In the Shared Living model, an individual lives in a natural setting of a home provider family. Here, they can continue to be part of family life, while taking the next step towards independence in their own life.
This model of living allows for us to help identify the best match that meets the needs, values and vision of the individuals, the guardian and that of the provider family.
