Park West Court Apartments



Transitions to Independent Living

Park West Court Apartments supports individuals in their choices by providing individualized planning, programming, and services. A dedicated team of professionals works together to identify opportunities that build upon the capabilities of each person, promoting personal independence and community membership through a consistent, educational approach to everyday living.


Situated among the trees on the west side of Columbus, Park West Court Apartments offers individuals the opportunity to build independence in a safe, supportive environment.

Eight separate apartments are spread throughout the campus, each accomodating up to eight people. Our apartments are designed to enhance privacy and meet the unique needs of every individual. Personalized rooms are important, and individuals are encouraged to decorate theirs as they like. Apartments residents eat meals together, which we refer to as “family style dining”. Direct support and nursing staff are available 24 hours a day to assist individuals as needed and help them work towards greater independence.

Each apartment faces a beautiful courtyard and includes porch swings, picnic tables, and grills. The courtyard is a wonderful gathering place for cookouts and live-music events.

Adjacent to the apartments, our administrative offices provide space for our therapy team, programming team, and the large recreation room.

At Park West Court Apartments we believe that every individual is capable of achieving greater independence. Guided by the individual, a team of professionals works to create a person-centered plan to help them achieve their goals.

Each person-centered plan is comprehensive and encompasses :

  • What is important to the individual
  • Individuals’ goals and the strategies designed to help achieve them
  • Personal care and dietary information
  • Adaptations and appliances that support mobility
  • Communication preferences
  • Work and day service information
  • Safety, risk, and supervision needs
  • Medical needs
  • Other service areas (laundry, housekeeping, leisure, money management, etc.)

The team assisting each individual in their person-centered plan includes:

    The Direct Support Professional provides assistance as needed with activities of daily living, personal care, community integration, and work towards the achievement of individuals’ goals identified in their person-centered plan.
  • Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professional (QIDP)
    The QIDP assumes primary responsibility for the integration, coordination, and monitoring of the person-centered plan and active treatment programs for each individual on their assigned caseload. They coordinate with therapists, ancillary, and day programming to provide professional services related to the person-centered plan.
  • Social Services Team
    The Social Services team works as an advocate for the emotional and social needs of individuals, and help to link them with community supports. They also obtain and maintain all benefits, social histories, and consents.  They ensure that individuals’ rights are observed and help to resolve any grievances that individuals may have. They are also able to assist with setting up pre-need funeral arrangements.
