Support Services

 

North Metro Support Services provides a wide range of services to help support individuals living at home with family members or living independently in the community.  

North Metro Support Services are designed to supplement existing natural, community, and family supports and resources that are already in place. 

The services and supports provided by the SLS program are intended to work in concert with existing resources and are tailored to meet the individual needs of each program participant to assure that the individual lives as independently and safely as possible.

Overnight Respite
Respite can be provided on an overnight basis, to provide relief for caregivers, or in the absence of a caregiver.  The respite can be provided at the consumer’s home, or in the private residence of a respite provider.

Supported Community Connections  (SCC)

SCC provides assistance to support the abilities and skills necessary to enable the participant to access typical activities and functions of community life such as those chosen by the general population, including community education or training, or retirement and volunteer activities.  SCC provides a wide variety of opportunities to facilitate and build relationships and natural supports in the community, while utilizing the community as a learning environment to provide services and supports as identified in the SP.  These activities are conducted in a variety of settings in which participants interact with community members.  These types of services may include socialization, adaptive skills and personnel to accompany and support the individual in community settings, resources necessary for participation in activities and skill acquisition, retention, or development.  Supported Community Connections help to promote safety and independence, develop skills for participation in the community, and work toward personal goals.

SCC activities can be provided one-on-one or in a small group setting.
