Residential services from the Metzenbaum Center include our Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) and community homes for individuals looking for more independent living.
The four houses located on our campus were renovated in 2014 to better serve our individuals. These units now have single-occupancy rooms with in-suite bathrooms and roll-in showers, as well as larger, more open social areas. One house features a centralized commercial kitchen where meals for all houses are prepared. The residences can accommodate up to 25 individuals who require greater assistance with daily care. We provide quality care as well as intensive medical support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in order to meet the specialized needs of individuals with developmental disabilities. Programs are implemented to develop skills that enable individuals to function with as much self-determination and independence as possible.
The Metzenbaum Center works closely with Maple Leaf Community Residences, Inc. (MLCRI). This organization was created to locate, purchase and maintain small community houses for individuals with developmental disabilities on Supported Living and IO Waivers. Currently, MLCRI maintains 18 homes throughout Geauga County. The houses are purchased with funds from the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (ODoDD) and the Geauga County Board of Developmental Disabilities (GCBDD). GCBDD currently contracts with MLCRI to act as landlord to the individuals living in the homes. More information about MLCRI is available on its website at www.mlcr.org.
