With advances in medical treatment, many critical care young adults, 18 and older, are living longer and moving into adulthood with limited relational options. Lacking is an alternative home care environment that provides for social interaction, recreational opportunities, maturation and relationship development within their own age group, while providing for their extensive life support needs. Many live lonely, isolated lives and are frequently placed with a senior population if their families can no longer care for them. Our solution is a unique community living strategy that encourages each person to grow into their own identities while experiencing the best of life possible as they transition from childhood to adult, with others who value and celebrate life.
