Who We Serve
The individuals and families supported by Mainstream Living have a variety of needs, all of which are met within the communities where they live. Because each person’s needs and abilities are different, and can change over time, we provide a full range of community-based residential and non-residential supports.
Adults with Disabilities
Members with intellectual disabilities are offered programs that range from highly supervised residential programs to hourly supports and more independent supported living. In addition to intellectual disabilities, members may also have physical disabilities, autism, cerebral palsy, attention deficit disorders, seizure disorders, sight or hearing loss, or a combination of disabilities.
Adults with Brain Injuries
People who have sustained a brain injury can choose services similar to those provided to individuals with intellectual disabilities. Our goal is to assist our members in living a full life, as independently as possible.
Adults with Psychiatric Disabilities
In Polk County, Mainstream Living provides services to adults with a diagnosed mental illness. We provide an array of supports to adults with serious or persistent mental disabilities such as, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and substance abuse.
Young Adults with Mental Disabilities
Mental disability services are provided to persons aged 18 to 25 in Polk County. These services are designed to assist young people in managing their illness and living as independently as possible.
Medically Fragile Adults
An individual who who has a serious ongoing illness or a chronic physical condition that has lasted or is anticipated to last for more than 12 months or has required more than one month's hospitalization is considered medically fragile. These members may require daily ongoing medical treatments and monitoring by appropriately trained personnel. Moreover, they may require the routine use of assistive technology to compensate for the loss of a body function needed to participate in activities of daily living.
