- Studio Apartments
- The Studio apartments are made up of six individual one bedroom apartments loacated
near the downtown area of Carbondale IL. Each apartment is completely wheelchair
accessible to accommodate individuals with mobility impairments. The focus of the
Studio Apartments is to provide an environment for participants to practice
semi-independent living and community re-entry activities. While a participant
resides in the "Studios", they continue to receive therapeutic intervention and
support from clinical and life skills staff to meet designated outcome goals.
As a means of identifying an individual's potential level of independence while
still participating in rehabilitation programming, short-term independent trials for
blocks of time may be done in lieu of full-time residency at the Studio Apartments.
This option allows an individual to practice utilization of emergency response techniques
that can be refined prior to CCS discharge. For training purposes a family member or
future care giver may reside in the Studio Apartment with the participant throughout their
stay or prior to return to home.
