In Galesburg, the DD Homes network has a group home that is tailored to support people with Prader-Willi Syndrome. There are healthy menus prepared by a dietician, counseling, exercise equipment, physical therapists, and nurses in place, along with an active environment, and staff trained specifically to support and encourage those with Prader-Willi Syndrome. DD Homes is a proud member of the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association.

We are lucky to have these homes right in our area. The staff is so good at understanding Michael, his needs and desires. Michael takes about 20 pills a day and some of them are more critical than others. We feel confident with the staff and nurses that they are dealing with that and his medications are being given correctly. They are on top of it. So that’s huge!
