Life at Lamb
More than 200 residents call the Lamb Foundation home. Our 58 home units are fully furnished and decorated. Each home unit features a full kitchen, bathroom, and living room, along with single and double bedrooms. These homes are affordable, safe, clean, and well-managed by Lamb Foundation staff. The monthly residential program fee may include meals, utilities, housekeeping and laundry services, telephone, cable, and various support services.
Residents live in single apartments or among their peers in large homes located in North Wales and Lansdale boroughs in Montgomery County.
Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Needs
Residents have the opportunity and encouragement to participate in a full spectrum of age-appropriate activities to meet their needs. Physical needs are met with quality housing, meal preparation, and individual access to food through our Cornucopia Cupboard. Clothing and shopping wishes can be met at our Sweet Repeats Thrift Shop. The Lamb Foundation provides health care coordination and advocacy upon request.
Emotional needs are addressed through the building of peer relationships within each home, the forging of trust with Lamb Foundation staff, itinerant counseling services, legal support when needed, and referrals to appropriate mental health care agencies.
The Lamb Foundation is very sensitive to the spiritual needs of its residents. We encourage residents to seek a variety of spiritual resources, including but not limited to faith-based counseling, comfort in times of loss, Bible studies, chaplain services, joining in local community outreach programs (especially those designed for the disabled), and the freedom to worship where they choose.
Skilled and Caring Staff
Lamb Foundation staff members have backgrounds in domestic care, early education, missionary or ministerial work, nursing, and residential care. They are selected for their high energy levels, interpersonal skills, and overall friendly, helpful attitudes.
Our staff members bring to each home the same skills and standards that they apply to their own homes. Our residents become their second family. Many of our staff members and residents are similar in age, background, and education, making it easy to build trust, friendships, and mutual respect. Staff members know to expect the unexpected, and respond to situations as they would with their own families in their own homes.
