Sharing a Home, Sharing a Life

May 7, 2015 - Duration 2.75 hrs

People with disabilities are often placed in housing situations based on vacancies or other considerations about availability.  They may move into a community they don’t know, and have to share a room and live with people they haven’t chosen. In contrast to this approach, which is often the norm, this presentation will demonstrate how life can be designed around the person. This presentation will describe how the supports a person needs can be provided while helping them, and share a home and a life with someone they respect, have chosen, and can use as a positive role model.
