The Arc Otsego

Don't you love to hear those words after a busy day of work, school or fun? We all do and The Arc Otsego understands. Home means acceptance, a place where dreams are important, a place to be just who you are.

At The Arc Otsego we know how important a loving, caring, nurturing home environment is to a person's well-being.

Our team of caring, compassionate home managers, program coordinators, RN's and direct support staff are committed to providing the highest standard of person-centered care and support. Your needs and dreams are at the center of everything we do.

Home Life Options for You

The Arc Otsego offers a variety of community-based living arrangements that are located throughout Otsego County and integrated into their local communities. These residences maximize independence in self-care and are tailored to the needs, desires and abilities of those who live there. For those that would benefit from full, 24 hour a day support, a number of individualized residential alternatives or IRA's are available. Supported Apartment options are available for those that require less staff support. At all times, your happiness, safety and health are our primary concerns.

We put the "go" in Arc Otsego!

Regardless of which arrangement works best for you, living in an Arc Otsego residence means that you will live an active, full daily life. Want to see a Broadway musical? Take cooking lessons? Go fishing? Celebrate important life events? You can do this and more! Most importantly, we actively encourage and support connections with family and friends and we strive to strengthen the natural supports that exist in the community. And of course, at the end of a busy day of work, school and fun, you are welcomed home!

Getting Started

Getting started is easy. All inquiries begin by contacting the Director of Family Services to schedule a meeting-the first step in the intake process. Based on that meeting, the Family Services Director will make referrals to the Assistant Residential Director who in turn will arrange for an interview and tour of the residences, neighborhood and surrounding community.
