Independent Living

This program is designed to provide individually tailored residential supports to assist adults with a developmental disability to meet their goal of living independently (or inter-dependently) in the community. Facilitators provide assistance in various areas such as meal preparation, personal hygiene, medication administration, budgeting, use of public transit, home management, health promotion and community orientation and participation. Facilitators also support individuals in their choice of working, volunteering or leisure activities. Supports are based on the principles of person directed planning, self-determination, social inclusion, citizenship and choice.

All services and supports provided will be respectful of the social, linguistic and the cultural diversity of families and communities and follow the QAM support services guidelines.
