For those seeking a warm, caring home for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities and other special needs, UCP Seguin offers community-based options where they can live, work, and socialize with others. We take great pride in providing beautiful, safe homes throughout the Chicago metropolitan area.
These homes, called Community Integrated Living Arrangements (CILAs), offer a family-living environment for up to eight adults. All homes feature trained staff to provide individualized support and care to residents with disabilities:
Shift Homes provide around-the-clock care by specialized staff on a rotating basis. Adult Foster Parent homes offer a family-like atmosphere with individuals or families who receive specific training. Our Intermittent CILAs provide greater independence for people with disabilities who need periodic support. Intermittent CILAs also offer respite services throughout Chicagoland.
As with all services, our residential options fulfill UCP Seguin’s mission to enable people with disabilities to achieve their full potential, be more independent, and become integrated into their community.
- Each resident receives individualized program facilitation and case management
- Individuals learn daily living skills such as cooking, housekeeping, and budgeting in a supportive environment
- To encourage independence, residents share household responsibilities based on their capabilities
- Our staff receives ongoing professional training
- The Illinois Department of Human Services licenses all UCP Seguin CILA homes
To determine if your loved one qualifies for one of our residential programs, visit a Department of Human Services Pre-Admission Screening/Independent Service Coordination Agency (PAS/ISC) near you. (Search the DHS Office Locator). Next, join the state’s waiting list. After you are declared eligible for services, the PAS/ISC can refer you directly to UCP Seguin of Greater Chicago.
UCP Seguin offers incomparable services for seniors with intellectual/developmental disabilities who also face the challenges of aging and dementia. We have created a unique model of care that allows individuals with disabilities to age in place in a loving, tranquil, and supportive environment.
