What is a Shared Living Provider?
A shared living provider (SLP) creates an opportunity for people with disabilities to live in a private family home and receive individualized care. SLPs can be an ideal transition for people who have been living in a group home or independently but now need more individualized care.
How does it work?
First, families go through extensive screening and training. Then, they’re matched with an individual who will move into their home. The family can provide support with self-care needs, money management, medical care, and leisure/recreational activities.
