Person Directed Supports offers both community homes and lifesharing supports. Each individual is placed in the best possible environment for them to grow and learn. Our residential supports are designed around each person’s specific needs. Individuals are given opportunities to make decisions and choices about their lives through the Person-Centered Planning Process. A caring and dedicated team of direct services professionals provide necessary supports in each living environment.
A community home usually varies between one and three individuals depending on individual needs. We provide clean, safe, and comfortable homes designed with needed equipment.
In this setting, people are encouraged to socialize within the home and community. Services based on each person’s needs and wants. This may include:
- Personal care
- Household management
- Money management
- Meal planning and cooking
- Building relationships
- Beginning hobbies
While living in Community Homes, individuals receive support to realize their personal potential while pursuing independent, productive, and rewarding lives.
In a lifesharing setting, individuals live in a home with a host family. This gives people an incredible opportunity to share their lives and household with adults with intellectual disabilities. Placement into a loving, caring home is based on each individuals Person-Centered plan.
Services and supports are provided for that person depending on their specific needs. Lifesharing encourages the individual to interact in the community while increasing meaningful relationships with others. Share unforgettable moments with that special person and learn from each other. This helps people grow and develop to their fullest potential. Host families consult with physicians, family members, and the support team about the individual including progress and ongoing development.
