Continuous Care

Residential Habilitation

Located in the beautiful Finger Lakes area in Geneva, New York, Lochland provides a unique, small residential setting for developmentally disabled adults. Our facilities are housed in five, state-certified and supervised Individual Residential Alternatives (IRAs) and one private tuition-supportive apartment. Each house has trained residential staff who supervise and encourage the residents in all areas of development. Our Staff members provide guidance and assistance when needed, and allow residents the freedom to make choices, voice opinions, and develop their own identities.

The area surrounding the campus is dominated by stately homes that border Seneca Lake, one of the largest of the Finger Lakes of upstate New York. Lochland’s campus of shaded groves of chestnut and oak trees, and spacious well-trimmed lawns that slope to the lake offer an atmosphere that is picturesque, park-like, and serene.

What Our Participants & Residents Say…

At Lochland, we encourage independence, exploration, and self-actualization within the boundaries of our safe environment.

Lochland School is pure freedom! I like that I can walk to the different houses on campus and I get the best advice from staff when I am in a crisis. I also love Lohand’s traditions.
Lochland Staff helps me study for my learner’s permit. I appreciate the help so much.
