    Residential Services

    Comcare provides homes for individuals with developmental disabilities in Greeneville, Johnson City and Erwin, Tennessee.  These services are provided in ICF-IDD group homes, Supported Living homes and Family Model homes.

    The individuals in all of our homes have a private bedroom that they can decorate as they choose.  At least one support staff is present in the home at all times to supervise and assist the individuals as needed.

    A typical day for individuals living in a Comcare home starts with the morning routine:  getting dressed, eating breakfast and completing grooming tasks.  During the week, the individuals ride the van to the day program for work and activities.  After arriving home from the day program, it is time for the evening routine of snack, household activites, outings, supper, bath and preparation for bed.

    Community outings are a very important part of supported home living.  Individuals choose (with staff support) to participate in a variety of the following activities:  grocery shopping, going to the pool, playing ball and walking in the gym, going out to eat, going to the movies going to the park, shopping for clothes, going to church, participating in community events to attend and enjoy.

    Comcare assures that all medical services as covered by TennCare are obtained for each individual, including assessments that are needed.

    Residential support is provided 365 days a year.  Family contact and family visits visits are encouraged.

    The residential programs allow people with developmental disabilities to live as independently as possible with supports from Comcare.

    Facility and Community Based Day Services

    Comcare provides a variety of day services for the people who live in our homes and to other individuals in the community.  These services, which are provided at the facility or in the community, are designed to provide each individual with a meaningful day.  A few individuals in our day program assemble parts for a local industry.  This work is very rewarding because they can work at their own pace while being productive and earning a paycheck.  Other individuals spend their day at the program working on prevocational skills and community living goals.

    Supported Employment

    Individuals have jobs in the community through the Supported Employment section of Comcare’s day program. Each person has a job coach who supports them to do their job. These individuals are employed at McDonalds, Tusculum College, the Rest Area on the interstate, Quality Inn, Hampton Inn, 4-H Camp, YMCA, Fazolis, Luke's Pizza, Burdisco, and several cleaning jobs. Many of the individuals have held their job for more than 9 years. We are very proud of the accomplishments of people who have jobs in the community.
