EPIC Long Island opened its first residential home in 1980. Since then, we have opened 17 additional homes throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
We offer a home environment and comfortable living for each of our individuals while parents, relatives, and other advocates can be reassured in knowing that their family member is well taken care of in a supervised 24-hour setting. Each person along with his/her advocate is involved in the development of his/her individual plan that includes community inclusion, preferences, and personal goals, as well as a wide array of supports and services to meet his/her needs.
Each residence is unique with individuals who have developmental disabilities and various life challenges. Not only do we obtain those services and supports needed for the individual, we strive to modify the environment so that when a person’s needs change, we allow him/her to age in place.
Each of our individuals is treated with the utmost dignity and respect. We provide opportunities for all individuals to enhance their overall quality of life by encouraging independence and self-actualization at home and in the community. A variety of recreational activities are offered to everyone. They participate in activities of their choice, including sporting events, Broadway shows, museums, bowling, concerts, destination vacations, and much more. Family members/advocates are always welcome to visit their loved ones at celebrations and throughout the year.
