WLRC is licensed as an Intermediate Care Facility/for people with disabilities. Each person served has an individual plan for training, work, healthcare, and recreation. Residences are home for three to nine individuals each. They provide a comfortable, family-like setting in an accessible neighborhood. Independence is promoted in life skills, community access, social interaction, and leisure activities.
WLRC strives to provide the least restrictive, most appropriate, most integrated environment possible with informed choice. An important component of the Active Treatment required by ICF/ID is providing training opportunities necessary for the highest level of independence possible. Job exploration, paid work, social and communication skills, and behavior supports are part of the opportunities based on each individual’s needs, interests and abilities.
