Narrative

Persons who live independently typically receive fewer than 24-hour supports. Instead, they receive a negotiated and planned number of hours of support over a week’s time, depending upon their skills, degree of independence, and complexity of personal issues and lifestyle.

The flexible hours of support provided coincide with problem solving needs. If a person is having difficulty achieving community integration, for example, one evening per week may be devoted to attending an advocacy group (e.g., People First), a church social, or a sports league. Accompanying staff will make every effort to help the person find community integration by one means or another, realizing that it may take several efforts to do so.

Hours of support may also be devoted to attending a medical appointment, helping to reconcile a check book, establishing food stamp eligibility, seeking a housing voucher, and helping with other meaningful tasks. The objective is not simply to provide companionship, but to support skill building and problem-solving.
