Supervised Apartments

Our goal for the Willowglen Academy - New Jersey Supervised Apartments is to provide the least restrictive environment while promoting a safe and nurturing home setting where participants can work on both general skill development and specific areas of need. With person centered planning driving the process, the individual and their Interdisciplinary Team will establish specific goals and objectives to promote increased independence, which are detailed in their Individual Habilitation Plan or Essential Life Plan. This program will also provide the structure and support required by each individual served to to successfully transition into the home, establish a comfortable and enriching daily routine, and work toward increasingly independent functioning.

Residents will be given the opportunity to utilize community resources to satisfy many of their daily living and recreational needs. Regular shopping trips for food, banking, religious services and recreational activities will provide opportunities for individuals to practice community skills and to be exposed to expectations for appropriate social behaviors. Consumers will learn about the different ways one relates to shopkeepers, friends and family, staff will discuss and model community “codes of conduct” and individuals will practice and staff will reinforce these skills during frequent trips into the community. As these skill levels continue to increase, additional programs will be sought to fully meet each individual’s interest.

The selection of recreational activities will be driven by the interests of the individuals as determined through group meetings, interest surveys and individual requests. It is expected that choosing activities along with their fellow program participants will enhance each individual’s ability to express their desires in a constructive manner and to teach compromise with positive outcomes.

All individuals will have access to any specialized medical/therapeutic service that is determined necessary and appropriate. Whenever possible these services will be provided through community-based providers. The agency will assure that individuals receive any specialized services identified as needed by the assessments conducted through the IHP/ELP process. The program is prepared to provide the support needed to engage in services provided by, but not limited to, medical practitioners such as general practitioner, psychiatrist, neurologist, dentist, ophthalmologist, etc. Whenever possible all services are provided through the community at large as per the individual’s personal choice and needs. Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy services will be arranged for on an as-needed basis, as well as psychiatric and/or psychological services. The ability to provide support for other specialized services will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
