Program Description: PleasantView Group Home is a multi-bed residence in Russell County for adult males and females with moderate to mild mental retardation. Staff provide 24-hour supervision. Residents of PleasantView Group Home are generally more independent in their functioning than residents of Intermediate Care Facilities, and require assistance rather than training for all areas of independent living. Emphasis is placed on community integration. Residents and family take part in service planning. Payment for residential services is made by the resident and is usually a percentage of the SSI or Social Security benefit.
