Residential Services

Adult Services

Melmark’s Adult Services offers a full range of attractive, community based and on-campus residential options. Our comprehensive resources meet the unique residential and clinical needs of those entrusted to our care, including:

  • Medically fragile adults who may require 24-hour nursing care
  • Individuals who need significant-to-moderate support for their daily living needs
  • Adults who can live relatively independently in the community with staff assistance.

Whether living in a campus residence or a community-based setting, all of the adults served by Melmark have regular access to innovative health, social and recreational services designed to promote individual confidence, independence and community integration.
