Adult Prader-Willi Group Homes

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a complex genetic disorder most noted for a chronic feeling of hunger that can lead to excessive eating and obesity, according to the national Prader-Willi Association. This syndrome presents unique challenges for the individuals living with it and often require a home environment that’s specifically equipped to meet their complex needs. Monarch operates two group homes dedicated to the care of people living with Prader-Willi syndrome. The homes provide a dietician that focuses on each individual’s caloric needs and intake and who works with them one-on-one to promote a positive self-image and successful weight management. These homes also provide a food-secure environment to help ensure the success of the individual’s dietary plan.   

Monarch operates homes for individuals living with Prader-Willi syndrome in Cabarrus and Stanly counties.  Click on the following links to read about Monarch PWS residents Ted Patterson, Dillion Paquette and Beth Townsend.
