This Program is designed to provide a residential home placement with a trained Community Caregiver as a roommate who will ensure health and safety while providing guidance and Positive Behavioral Support. The residential home can be provided either by the agency, a family member of the individual or the Care Provider. Accommodations can be made to reflect the needs of the person supported and the living environment can be modified to welcome preferences such as food, clothing, entertainment, travel and other personal choices.

Community Caregivers will be actively engaged in planning activities in the community and arranging quality time with family, friends, guardians, and peers to develop and support lasting relationships. Transportation can be arranged based on the needs of the person supported and an individual Service Plan is designed to formally evaluate care and monitor success towards goals.
