Community Support and Independent Living Services
We support clients to live independent and self-sufficient lives in the community and receive support and/or treatment in their own environment that is appropriate to their needs.
Dependent on the community in which you live, this can be done in a number of ways.
- Subsidized housing, rent subsidies and other housing resources
- Supportive counselling and psycho-education to individuals, groups, and families
- Psychiatric consultation and review
- Psycho-social rehabilitation programs
- Connection with community resources and navigation of healthcare and social systems
- Occupational therapy for the skills of daily living
- Vocational support services
- Peer support
Often, care plans are developed in collaboration with the client or with support of their family and friends.
The programs we offer are collaborative, strengths-based and person-directed. We want to improve the quality of life for our clients with community integration, recovery support and independent living skills.
