Intermediate Care Facility (ICF)
Cerebral Palsy operates four Intermediate Care Facilities (ICFs,) located throughout Ulster County. Three of these ICFs provide care for adults and one serves children. Facilities include:
- Hillcrest Residence Ellenville – Opened in 1982 our Hillcrest residence is home to fourteen medically fragile men and woman. This spacious facility provides consumers ample space for recreation and relaxation including a fully furnished lower level that is accessible via an elevator. Consumers are offered views of mountains and beautifully landscaped grounds.
- Lasher Residence, Saugerties – Opened in 1981 our Lasher Residence is an eight person co-ed facility located on a quiet street just outside of the village of Saugerties. Lasher consumers and staff are well known for their high level of community involvement and support.
- Carroad Residence, New Paltz – In June of 1992 the Carroad residence was opened in New Paltz to address the growing need to provide a home for young adults who had “aged-out” of programs suitable for children. Initially named “Yankee Folly” the residence name was changed in 2012 to honor Pam Carroad who served as a staff member and executive director for 34 years.
- Oberkirch Children’s ICF Lake Katrine, New York – The Helen Oberkirch Children’s Residence for school-age children was opened in May 1989, providing the opportunity for 12 children with disabilities to live in a home-like environment and attend a nearby special education program and receive rehabilitative services necessary to meet each child’s needs. The residence is named in memory of Helen Oberkirch in recognition of her many years of dedicated services as a volunteer and Board member.
Each of these programs provides 24 hour quality care to persons who have severe physical, medical and cognitive disabilities. With a highly trained workforce that provides an intensive level of supervision, a home environment, physical assistance and training, residents feel warm and comfortable in their living spaces. Residents also have access to community based therapeutic recreation, medication administration and monitoring, as well as special preparation of meals and transportation to all medical and community appointments.
