Supportive Home Services

Individualized Support

Individuals within the Supportive Home Services program will partner with the SHS team to accomplish personalized goals. The individual and their circle of support will develop these goals collaboratively.  The ISP will be carefully monitored and evaluated to ensure that individuals in the program and their caregivers will have the supports needed to live a positive, productive life.  Intensive services will be provided through a core team of dedicated professionals and community supports.  Care, recreation and respite services will be provided to reduce stress and prevent crisis. The team will also provide training to individuals in the program and caretakers.
