Cedar Crest - Bloomington
  • Contact:

  • Michelle.Springer@thomasalleninc.com
  • Description:
  • Cedar Crest is a rambler style home in a quiet location in Bloomington. The home is located on a quiet road. There is a major shopping area located close by, a gas station within walking distance, and many stores, parks, restaurants in the nearby area. There are currently three men living in the home. The individuals living at the home have profound to mild intellectual disabilities, some mood disorders and autism. The individuals living at this home like participating in activities that include the following: being outside, going to movies, going out to eat, enjoying drive thru meals, watching planes at the airport, going to the Mall of America, going for walks, playing sports, attending fairs, or playing video games. Ideally, the best person for the home would be someone who likes to interact with others, enjoys an active home and doesn’t mind it being loud in the home at times. Due to the vulnerabilities of the other individuals living at the home, someone with physical aggression would not be a good fit. Sometimes, it can be loud in the home as some individuals meet their sensory needs. An individual may hit things near him to hear the noise. There is no physical aggression at the home. Some of the individuals are not able to talk, and some do. The individuals attend a day placement (pending some re-openings). The house is staffed during the day and usually double-staffed in the evening. The overnight staff are awake. A RN is available if appropriate and funded.
