Riverbrook Residence is dedicated to creating a uniquely nurturing community for women with developmental disabilities. Recognized as "An Agency of Best Practices," Riverbrook women are given innovative opportunities for full and meaningful participation in all aspects of life.
The oldest all-women residence in the Northeast, Riverbrook is a model of care for women with Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy, vision and hearing impairments and other developmental challenges. In a gracious historic mansion, nestled amidst the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts, Riverbrook is a group home for developmentally disabled women that provides the highest level of personal attention, 24 hours a day.
The health of our residents is a priority. Our Health Services co-ordinator provides comprehensive care and accompanies the women to all medical appointments. Minor medical needs are treated and referrals are made as necessary. Riverbrook Residence is a state-of-the-art facility in terms of the physical safety it offers women with developmental disabilities. At least four staff members, including one medically-trained staff person are on duty at all times to guarantee optimum 24-hour care. Located in beautiful, pastoral setting with fresh Berkshire Mountain air, Riverbrook prides itself on offering its residents the safest and most healthy environment possible. Riverbrook residents enjoy nutritious home-cooked meals, often prepared with organic ingredients from our own garden and local producers.
