Residential Support Services

Sunbeam Community & Developmental Services has a broad network of residential group homes and respite locations in community neighborhoods, each offering the comforts of home and the reassuring supports to meet the varying needs of our persons-served.   Both long term and respite (relief/emergency) supports are also available. A holistic, needs-based approach is used, in concert with families, to develop a “person-centred care plan” that describes the supports to be delivered, as well as preferences and goals of the person-served

About The People We Serve

We provide support for children, youth, middle-aged and older adults with varying degrees of developmental disabilities.

The people we serve have a wide variety of strengths and abilities, as well as needs –many have complex medical issues and depend on technology to assist them in their day-to-day lives. Some people require. Many require 24-hour nursing supports and total care, while others are medically stable. Some require supports and assistive devices for their mobility and seating, while others are fully independent and ambulatory.

Many of our clients are non-verbal, however are able to express themselves using various communication devices and methods. A primary focus for some may be sensory stimulation, leisure and therapeutics, while others enjoy full community participation.
