Because everyone deserves to be part of a family.
Shared Family Living connects a person with a disability with a qualified family who is willing to share their home. It is a way to continue to live, work and thrive in the community when natural supports (family and friends) are not available and an individual cannot live alone safely.
A Shared Family Living home is much more than a place to live.
Providers open up their homes, lives and families, giving care in a supportive, home environment. These unique living arrangements foster independence, encourage community involvement and help to enhance quality of life.
What makes someone a great Shared Family Living provider? Patience, creativity, problem-solving skills, a strong sense of commitment and being an innate nurturer are all important. They come from all walks of life – from young families to retirees and everything in between. Compassionate caregiving is a calling for our home providers.
