About The Host Home Program & Providers

Laradon’s Adult Host Home program provides individualized living situations to people who can benefit from living in the private home of a family or individual. Individuals enjoy living in a family setting, engaging in community activities and sharing household responsibilities. Host Home Providers create a caring support system and assist the individual with personal care, meals, finances, medical appointments and community connections.

Independent Host Home Providers contract with Laradon to provide comfortable and healthy environments that are appropriate to an individual’s needs. Providers view the positive capabilities of the individuals in their home and help the person have a normal life as possible.

Why Laradon’s Host Home Program Works

Laradon recruits a pool of qualified and committed providers who allow individuals the opportunity to be with someone that best meets their needs. A Host Home Provider may contract to care for up to two individuals in their home. Laradon thoroughly screens all Host Home Providers and conducts background checks. In addition, Laradon staff provides Host Home Providers with ongoing training, guidance and support.

Our individuals receive individualized care in a safe and welcoming home. Our Host Home Providers give consistent care in order to support the individual’s needs and ensure a meaningful life.
