Supported Living Services

Supported living is a lifestyle option for adult individuals with developmental disabilities who desire to live independently in a home of their choice—with support from agencies like us as well as family and friends. In supported living the individual has the right to determine the direction of their life and with whom and where they wish to live. We offer them options in the support of the core philosophies of supported living—individual choice and independence.

Supported living services are not unlike independent living skills in that the individual will continue to receive direct one-to-one instruction, complete with cues and prompts to gain better skills in areas of their life which need attention. However, the focus of attention in supported living services lies in the independence and freedom gained by sharing their independence with support staff—who are eager to provide the individual with a safe and healthy environment—first and foremost. Support staff will ensure individual has taken care of the financial aspect of their lives—including paying the rent, utilities, and other expenses—before assisting them with financial management. Individuals receiving supported living services can typically expect to receive assistance in the following areas:

  • Financial Management
  • Medical Care Management
  • Mental Health Management
  • Home Maintenance
  • Generic/Community Resources
  • Home Relocation Assistance
  • Mobility Training
  • Meal and Menu Planning
  • Personal Hygiene
  • Safety Awareness
  • Community Integration

Supported living services offer the individual the opportunity to make their preferences, and dreams and wishes for the future be heard. With the proper amount of support and instruction, individuals can, and do, successfully live and prosper within our communities. An important aspect of supported living services is the individual’s circle of support—people who offer their voice and support to assist the individual to live independently. The circle-of-support is usually made up of people who know the individual the best and may include the following individuals:

  • Family
  • Friends
  • Advocates
  • Neighbors
  • Clergy
  • Agency Personnel
  • Regional Center Personnel
