At Parkway House we provide services to four adults who have a mental illness as they learn new skills to allow them to return to independent community living. The program offers the necessary array of individualized services to these clients. We provide 24-hour staffing seven days a week. There are two staff on days and evenings and one staff awake overnight.

Who we serve

Parkway Place serves adults (18+) who are identified by Anoka County Mental Health as a candidate for Adult Foster Care. All potential residents must be CADI/TBI waiver eligible.

The goals we set

The goal of this home is to help individuals achieve goals and uncover their inner strengths in order to move towards as much independence as possible.

Services we provide

The staff will assist each individual according to the identified goals they want to accomplish. A treatment plan is developed so the client can see what they hope to accomplish. The staff will assist the clients to increase or develop their independent living skills so they can move to a less restrictive living place in the community such as an apartment or back to their own home. The skills may include money management, cooking skills, cleaning, social and recreational activities both in the house and out in the community as well as problem solving how to get along with the other people in shared housing. Clients will also receive additional education on their medications from the RN who is part of the staff for the program. There is structure in their days and planned activities throughout the week. Staff works both individually with clients each day and there are group meetings throughout the week. Staff will also accompany clients to medical appointments for any health related needs.
