Maple House is a small home-like residential facility, home to nine children and young adults aged 7 to 29 with disabilities and special needs in Grand Cayman. The home is managed by the Department of Children & Family Services with the aim of providing its full-time residents with as normal a life as possible in a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment.
Maple House opened in 1993, in response to the increasing demand for residential facilities for children with disabilities or in need of special care on island. Today, the home’s caring staff continues to provide 24-hour quality care and supervision to its young residents.
Staff assist each resident with physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual growth and development, while educational needs are met by the Lighthouse School and Sunrise Adult Training Centre educational programmes. Maple House also provides a number of in-house activity programmes.
In 2000, the four-bedroom home underwent major renovations and the residence now boasts a large dayroom, laundry room, storeroom and office space. The home also has a custom-built bus, designed specifically for wheelchair users.
The overall goal of the Department of Children & Family Services is to enhance the quality of life for special needs residents through the care and programmes offered at Maple House. The home ensures its residents receive their necessary healthcare services and closely monitors all health needs and enjoy regular social activities, outings and visits from family and friends.
