Glenwood opened its first adult residential home in 1994 and over the years has expanded to meet the growing community needs. Currently, we’re providing 24-hour residential care in the Birmingham area in more than twenty-homes for adults with autism or intellectual disabilities. Residents learn independent living skills at all levels of care.
Glenwood homes provide services to adults 19 and older. Each home provides private bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, communal living space, and space for private visits with family and friends. Each resident will have housemates, who may become lifelong friends.
Residents at Glenwood are offered opportunities to learn social, communications, and vocational skills through a variety of daytime programs. Transportation is available to experience Birmingham with field trips to area attractions. Vocational training and supported employment are also encouraged through the Journey Academy. Many adults attend a day program at Glenwood’s Sullivan Center. There is also an active program that incorporates art and music. Staff will work with you and your loved one to choose the classes, and activities that will help individuals live life to their fullest potential.
Glenwood offers full-time residential care for eligible individuals who are 19 and older whose primary diagnosis is autism and an intellectual disability. They must be able to function in a group setting with an appropriate staff ratio.
