Residential buildings are where residents actually live. These buildings include a dayroom for residents to socialize, watch television, play games, and interact with on-duty staff. In the back half of each residential building is a dining room and small kitchen. Residents rotate duties in assisting with minor meal preparation and cleaning. Residents are also responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of their own rooms. At the center of each residential building is a nurses' station where staff are located and are present 24 hours a day to monitor and assist residents.
