CCMS assists the individual in choosing and coordinating a variety of support services needed to exist in a safe environment. Such example would include requiring assistance in the logistics associated with a visit to the dentist, obtaining a haircut, or even maneuvering a romantic date. Ideally, supports should cultivate a keen sense of self-determination in keeping with their own interests, cultures, languages, and religions; with strong emphasis on facilitating the individual to enjoy their life.
Relationships with others represent an essential component of a healthy lifestyle and often those with disabilities have been isolated and polarized from ordinary life in their communities. An important component of Supported Living revolves around helping the individual develop relationships within their environment. In addition, Supported Living allows services to adjust with the ebb and flow of the needs of the individual.
There are a variety of individuals with a plethora of disabilities receiving Supportive Living services. The range of services are as unique as the individuals whom we serve. Additionally, the spectrum of needs range from those requiring low-maintenance supportive services, to those requiring 24-hour care. Supported Living represents a productive means for individuals with developmental disabilities to live as independently as possible in their own communities, with funding from public funds. These services and supports are identified on an Individual Service Plan (ISP).
