Greenville County was the first in South Carolina to fight against institutionalization and we continue to lead the way in supporting full community integration for people with intellectual and related disabilities such as autism, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. We offer complete housing options at multiple levels of independence.
Who We Help
We have residential locations for adults with disabilities at multiple levels of independence. Placement is determined by SC DDSN and priority is given to people with aging parents or caregivers. We are proud to offer more than housing options than any other provider in the state. Please see below for the levels of housing that we offer.
How We Help
Residents receive comprehensive nursing care, dietary instructions, therapies, and psychological and quality assurance services. Services vary depending on level of housing, and individual’s level of independence. Thrive Upstate staff regularly monitors an individual’s progress to determine if their housing needs evolve.
All participants in Thrive Upstate Residential Housing have access to vocational training and the multiple day services we provide. The support team, participant, and family work together to create an individualized plan, based around the desires of the participant.
- Supervised Living Program I
SLP I is the highest level of independence, offering residents weekly support and check-ins with the program manager. Residents choose where they wish to live from a variety of apartments and homes throughout the community. Most often, residents need minimal assistance with maintaining their health and finances.
- Supervised Living Program II
SLP II offers residents the opportunity to live in individual apartments owned by Thrive Upstate. Residents primarily work and live independently, but also have 24/7 access to staff and transportation, as well as assistance with medication, employment and finances.
- Community Training Home
Family style living for adults with disabilities. Adults live with up to 3 roommates and have transportation available, as well as 24/7 staff assistance. CTH Homes prepare residents for greater independence.
- Community Residential Care Facility
Residents here are generally independent in decision making and don’t require continuous nursing services. Private rooms and 24/7 staff support for individuals with some medical or behavioral needs.
- Intermediate Care Facility
Intermediate Care Facilities are an alternative to the traditional nursing home. In intimate settings, these homes are limited to 8-12 residents. They provide full assisted living supports, daily nursing services and RNs on call around the clock.
