Fircrest School is a full service, therapeutic community serving a diverse population of about 220 residents with developmental intellectual disabilities. Campus based, it features shared homes within a skilled nursing facility and an intermediate care facility. Centralized medical, therapeutic and recreational services are provided in both programs for long-term residents as well as for people who need short-term, respite care or crisis intervention. Each resident's care is individualized as determined by an interdisciplinary team which includes the person's guardian or parent.
The Fircrest nursing home program (NF/IDD) is the only federally certified skilled nursing facility in Western Washington licensed for the long term care of people with developmental, intellectual disabilities. It provides individualized health care and activities for people with unique medical challenges. Repeatedly, the program has been named one of the nation’s top nursing homes by the Consumer’s Research Council of America.
The Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/ID) provides individualized habilitative services that support and enhance each person's skills and strengths. This includes individualized adult training work programs and recreation, both on and off campus.
