What is "Supported Living?"
Supported Living is an environment where an individual with disabilities is assisted to live independently of an institution. The home may be an apartment unit or a single family house. The individual is encourged and assisted to learn increased independence in life skills at home and in community involvement, as well. These life skills may include banking and budgeting skills, household skills such as cooking and cleaning, community interaction skills, grooming and hygiene skills, etc. Support may be provided for specific hours less than 24 or for a full 24 hours depending on need and/or program.
