Residential Services provides 24-hour care with a treatment and/or training program in a setting other than a hospital or training center to individuals with intellectual disabilities. This 24-hour residential care includes enhancing supervised living skills, as well as other supportive residential services. These services range from highly Intensive Residential Intermediate Care Facilities for Mentally Retarded (ICF/MR) to less Intensive Residential Services (waiver homes) including Group Homes. Supportive Residential Services are also included and normally do not involve overnight care but may be provided on an hourly basis. An essential component is assistance in developing or enhancing the following skills:
- hygiene and self care
- task learning
- environmental and behavioral skill
- medication management
Western Tidewater Community Services Board currently operates seven residential facilities (six located in the City of Suffolk and one located in the county of Isle of Wight).
