Our Sewickley campus is the home of Verland’s Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) for Individuals with Intellectual Disability (IID).
This site headquarters not only our senior Administrative Departments, but also our Department of Clinical Services, our Sewickley ICF Adult Training Facility, and the ICF Department of Resident Services.
Resident Services oversees 10 homes, each housing nine to ten individuals. These houses are furnished and designed to offer a comfortable and pleasing domestic environment and to provide the best support for our individuals.
At our ICF, Resident Services provides care for up to 90 child and adult residents, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year; this requires a large, highly-trained team of dedicated professionals. Four Qualified Intellectual Disability Professionals (QIDPs), each holding a bachelor’s degree or higher in the human services field, and with over sixty years of combined experience, develop individualized plans for home-based programming and care for each resident. This programming includes not only the promotion of independence and learning skills, but also the development of community integration and physical and emotional supports.
At Resident Services, our leadership and staff are passionate, caring advocates for whatever help and services our individuals and their families need. We put our hearts into giving our individuals beautiful homes where individualized supports are provided and specific goals are implemented, as outlined in the individualized program plan (IPP). In our homes, services are focused on self-care needs, emotional supports, daily activities, recreational opportunities, safety awareness, social development, and promoting participation and independence.
If you are interested in joining our team of advocates, please contact us for more information.
Our Sewickley Facility
Five House Managers are responsible for overseeing the implementation of programming and for the guidance of almost 100 trained Direct Support Staff (DSPs). Working closely with our Nursing, Habilitation, and ATF teams, our QIDPs and House Managers focus on enriching the daily lives of our residents and supporting their needs through the integration of modern therapeutic and clinical models. Whenever possible, we also work closely with our residents’ families to foster community support and outreach, with the goal of ensuring that each individual leads a rich and fulfilling life. Through these models and tools, each resident is provided 24-hour holistic support and care.
