Types of Community Living Options
The Community Living Program offers persons who desire to live with others the opportunity to do so with a 24 hour program of services designed to meet the individual needs and the care and support necessary. This program is designed to serve persons who have a development disability with services delivered in a licensed facility.
Individuals who prefer living alone or with one other roommate have the opportunity to live in apartments that also have 24 hr staff supports available at the complex. This model works well for people who don't need constant 1:1 supervision but like having staff supports easily accessible.
Individually Designed Supports:
The Community Living Program provides in-home supports for individuals who require a specific number of staff hours support time per week. This model works for people who live in their own home, or with family members/roommates who need specific assistance in areas such as personal hygiene, home maintenance, recreational activities etc.
