Residential Supports or Group Home Living
TACL provides support for people who have an intellectual disability in residential settings or “group homes”. Our homes consist of 5 or 6 people sharing a home with each person receiving specialized support from support workers 24 hours per day.
The residences are home-like, accommodating people based on their abilities and care requirements. Each person has their own individualized private room.
Our residences are located in neighbourhoods in Trail, Fruitvale and Warfield.
In our residential settings, we help you with your personal care, and assist you in scheduling and attending different appointments with you. For example, if you were not feeling well, we would help you to make a doctor’s appointment and support you to go see the doctor.
Personal Space And Responsibilities
- Every person living in a group home has their own bedroom that is their own private area.
- When you live in a group home, you contribute your part in paying the rent/support, utilities and groceries that provide all of you meals
- The rest of your money is yours to buy the things you want or need
