MAKING A HOME


We advocate for and provide supports for people to move into their own homes in the community. We support individuals and their families throughout the entire transition process and assist them to:

 

  • Choose the type of home (e.g., house, apartment) and which neighbourhood to live in
  • Carefully select who they want to live with
  • Determine and meet any accessibility needs
  • Personalize their homes with attention to individual decorating preferences
  • Ensure they experience warmth, security and safety
  • Create a welcoming space where family and friends are encouraged to visit and socialize
  • Access self-directed supports according to individual needs and abilities
  • Live as independently as possible
