on the needs of the individual residents. At the present time all of Camelot’s Supported Living Homes have 24 hour staff support. Each home has 1–4 residents living there.
Currently, there are nine Supported Living sites located in Bothell, Kirkland, Duvall, Lake City, Shoreline, Woodinville, Lynnwood, and Bellevue. Fifteen of the twenty-one residents in the SL Program have Prader-Willi Syndrome.
The program has been extremely successful. The clients are reportedly very happy with their current living situations. They are all involved in various community activities, take pride in their homes and enjoy the independence they feel in the Supported Living Program.
