Residential care

You’re home.


You belong here.

Bairn Croft’s residential homes are supported living spaces for people with complex special needs. By understanding each of our residents, we are able to individualize each program based on age group, functioning level, and behavioural challenges. With round the clock access to clinical support and care, we develop a long-term strategy to help develop skills, address problem behaviours, and ultimately help our clients live happier and more fulfilling lives.

Residential Programs

Our residential programs are for people who need 24-hour support. We foster environments that focus on skill development, social inclusion, and community involvement for our clients. We operate two youth homes and many adult homes, meaning we can ensure people are always placed among their peer group.

High Support Programs

Our high support programs are for people who need more intensive care and services. By maintaining a high staff to client ratio, we ensure that every client receives constant hands-on supervision. These programs serve those who engage in potentially dangerous behaviours towards themselves or others. The emphasis is on providing mental health care within a safe and stable environment.

Supported Independent Living

Our supported independent living programs are for adults with mild intellectual deficits or other disorders who are ready to take control of their own life. We provide guidance and support in many areas like finances and health, while still giving them freedom and agency over their lives. We help develop useful skills, healthy lifestyles, and explore other areas of potential interest.

Respite Services

Our overnight respite services are designed to give families and caregivers support and relief. Everybody needs a break sometimes. Operated within our residential care homes, our respite schedules are flexible so we can adapt to the needs of each individual client and situation.

Educational Program

Our educational program provides our clients with the support and resources they need to attend and participate in school or other similar programs. We work closely with schools and boards all across the city to ensure the success of all of our residents. If attending school is not an option for any reason, we will assess the individual’s needs and abilities to determine the best possible alternative.
