ALSO_supported_living_04We have a supported living staff that assists 13 individuals living in their own home, with or without roommates. Individuals receiving supported living assistance, receive whatever assistance necessary for them to continue living successfully and safety in their own space. The goal of our supported living service is to offer customized support for individuals with disabilities using ALSO services, while ensuring these individuals maintain their own independence.

Supported living offers an approach where people with disabilities maintain the control of where they live, how they live, and how often they receive our support. We can provide assistance with meal preparation, household tasks, medical assistance, and all other aspects of personal care that a person needs.

Our talented Direct Support Professionals attend on-going rigorous training programs and must undergo an extensive background check before becoming an ALSO employee.
