Homes and Living: Community Residences
Lifeworks is committed to providing beautiful homes in our local communities with high-quality professional supports in order to enhance the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Individuals who live in Lifeworks residences lead active, fulfilling lives as they learn to master the activities of daily living. All of our residences enjoy the right combination of independence, support and the feeling of community.
Whether residing in a home with others or living independently in the community, our well-trained staff provide experienced guidance and attentive, compassionate care. Each home is staffed according to the needs of the individuals who live there and customized to meet each person’s unique physical and emotional needs.
Our staff works diligently to help create a feeling of community integration as residents are encouraged to create lasting relationships with neighbors and friends. We visit local restaurants, stores, libraries, and other community sites, and often participate in special town events. Currently, Lifeworks provides community living in supports in Attleboro, Foxboro, Natick, Norwood, Plainville, Sharon, Walpole, Westwood and Wrentham.

“The home is the center of our neighborhood. Together we’ve had countless barbecues, block parties, football parties and fundraisers, through it all, the home has always been the driving force that unites us as a community. People always think our neighborhood is so generous and helpful to the brothers, but in reality we are the ones who have benefited from living next to the group home. Growing up amongst all different types of people, especially mentally and physically challenged individuals, has taught me not only the importance of acceptance and equality, but more importantly the value of each day and how some people, while more disadvantaged than me, continue to greet each day with a smile.”
