Krol House Boys Intensive Residential Treatment Facility
9 Mammoth Road
The Krol House Boys Intensive Residential Treatment Facility is located in a residential neighborhood on 9 Mammoth Road, Manchester, NH. It is a licensed facility for 5 boys ranging in age from 5-21 years old, however, the primary target population is the older adolescent with the average being seventeen.
Residents in this milieu may typically have a mental illness diagnosis as well as being developmentally delayed, have intense emotional and behavioral needs, and be receiving special education services through an IEP. Residents typically have some level of independence with some self-care assistance. Easter Seals will consider referrals outside these criteria on a case-by-case basis after a thorough team assessment. Assessments will encompass independent living and social skill functioning levels, previous clinical and behavioral treatment progress and current needs.
Resident’s ages: 10-21
Length of Stay: Based on treatment
Admission Sources: NH DJJS/DCYF, School Districts and all other New England & NY agencies.
The key principle of this program is to provide a place for the residents to gain greater knowledge and competence to access community resources prior to their impending discharge. The supported resources include but are not limited to the following skills:
- Filling out job applications
- Learning to use public transportation
- Going grocery shopping (plan and prepare their own meals)
- Budgetary skills (to manage money to purchase food, clothing, etc.)
- Attending public events
All of which provides the residents with the tools needed to acquire greater comfort and confidence in their ability to be more autonomous.
The program is geared to support youth to prepare for a healthy, productive life in order to successfully transition out of care and into adult living. Youngsters suitable for this program can safely access community resources with varying levels of supervision. The Program is an intensive teaching program focusing on life skills such as self-care, cooking, house hold maintenance and cleaning, employment, safety awareness, health and nutrition, accessing local transportation, social skills training and individual recreation. Residents will attend school, develop independent living skills through home activities such as cooking and cleaning, and enhance skills to gain employment and actively interact within the community.
The philosophy at the facility is to provide the highest quality treatment-oriented service to residents who will be transitioning to an independent living arrangement or semi-supportive living program. The program is designed to be highly structured through clinically driven groups, individualized instruction, treatment planning, transition planning, and comprehensive skill building training utilizing a hands-on approach.
The Easter Seals residential programs assist youth in becoming as independent and self-reliant as possible. In order to accomplish this, Easter Seals believes in the following principles as related to the resident.
Each resident in the program has:
- The right to receive needed services, which is advocated by all staff on behalf of the residents whenever necessary.
- The right to make decisions (or the parent/guardian has the right, as the case may be) regarding the progress of the resident’s program.
- The right to be involved in the development of their own program.
- The right to confidentiality, except in life-threatening situations.
- The right to receive services in a safe, supportive and structured atmosphere.
Residents are active participants in their treatment. There are multiple components, interventions, as well as individual and group counseling applications, designed to help the residents focus on their treatment goals. The program provides the individuals with an experience of practicing skills relating to safety, daily living needs, and community connections/involvements.
Within 30 days of placement, an assessment is started consisting of a home study, a psychosocial assessment; an identified needs study, independent living assessment and an initial treatment plan. The treatment plan is written with all team members’ input and is designed to meet the specific needs of each resident. Monthly team meetings are held for the first three months of placement and quarterly thereafter. A monthly report and a quarterly educational report are mailed out to all team members.
