Adult Residential

Melmark’s service divisions in New England and Pennsylvania have several attractive, community-based residences. Melmark Pennsylvania also offers campus-based residential options. In both settings, our comprehensive resources meet the unique residential and clinical needs of individuals who need significant-to-moderate support for their daily living and for managing challenging behaviors.


Our programs serve:

  • 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.
