HOME SHARING
WHAT IS HOME SHARING?

In home sharing, an adult who needs a place to live and the person who provides support live in the individual’s or the provider’s home.

Home sharing enables an individual and a care provider to share many aspects of their lives, while maintaining a degree of separation. However, the care provider is responsible to provide support and assistance based on the individual specific needs and goals.

Each person served experiences a level of independence and community involvement that makes sense for the individual, with the support required to meet their daily needs.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

LACL finds the best match and helps ensure each living situation is safe, secure and supportive. Some individuals have a specific care provider in mind; others ask for help to find someone to share a home with.

LACL meets with potential providers and completes an extensive home study. Only people interested in creating a true sense of home are introduced to an individual and their family.

The individual can then choose a care provider with similar values and interests who they feel confident they can successfully share a home with. Individuals sometimes "try out" a living situation through respite to see if it is a good match.


WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I MOVE IN?

LACL provides ongoing monitoring and support to the individual, their family and care providers. This happens through home visits, conversations with the individual, their families and care providers, monthly care provider reports, and community contacts.

Many individuals receiving Home Sharing services also attend a LACL community inclusion or employment service. This allows us to see individuals throughout the week.
