Supported Homes

Dawson Creek Society for Community Living provides an array of  options that are reflective of each individual’s personalities, needs, and preferences.

Included, is a home focused on complex health needs, another focused on complex behavioural needs, and one that is dedicated to aging individuals with developmental disabilities.

There are also options that include supporting individuals in their own homes; or for those looking for potentially lifelong companionship, there is Home Share.

1416 Supported Home

A DCSCL Strategic Planning Goal that came to fruition in April 2017, the Supported Home known as 1416, is a home for aging persons with developmental disabilities.

Licensed by CLBC and Northern Health, this is home to five people. Each person has their own private bedroom and access to the shared living quarters. With the realities of dementia and fading mobility in mind, the home was designed with an open concept, extra wide hallways and doorways, dementia friendly colors and flooring, and even different colored bedroom doors based on each person’s favorite color! Individuals are given as much independence as possible while ensuring that all the aspects of daily living are provided. The home is staffed 24 hours per day.

Individuals live in their own apartments, while staff support them with various life skills including acts of daily living, accessing the community, recreational activities, assistance with medical appointments, etc. Staff time is divided between the individuals within the cluster, depending on the level of support needed by each person. This program creates a safe, supportive atmosphere in which individuals participate fully in their own lives, to the extent which they are able
