It takes a cohesive team to deliver individualized medical care to each person with developmental disabilities living at the Hattie Larlham Center for Children with Disabilities.
Lead by a medical director, Hattie Larlham’s medical team is comprised of nurses, habilitation assistants and therapists who oversee the 24-hour-a-day individualized therapy and medical needs.
The Hattie Larlham Center for Children with Disabilities staffs an onsite dietary department that serves nearly 500 meals a day. Each meal is prepared to meet the dietary requirements of each child or adult with developmental disabilities receiving care at Hattie Larlham.
The Hattie Larlham Center for Children with Disabilities is equipped with advanced medical technology. For example, the technology unit, built in 2007, was designed to treat the most complex medical conditions affecting people with developmental disabilities. People with developmental disabilities receive around-the-clock support and monitoring from the Hattie Larlham medical team.
Every aspect of the technology unit was designed to help people with developmental disabilities. Air ducts in the ceiling pump clean, filtered air 24 hours a day. The floors include an antibacterial coating to help prevent the spread of unwanted germs. Even the temperature is constantly monitored, using the most advanced technology, to ensure comforatble living conditions for people with developmental disabilities.
