McGuire Memorial community homes, situated throughout surrounding Western Pennsylvania communities, offer private residential living for individuals with mild to severe disabilities. Residents enjoy total care within one-floor-living private home environments, all with accessible (ADA standard) doors, bathrooms, and entrances, renovated to meet their comfort and functional needs.
With a maximum of four individuals per home, residents enjoy camaraderie in a familial setting. They experience independence within a safe and supportive living environment where highly trained in-house staff members attend to their personal care 24 hours a day. Nursing and medical staff, therapists, and behavioral specialists are on-call around the clock, if needed.
There are 22 community homes filled to capacity. McGuire’s "Giving the Gift of Hope" Capital Campaign has financially sponsored the opening of the last 9 community homes. These private, residential settings give the “gift of independence” to adults with disabilities who do not require 24-hour nursing care, but who do require daily personal care.
Each community home has its own van so that staff members can transport each resident to either The School at McGuire Memorial or to work or training at McGuire Memorial's Employment Option Center or Adult Training Facility. Each week staff members accompany residents to a variety of enjoyable activities such as bowling, movies, and dinner. Staff members also ensure that every resident can attend the weekly worship of their choice.
