Assisted living

assisted living - also called sheltered home is a program designed to help people with autism develop the skills they need to live independently and successfully as adults.

With 2 different living options, the assisted living program is specially designed for young adults who are preparing to (partially) leave the care system. This can be done in a small- scale group form of a shared home with 3 or 4 residents or a fully independent living unit. Through this program, we provide these residents with the tools and support they need to build the skills and confidence needed to live independently and successfully.

One of the key benefits of the supported living program is that it provides young people with a safe and supportive environment where they can develop the practical skills they need to live independently. These can include things like budgeting, cooking and basic home maintenance, as well as more advanced skills like job hunting and career development.

Another benefit of the assisted living program is that it gives youth access to a wide range of resources and support systems. From financial assistance to educational support and mentorship, we work closely with each young person to ensure they have the tools and resources they need to succeed.

Perhaps most importantly, the assisted living program helps young people build the confidence and resilience they need to succeed in life. Through counselling, mentoring and other forms of support, we help young people develop the skills they need to manage stress, overcome adversity and persevere in the face of adversity.

Overall, the assisted living program is a powerful tool for helping young people develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed in life. By providing practical skills, resources and support, we help young people build the foundation they need to live independently and successfully as adults.
