Residential Care at The Home for Little Wanderers - The Home for Little Wanderers
We serve clients 25 years and older with diagnoses such as schizophrenia; schizo-affective, bipolar, or anxiety disorders; and major depression. In addition, we serve many other adults with varied psycho-social profiles who need a safe therapeutic transition to greater health and independence. EIKOS Community Services has been developing as a psychiatric and social residential rehabilitation program since , and has been licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health as a psychiatric community residence with staffed apartments since l Over that period of time, we have evolved and changed, always expanding our vision. Our core philosophy is that everyone needs a place to feel safe and secure in a "true home". EIKOS has become a very special community where individuals with mental illness or other special psychological and social needs can find that home and feel the security to start over. At EIKOS, residents develop new friendships and experience the freedom to make fresh choices and decisions.
The Wellmet Project is a unique program that operates group homes for people with mental illness. We are a charity whose purpose is to not only meet the basic needs of each individual, but to encourage growth, independence and self sufficiency. Much of the operation of the homes is determined by the residents in a weekly house meeting, and our use of live in staff provide a cost-effective means to offer support services. The homes are cooperative households, with staff and residents alike performing the various tasks that are necessary for any home to operate properly. All of our direct care staff live at the residences, and by virtue of doing so, they help destigmatize mental illness in addition to serving as role models and a source of support and encouragement.
What is life like in a group home? Lively debates over what to have for dinner. Shared laughter during an evening activity. Trips to the museums, parks and concerts.
