HELPING YOU TO LIVE IN THE COMMUNITY WITH DIGNITY AND INDEPENDENCE
We help people achieve greater independence and reach their life goals. We will work with you and your family to determine your unique needs and help you to navigate through the services and wide range of supports that you will need in order to achieve them.
Our highest priority is providing programs and services that promote personal growth, self-respect and dignity and which value all individuals with developmental disabilities as contributing members of their communities.
WellLife Network provides a variety of options so that you, your guardian and family can determine which programs and services best suit your needs, assist you in meeting personal goals, and allow you to live as independently as possible in the community of your choice. Our options offer the ability to:
• Live at home with your family
• Reside with others in a home of your choice
• Develop social, personal, life and job skills
As an integral part of our programs, WellLife Network welcomes and encourages the involvement of families and caregives—through information sharing, goal setting and ongoing communication.
Our services include:
The WellLife Network’s group homes and supported apartments, throughout New York City and Long Island, are home to more than 280 adults with developmental and other disabilities. We serve people with varying levels of independence, including those who are medically fragile, aging and/or use wheelchairs. Our knowledgeable, friendly staff supports our residents in leading a lifestyle of dignity and maximum independence in a secure, friendly and nurturing environment.
Day Habilitation programs are offered to individuals who live in residential settings, as well as by themselves or with family. These programs include purposeful and meaningful activities and are designed to foster the acquisition of skills, appropriate behavior, greater independence and personal choice.
Advocacy & Family Supports
WellLife Network provides advocacy and support to individuals and their families through our Family Support and Entitlements and Eligibility Services. Individuals and their families may need help in discovering certain resources that allows the individuals we serve the opportunity to fulfill their life goals. With assistance from our Family Support and Services Team, each person’s particular needs, individual strengths and aspirations all help to determine exactly what support services are needed.
WellLife Network programs are licensed by the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD).
