Alternative Residential Services has 2 convenient locations, one in Walla Walla and one in Kennewick, Washington. We are certified by the state’s Developmental Disabilities Administration. For several years, we’ve been providing disabled and senior citizens with a safe, enriching, and supportive community as an alternative to other nursing home environments. We understand that each person has a unique set of needs and a distinct personality, so we don’t offer cookie cutter programs; rather, we customize our services for each client.
Alternative Residential Services’ current owner began working with the company in 1989 as a Direct Care staff member. Along with all the staff members, she treasures the rewarding benefits she receives through providing care and support services for our patients. We take pride in reintegrating our most medically fragile and disabled community members back into their lives at home and in their community so that they can enjoy life’s simple pleasures once again. Before their stay with us, simple things we often take for granted such as seeing family and friends, enjoying outdoor events, and hosting a barbeque are very hard for them to achieve. Restoring their ability to enjoy these activities makes what we do worthwhile.
The administration and employees at Alternative Residential Services are completely devoted to the needs of our clients, always striving to go the extra mile. We provide them with medication administration, G-Tube and J-Tube care, personal care, and household chore assistance. We also ensure they have access to transportation and community resources. All of our areas of service are supported by the appropriate management and supervision departments. In addition to meeting their physical and medical needs, we value our clients’ quality of life, personal happiness, and wellbeing. Our clients actively participate in social events in the community.
Since 1990, we’ve grown from offering supportive living services to 6 clients in 2 households to 10 additional clients in Walla Walla in 2000. Today, we’ve expanded to the Tri Cities area, serving 13 additional clients there and employing 71 professionals within our agency. Alternative Residential Services focuses on teamwork, recognizing that the absolute best care services are made possible through a care team that works toward a common goal. If you are a loved one are in need of supportive services to get back to a completely fulfilling lifestyle, contact us. We look forward to working with you.
