Referral Procedure

Referrals may be made by contacting our referral email or by contacting our main office by telephone at 617-277-6140. Our Contact and Forms page also contains contact information.

For those interested in pursuing admission, a visit by an individual along with a family member(s) can be arranged. It is preferable that Form A be filled out before arranging the visit. After a visit if there is still interest all information listed on the Referral Checklist must be completed. The Step By Step admissions team will then review all of the information to ensure compatibility.


Residential Fees vary based on accommodations. Community Based Service Fees are based on services selected. Please email us or call our offices to inquire about our latest fee schedules.

Fees are generally paid by a combination of resident and family resources. Our experience has been that insurance coverage for our programs is uncommon.

A Service Agreement signed by a person responsible for payment is required prior to admission.
