Developmental Disabilities Residential

Claratel Behavioral Health offers two living options for adults with developmental disabilities—Community Residential Alternative and Community Living Services.

For Community Residential Alternative services, we offer shared living homes in neighborhoods across DeKalb County. These homes consist of three to four people residing together with a similar level of support needs. Services are 24/7 and consist of coaching and supporting people with activities of daily living such as personal hygiene, meal support, medical care and transportation, and community involvement.

For individuals who reside either in their family home or who live independently in their own home or apartment, we provide Community Living Services.
