Shared Living Providers

Shared living is LifeShare’s residential lifestyle option for individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. LifeShare became a pioneer of the Shared Living model of residential support more than 20 years ago. Shared living providers open their homes to offer a community alternative to people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Rather than living in facility-based residential settings, group homes, nursing homes or staffed residences, individuals are paired into a family setting where mutual companionship and increased self-esteem are developed. They are encouraged to be involved in the community which leads to greater independence.

What is the Focus for Home Care/Shared Living Providers?

Providers assist individuals with all aspects of daily living, including general skill building, medication management, cultivating relationships, and enjoying new life experiences. With 24-hour support in a caring home setting, individuals maximize their quality of life.
