Supported living provides assistance and supervision around the clock, if necessary. Usually one to four individuals live in a house or apartment, and Easterseals Arc provides direct support professionals to assist with life skills, such as taking medication, grooming, cooking, cleaning or handling finances.
In comparing Easterseals Arc’s supported living to other programs or providers, here are some things to consider:
Medical Care: All staff are CPR-certified and trained on first aid and dispensing medication. Also, each staff member is trained on each individual’s specific information prior to working in the home.
Transportation: When transportation is required, staff use their own vehicles. We check every staff member’s driving record upon hire and annually to ensure they maintain a clean driving record. Staff also must provide continuous proof of auto insurance. If an individual requires the use of a lift van, the staff will check out an agency van when necessary.
Accreditation: Supported Living is a CARF-accredited program.
