We're A Minnesota Business Leaders in Healthcare Award Finalist!

We're proud to be named among the finalists for the Minnesota Business Magazine's Leaders in Health Care Awards!


At Living Well Disability Services, our wellness philosophy is impressed upon every person who comes through our doors. We cover eight dimensions of wellness throughout our organization; Physical, Emotional, Social, Occupational, Environmental, Financial, Cultural/Spiritual and Intellectual.

Employees participate in wellness programs, annual biometric testing, premium health discount incentives and a variety of physical activity and healthy lifestyle challenges. From healthy food choices to “Hope in the Workplace” activities, we’re finding ways to meet our goals for 2016 which address overall health, stress management and physical activity.

Our staff work to support individuals with disabilities and each person supported creates an individualized wellness plan with personal goals aimed at physical fitness and community connections.  Plans include health coaching, horticulture, art and music therapies, volunteerism, and mind body wellness. Improved nutrition and increased physical activity has resulted in a better quality of life for both employees and people with disabilities.

Living Well Disability Services Named a Star Tribune Top Workplace for the Second Year in a Row

Following our ranking as a Top 150 Workplace in 2015, Living Well Disability Services has again been named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune for 2016. The Top Workplaces special edition was published in the Star Tribune on Sunday, June 26th. The report is also available on the Star Tribune website. “We are honored to be named among the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota for the second year in a row,” said Julie Manworren, President and CEO. “Comments on the 2016 survey note that Living Well Disability Services employees care deeply about the people we serve and enjoy a work environment that recognizes, encourages, and appreciates the employees. We’ve created a culture where constant feedback is sought after and utilized toward meeting our mission of transforming lives.”

Living Well Disability Services supports people impacted by intellectual and developmental disabilities wherever they live: in their own home, their family’s home or in one of the 33 group homes owned and operated by the organization. Innovation in service, wellness, and technology help people pursue their goals and live as independently as they desire. Over the last year we’ve upgraded our health and program software, promoted 45 employees and provided more than 623,000 hours of direct support.

'ARRM Cares Award' Winner - Akoele Danklou

Living Well Disability Services is proud to announce that Akoele Danklou, Personal Advocate at our Mary Adele Home, has been named a 2016 ‘ARRM Cares Direct Support Professional Award’ winner!

Akoele began her career with our organization six years ago. What began as an asleep overnight position out of necessity for an extra job grew into the role of Personal Advocate out of her desire to bring change into people’s lives.

Richard H. lived in the home where Akoele began her work with Living Well Disability Services. Richard did not warm up to people easily; the wall he built around himself often kept others at a distance. Akoele’s calm presence penetrated that wall, and eventually broke through it. In 2015, Akoele realized she had developed a strong bond with Richard. As a result, she asked to become his Personal Advocate. Over the past year, the connection between Akoele and Richard has brought changes into Richard’s life that no one thought possible.
