Home > Residential > Cottages


Anne Carlsen in Jamestown has three Cottages. Each cottage has eight beds primarily serving behaviorally complex clients. The age range of the clients served at the cottages vary greatly, but typically range from 12 years old to 21 years old. The cottages were originally developed to serve as a transition step from early childhood to adult services. Our medical director, two certified family nurse practitioners and 24-hour nursing staff and CNA’s provide medical care to all of our residential clients on the Jamestown campus. Even our dietary staff are dedicated to the nutritional health of our clients by assuring the receive a well-balanced diet with the correct caloric intake. We focus on continued skill development in the areas of communication, socialization, recreation, activities of daily living, as well as health, wellness, and behavior. Although the goal is always independence, we realize that isn’t always possible. Therefore, we strive to allow each individual to be as independent as possible so that they can maximize their potential prior to moving on to adult services.

There is a close relationship between residential and educational services. Our Direct Support Professional staff are with the clients before school, go with them to school, and come back to the residential settings after school. This allows for consistent program implementation and communication between teachers and the evening/weekend residential staff.
