Supportive Housing

Supportive housing provides services to people who have intense, irregular, or unpredictable needs for activities of daily living support that are not available through home support or chronic care services. These needs require 24 hour availability of on-site attendant care.

Supportive Housing provides essential non-medical personal support services on a long term contractual basis to persons with a physical disability or traumatic brain injury which prevents the individual from carrying out the activities of daily living unaided. Clients must be able to direct their own services and lease their own apartment.

Attendant services are provided for activities of daily living such as bathing and toileting, range of motion exercises as well as the instrumental activities of daily living such as life-skills and light housekeeping support.

These services are delivered within an apartment or townhouse complex setting and include the following locations:

  • Aghabi Place

    Providing support to individuals with physical disabilites in their own apartments.

Recharge services provide temporary respite care in the home for adults with disabilities in order to provide a brief period of relief or rest for the family members, guardians or other people who are their regular caregivers.
