  • Supported living – for individuals who need less than 12 hours daily supervision
  • Supervised apartments – for individuals who need 12-23 hours daily supervision
  • Staffed apartments – for individuals who need 24-hour supervision
  • Neighborhood (group) homes – for up to 5 individuals who need 24 hour supervision in a single-family home setting.
  • Shared living (foster care) – residential placement with a family

The State of Delaware also provides residential placement at facilities such as Stockley Center in Georgetown for people who need full time care that includes skilled nursing.

Adult foster care is also available for persons with physical disabilities. See the Delaware Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities for information on foster care and the assisted living waiver.
