Connections has seven group homes which provide residences for 58 individuals with serious mental illness and co-occurring debilitating medical conditions so that they can live relatively independently.

Our management and staff members are guided by our mission “to enhance the quality of life, no matter what life looks like.”

Each of the group homes has five to 10 residents and is staffed around the clock. We have homes in all three Delaware counties.

Employees work as a team to plan and prepare each day’s activities and assist residents with medical needs and personal care such as showering, dressing, housekeeping and daily chores.

Activities include daily peer groups, cognitive games, gardening and an array of other activities, social and educational outings, and holiday events.

Nurses assist and educate resident with their daily medication and answer any medical questions that arise. A doctor is on call 24 hours a day, and a physician visits each site weekly.

Clinicians work at each home during the day to provide therapy to residents who need it.  Our case management team ensures that each  resident maintains active health insurance and their financial needs are met.

The mental health group homes are licensed by the Delaware Division of Long-term Residents Protection and must meet the standards set for the physical plant and staffing.
