Support and Independent Living

Achieve Independence with us

At our Supported Independent Living homes, we believe in empowering individuals to experience the freedom of living independently in a nurturing and supportive environment tailored to their unique needs. We understand that each person is different, and our goal is to provide a space where residents can thrive, lead fulfilling lives, and embrace a sense of autonomy.

Tailored Support for Individual Needs: Our Supported Independent Living homes are more than just residences; they are personalized havens where residents receive tailored support based on their unique requirements. Our dedicated support staff is trained to understand the specific circumstances of each participant, ensuring that assistance is not only effective but also attuned to individual preferences, abilities, and aspirations.

Promoting Autonomy and Belonging: We foster an atmosphere that promotes autonomy and a deep sense of belonging. Residents are encouraged to take charge of their lives, make decisions, and pursue personal goals. Our supportive environment is designed to be inclusive, ensuring that every individual feels valued and respected.

Independent Living Skills: Living independently involves mastering essential life skills. Our program places a strong emphasis on equipping residents with the skills they need to confidently navigate daily life. From cooking nutritious meals to maintaining a clean and organized living space, we provide hands-on training and support to develop practical skills that contribute to a sense of independence.

  • Cooking Skills: Our residents have the opportunity to learn and practice cooking skills, from meal planning to preparing delicious and healthy dishes. Cooking classes and supervised sessions ensure that everyone can enjoy the satisfaction of creating their own meals.
  • Cleaning and Organization: We believe that a tidy living space contributes to a positive and comfortable environment. Residents are guided in developing cleaning routines and organizational skills, fostering a sense of responsibility for their personal space.  
  • Budgeting and Financial Management: Understanding and managing personal finances is a crucial skill for independent living. Our program includes comprehensive training in budgeting, financial planning, and responsible spending. Residents learn to create budgets, track expenses, and make informed financial decisions, empowering them to handle their finances with confidence.
  • Transportation and Community Navigation: Navigating the community independently is an essential aspect of self-sufficiency. Our residents receive training on using public transportation, learning safe routes, and gaining a sense of familiarity with their community. This includes guidance on accessing public transportation options, such as buses or trains, and developing the skills to confidently move around the neighbourhood, fostering a greater sense of freedom and connectivity.

Supportive and Well-Trained Staff: Our support staff plays a pivotal role in creating a supportive environment. Each member is carefully selected, extensively trained, and committed to providing high-quality assistance. They are attuned to the specific circumstances of each participant, offering not only practical support but also emotional encouragement.

  • Tailored Training: Our staff undergoes continuous training to stay updated on the latest best practices and techniques in disability support. This ensures that they are well-prepared to address the unique needs and challenges of each resident.
  • Personalized Assistance: From medication management to assistance with daily activities, our support staff is there to provide personalized assistance while respecting the individual’s independence and privacy.
