The service recipients in this program require intermittent support while living in a home or apartment by themselves, with a roommate, or with family. The service recipient receives a minimum (from several hours per week) to moderate (daily) support from paid SLA staff according to the identified needs and desires. Support hours are determined by the team’s assessment of the service recipient’s service/support needs.
24 hour SLA
24 hour Supported Living Arrangements support service recipients in need of maximum support services. Staff are present whenever there are service recipients at home; there is awake or asleep staff at night depending on the needs of the service recipients. People typically live in a home with roommates in a community neighborhood and share the support services from the provider.
Service recipients who desire or need a family living situation receive services from a Host Home provider who includes the service recipient in their family life and activities. Direct services/supports are to assist in the acquisition, retention or improvement of skills for the service recipient to successfully reside in the community.
