Residential and Community Services
Monarch House provides a number of services geared towards youth and adults who may require treatment and/or services within community housing or residential placements or within their local community in order to facilitate access.
Agencies serving adults with developmental disabilities, including ASD, are faced with many challenges: funding constraints, scarce resources, and increased demand for service and supports. At Monarch House and CBI Health Group, we have created a framework of success; for today and tomorrow. Our expertise in managing the collaboration of health teams, community agencies, institutions and facilities combined with our understanding of the evolving needs in service delivery makes us an ideal partner for the future. We continue to develop effective partnerships and innovative service models, working to sustain and enhance services and outcomes for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. Working with community agencies, we can develop innovative ways to optimize service delivery and improve quality of life for clients.
What sets us apart is our belief that service providers need to work together to produce optimum results. Therefore, at Monarch House we take a collaborative approach that integrates a number of different clinicians, services, and agencies into a unified network that offers a much wider range of solutions. Through this integrated network we can foster best practices and identify superior performance, making it easier for more clients to receive effective treatment and appropriate services and supports.

Community Aphasia Programs
Monarch House aphasia programs are social communication groups for people living with acquired communication disorders. Our programs involve both small and large group activities and are intended for people who want to improve their communication. As an organization, we educate the community about aphasia and provide training and support to family members, friends, and caregivers.
Our goal is to enhance the communication skills and quality of life for people with aphasia using a Life Participation Approach to Aphasia (LPAA). Our services take into account the clients’ perspective and current communication abilities, and our programming is designed to reflect the clients’ varying needs, wants, and abilities.
The program strives to enhance the life participation of its members who are affected by aphasia and other acquired communication disorders by:
- Improving communication skills
- Providing access to information in aphasia-friendly formats
- Supporting caregivers
- Spreading community awareness of aphasia
- Reaching out to those with aphasia; and,
- Reducing isolation and depression
