Supported Living Services
Spectrum strives to support individuals by providing services that allow them to live in their own homes and be a part of their community. These services enable adult participants to make choices, receive needed services and live more independently in their own home or in the family home.
Spectrum’s Supported Living Services for individuals include:
Homemaker Services – training and assistance with household tasks such as cooking, laundry, cleaning and other household maintenance tasks.
Mentorship Services – assistance with areas such as self-advocacy, understanding complicated health and safety issues, social and relationship issues, problem solving and decision making through methods like instructing, providing experiences, modeling, and advising.
Personal Care – assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL's) such as hygiene, bathing, eating, dressing, grooming, toileting and transferring. With personal care supports, you can even get help with shopping, money management, meal planning, grocery shopping, budgeting and bill paying.
Respite – service can be provided at your home or at a provider's home. Options include Hourly Supervision (under 10 hours per day) and Daily Supervision (10 hours or more per day up to 24 hours.)
Supported Community Connections – enable the participant to access typical activities and functions of community life such as community education and training, volunteering, learning to use public transportation, planning and attending events and building relationships.
Supported Employment – services include job development, job coaching, one-on-one support and transportation to and from the work site.
