Supported Living services provide a means of supporting a person who wishes to live in their own home or in a flat by themselves or with others. The person usually needs a level of support or supervision that is beyond what is provided by personal support and household management services. This is not intended to be a 24-hour support service. These services may also be appropriate for people who wish to move from their parental home or residential care into a supported living environment. SL services are also available to people who wish to stay in their own home but require more support because of increased needs.
