Residential Programs Elwyn California provides care for people with
Intellectual Disabilities and skilled nursing needs via a
sophisticated, state of the art, alternative model of care. People
live in single family homes, with individual bedrooms and all the
typical "home-like" amenities, as opposed to having to live in
larger congregate hospital-like settings. Likewise, our employees
enjoy a smaller, more personal and home-like working environment,
as well as the opportunity to provide a very high level of quality
care based upon the smaller number of residents (typically 4-5 per
home) and the high staff to resident ratio. #CA #CB #MON #ZR Equal
