DCSCL operates three clusters within the Supported Living Program; 1408 Cluster and 1328 Cluster share supports 24 hours per day while Centennial Cluster provides limited daytime supports based on the needs of the individuals supported.
This supported option is suitable for people with basic life skills that are significantly independent. The intention of the program is to promote as much independence as possible, As such, individuals live in their own apartments and staff support them ‘just enough’ to be successful with various life skills, including acts of daily living, health and assistance with medical appointments, diet, accessing the community, recreational activities, employment and volunteering, 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.
1408 Cluster currently supports five adults with disabilities and includes a wheelchair accessible van. 1328 Cluster supports three individuals, while the number of individuals supported in Centennial Cluster fluctuates and is dependent on a number of variables. In addition to receiving assistance with acts of daily living, each individual within a Cluster, is also supported to maintain connections with family and friends, and to engage in holistic, home-based activities such as, baking, crafts, exercise, and more.
People living in the homes are responsible for maintaining their homes and take great pride in making them reflect their own personal preferences.
