How Our Group Homes Support Your Needs

We create homes for our clients that make them feel safe and among a community of friends & family.

Peer Matching

Each home has a maximum of 3 residents. New clients are introduced based on compatibility with their housemates. The process of matching peers with similar needs and interests also allows individuals to enjoy lower living expenses and the benefits of shared assistive staffing. We have been proud to see some beautiful friendships take form in many of our homes.

Wellness Support Plans

Every individual is unique and no two individuals have exactly the same needs. That’s why we work with you during our initial behavioural consultation to create a truly personalized Wellness Support Plan, including all the key information about our clients including behaviour patterns, stressors, and routine details. The plan helps us not only meet their needs, but to help them make progress and get the very most out of their lives.

Being a caregiver is emotionally and physically demanding. Our Wellness Plans allow families, caregivers, and teachers to receive advice and support. By creating flexible and proactive strategies, our team takes the pressure off so that everyone under our care can live a full, independent life.

Behavioural Consultation

Providing effective care for adults and children with complex developmental disabilities means understanding their unique needs. Behavioural consultations help us to understand those needs, develop personalized wellness plans, and build the right routines and activities for each individual.

Behavioural consultations are conducted by a qualified, expert member of Entrust’s support team in person in our Edmonton office or via video call, with the supervision of a registered psychologist. Your behaviour specialist will spend time with the client and key people in their life, such as caregivers, parents, or teachers, to make sure they always have the best support.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does The Government Pay For Group Homes?

The funding for group home costs in Alberta varies based on the individual’s needs, the level of care required, and the specific programs or services utilized. The government may cover a significant portion of the costs, but the exact amount can differ widely among individuals. Ensure you consult with your social worker or government representative to understand the funding available for specific situations.

Who Qualifies For Group Homes?

Qualification for group home care often depends on factors such as age, disability, level of required support, and individual care needs. Individuals with developmental disabilities, mental health conditions, or other special needs may be eligible. An assessment by healthcare professionals and caseworkers typically determines eligibility.

Are Group Homes Effective?

Group homes can be highly effective for many individuals, providing a supportive and structured environment that fosters personal growth and independence. Effectiveness often depends on the match between the individual’s needs and the home’s services, staff expertise, and overall care environment.

Are Group Homes Permanent?

Group homes can be either temporary or permanent solutions, depending on the individual’s needs and circumstances. Some residents may stay in group homes long-term, while others may transition to more independent living arrangements or other specialized care settings.

Are Group Home Safe?

Safety in group homes is a paramount concern, and homes are typically regulated and monitored by government agencies. Staff are usually trained in proper care and safety protocols, and many homes have systems in place to ensure the well-being of residents. However, as with any living situation, the quality and safety can vary among different homes.

What Are The Levels Of Group Homes?

Group homes often have different levels or tiers based on the intensity and type of care provided. These levels may range from minimal supervision and support for more independent individuals to intensive 24-hour care for those with significant needs. The levels are usually determined by factors such as staffing ratios, specialized services, and the individual’s medical, behavioral, or developmental requirements. Check with your caseworker and disability support worker about what’s covered under your applicable program contract.
