Supported Living is an alternative to institutional care and offers family oriented services for eligible adults and children with developmental delays as well as mental, physical, or emotional challenges.

 

Our staff assists these individuals to become as independent as possible. Many, in fact, live in their own home. Our highly trained direct care staff meets the mandatory qualifications for Indiana.

They are flexible, respectful, creative, and promote the unique identity of each individual and family served. In addition, the Supported Living program also employs a Director, Assistant Director, Waiver Quality Assurance Coordinator, 3 QIDPs, 3 Staff Supervisors, a Clerical Assistant, and a Financial Eligibility Specialist to provide support for persons served.

 

We assist individuals with:

  • Personal budgeting and banking, including the use of checking and savings accounts and bill paying

  • Behavioral support plans and behavior management and intervention
  • Wellness coordination
  • Leisure activities and community access
