Sometimes our residents are simply not capable of moving out on their own. For one reason or another they are unable to remain in an independant living situation but do not yet meet the criteria for a nursing home. These residents are allowed to stay with us as long as they need to. At present we have 14 residents who are considered 'permanent'. They have lived at the Stewart Community Home for anywhere from 5-30 years. Each one of them is unique, as are their needs.
