The goal of independent living is realized for many of the people we serve with the help of a Lifeworks Supported Living program. Because each person is unique, Lifeworks offers a variety of supported living options.
This program, often called the In-Home Support Program, serves individuals who live independently in the community. Lifeworks Case Managers facilitate continued independent living by providing four to up to twenty-four hours of weekly service and arrangements including assistance with the following:
- Advocacy: providing support and promoting self advocacy at work, home and in the community. Assistance with entitlements and programs such as Social Security, Medicare, MassHealth, The Ride, Section 8 and local housing.
