Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Dear Cristina,

I have several homes in the Dade County area that would be suitable for your brother. You will have to do some phone work and footwork to see what YOU find suitable, but here is the list:

Peace of Mind Care Center Corp.
7420 North Oakmont Drive
Miami Lakes, FL 33015 map

Monarch House
721 SW 9th Street
Pompano Beach, FLNNN-NN-NNNNmap

Barc Housing Inc

2750 Sw 75th Avenue

Arc Of The Glades, The, Glades Area Associates For Retarded Citizens Inc
4250 NW 16th Street
Belle Glade, FL 33430-596

Mactown-Division Miami Adult
Mactown, Inc
6250 NE 1st Place

Worrell Group Home Inc

Most of these facilities should take Medicare but you must check with each one.

I hope that you can find a tranquil and caring place for him.

I wish both of you great blessings of peace, happiness, and contentment.
