“Living on your own with support and with focus on directing your support services.”
Supported Living Services (SLS) assist people with developmental disabilities to live on their own, serving people who need more than nine hours per week of support and as much as 24 support hours per day.
SLS covers assistance in all the same areas as ILS and provides assistance so that people can pursue hobbies, interests, and community activities. We provide education and support in the following areas:
» Meal planning
» Grocery shopping
» Household maintenance
» Scheduling and attending medical and dental appointments
» Utilizing public transportation
» Personal attendant services for people who need help with physical and/or personal care
Supported Living Services also provide:
» Assistance with public benefit issues (SSI, Social Security, IHSS, MediCal, and MediCare)
» Assistance in finding medical, dental, and (if needed) mental health providers
» Assistance in finding and securing affordable, accessible, and safe housing
» Assistance in finding suitable housemates
SLS also provides access to a 24-hour emergency system for people who cannot respond to emergencies independently.
