With a true focus on helping each individual gain independence, residents enjoy their own furnished one-bedroom apartment with access to family style amenities such as a kitchen, lounge, game room, patio and outdoor activities. The living environment that Treasure House provides supports residents as they develop, grow and thrive.
The initial inquiry can be completed over the phone or in person with a Treasure House employee. This step in the process allows our team to assess whether an individual meets the minimum requirements for admission. If an individual does meet the minimum requirements, he or she will be given the opportunity to proceed to the next step of the process.
The tour should be scheduled as close to the initial inquiry as possible. It is recommended that the prospective resident attend the tour to allow for a brief assessment on compatability by a Treasure House employee. If unable to attend, a second tour should be scheduled with the family and the prospective resident.
If the prospective resident appears to be a good fit, they will be invited to join the Treasure House residents and team for lunch or dinner. Again, the meal invitation should occur as close to the initial tour as possible. During the meal, team members will observe and notice peer to peer interactions as well as resident to team interactions.
Following the shared meal, the family, guardian and invididual will receive instructions for completing the application through our website or paper copy. All supplementary documentation must be provided prior to moving onto the next step.
The prospective resident’s application and supporting documents will be reviewed by the Life Coaches, Operations Director and other members of the team. This meeting should be held no more than one week after submission of all application documents.
Within two week of application review, a Life Coach will develop the accommodation plan and review all other critical areas of the resident services model.
The prospective resident stays at Treasure House for one to four weeks to experience the environment and participate in activities before making a final decision.
Did the trial stay go well? What were areas of success, challenge and opportunity? A phone call to guardians will discuss if Treasure House is an appropriate environment for the individual. Move-in date is discussed.
The Admissions agreement and accommodation plan will be signed, deposit and first month’s payment are due, and the apartment move-in inspection will be completed during the meeting.
The resident and his or her family will move the resident’s belongings in!
