In-Home Support

The options below focus on Homemaker/Personal Care (HPC) services. In each home setting, providers help you or your loved one develop and maintain independent living skills, such as personal hygiene, dressing, feeding, transfer and ambulatory needs, cooking, cleaning and more. This support can be provided on an as needed basis.

  • Would you like to live on your own? In-home support providers can give you the skills you need to live independently.
  • Are you living with a family member with a developmental disability? In-home support providers can give extra care to your loved one that’ll help them learn essential skills.

Shared Living

In a shared living setting, also known as group homes, up to four individuals reside together in a single home.  You have the option to choose your roommates and your residential service provider.  In-home support staff provide around-the-clock care to assist individuals with daily living and to meet the goals that you identify on your Individual Service Plan. Shared living/group homes are fully accessible to accommodate every need.

Adult Family Living

Adult family living is when an immediate family member, like a sibling or parent, lives with you and provides paid Individual Options (IO) Waiver services to you at home. Your family member will help and support you with your daily living needs.

Foster Care Living

Many individuals in Summit County open their homes to individuals with developmental disabilities for adult foster care living. This setting creates a family environment while providing essential in-home support.
