About La Casa MHRC

La Casa Mental Health Rehabilitation Center (MHRC), operated by Telecare Corporation, is a 190-bed program providing assistance to adults with serious mental illness. La Casa offers evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation for individuals who would otherwise be in a state hospital or acute care facility.

In 1988, Telecare opened La Casa MHRC in Norwalk, California and in 1997, our program moved to a spacious nine-acre site, featuring a full-size gym and swimming pool.

Treatment at La Casa is based on the philosophy that, regardless of the degree of impairment, all individuals have the potential to achieve valued roles and make choices about living, learning, and working.

Services and Supports
