Making A Life Transition: On Campus and Community Living
Living situations are adapted to each individual persons with greater needs, such as wheelchair assistance, communication devices or other adaptive equipment will be comfortable in a home best suited for their needs.
New Hope’s spacious campus offers residents a truly at-home feel with walking paths, flowers and garden areas and visits from area wildlife. The open campus area offers room for games and sports. Campus life is always bustling, particularly during the holidays when you see the homes decorated or as the seasons change.
For those living on campus, each morning they’re able to wake up in their own room, enjoying privacy, a comfortable living space and their own personal decorations and treasures. Each home, both on campus and in the community, is kept clean, well decorated and pleasant to come home to when the day is done.
On campus homes are certified Intermediate Care Facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities and others.
Community homes and apartments are maintained and cared for by New Hope in Carroll and Glidden. These homes are staffed 24-hours a day and offer individuals a supported community living opportunity.
Community homes offer an opportunity for independence, with round-the-clock support. Services include assistance with meal preparation, medication administration support, financial support and transportation. Additionally, our services also assist with vocational and employment support.
In February 2019, New Hope’s ICF services received a zero-deficiency result on it’s annual survey by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals (DIA). There are 140 Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) in Iowa. Generally, only about a fourth are found to be deficiency-free.
