Walden Residential Centers

Walden Residential Centers

Walden Residential has been serving the IDD population for over 25 plus years! In 2010 Walden moved to a beautiful new building allowing all eight individuals to have their own private room. This new building has ample space for the residents to lounge, watch television, enjoy crafts, puzzles, sit in the sun and look out the windows.

Walden is a small family owned and run home located in Geneva Ohio. Walden currently serves eight men and women with intellectual disabilities. Walden has a great reputation with the community and is well received when in it.

Our Opportunities

Walden relies on its Direct Support Professionals (DSP) on daily basis. The DSP position is a great gateway into the healthcare field. One DSP who worked for Walden wanted to do more for herself. She felt Walden opened up that door because of the support from her supervisor. She went to school to be an LPN, graduated and moved on to her new career. She continues to stay in contact with Walden and that same supervisor.

Another DSP wanted to develop her career in the medical field after working at Walden and went to school for medical assistant. With the support from her supervisor and coworkers she graduated and was able to get job placement as a medical assistant.

These are just two stories out of the many employees who come through our doors to work as a Direct Support Professional.
