Our Service Models:
GoodLife’s residential services offer a variety of living arrangements developed around the level of need of the individual.
The Neighborhood Network offers semi-independent adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities a safe option to live independently and on their own terms with support when they need it. Residents most often live in an apartment with a roommate.Learn More
Family Teaching Model
The Family Teaching model uses a variety of staffing strategies to meet the greater support needs of the people who live in the homes. Family Teaching Model homes are primarily duplexes where the individual with disabilities lives in one side and staff lives in the other.
Shared Living Model
Our Shared Living (also known as Professional Family Teaching Model) is a program where an individual, couple, or family provides services in their home for a person with disabilities.Learn More
Benefits to our Residential Services
Each person who chooses to live in a GoodLife home benefits from a Quality of Life Plan and an individualized schedule of preferred daily activities. GoodLife professionals, including nurses, behavior specialists, therapists, and other clinicians, provide support as needed. We’ve designed our services to create safe, comfortable, and long-term home environments that naturally support community involvement, consistent individualized care, and opportunities for learning new skills.
Our partnership with the University of Kansas helps us monitor our progress through our quality assurance program and guides us as we implement changes based on the most current research to create meaningful services for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD).
