Parent Meeting

On November 3, leaders from the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) and Bellwether Behavioral Health met with families of residents of Carlton Palms in Mount Dora. The parents and guardians heard the latest on transition planning activities that are occurring at Carlton Palms. The facility will be closing in March 2019. Attendees also had time to ask questions of speakers to ensure they had a clear understanding of the transition process.

Both organizations are working hard to smoothly move people from the larger facility to smaller home-like settings in their local communities. So far, 32 residents have made the change to smaller group homes. There are more than 150 residents that will embark on the transition process over the next two years.
