Support Home Coordinator

The Supported Living Coordinator (SHC) works within the Support Home Program which is a program that provides residential supports to Individuals who are 18 and older and are PDD eligible. We offer flexible models of service including Supportive Roommate, Supportive Neighbour and Respite. Each model of support is based on the Individuals support needs and recommendations from the PDD’s Service Plan.

The SHC works along side the Individual and their support network to ensure that the right services are being offered and that the right match has been found. It is the SHC primary responsibility to ensure the health and safety of the Individual and to ensure that the support an Individual is receiving is being delivered in a conscientious, warm, and caring manner. This is accomplished by the SHC completing regular home visits, monitoring for all health, and safety requirements within the homes and receiving detailed reports on a monthly basis.

The SHC is also responsible for the screening of all Supportive Roommates, Supportive Neighbours and Respite Workers (known as Subcontractors) as well as ensuring that Subcontractors are upholding their contractual obligations such as training requirements and documentation on an ongoing basis. The SHC also develops the Support Plans, completes the Individual Support Plan Reviews and collaborates with other agencies that may also be providing supports to that Individual.

Support Home Monitor

The Support Home Monitor works within the Support Home Program and is assigned to a Support Home Coordinator (SHC). The role of the Support Home Monitor is similar to that of a SHC in that they monitor the homes and the supports that the Individuals receive. However, they do not develop Service Plans or complete the Individual Support Plans.

The primary role of the Support Home Monitor is to monitor support homes by completing regular home visits, monitoring for all health and safety requirements within the home and ensuring that Subcontractors uphold their contractual obligations such as training requirements, documentation and providing monthly summaries. The Support Home Monitor is also a resource person for the Subcontractors and is there to assist them with any questions or concerns they may have.

Community Resource Facilitator

This is a position that supports adults with developmental disabilities and other disabling barriers (addictions, mental health, and homelessness). The Individuals accessing services are supported with 3-5 hours a week. The Community Resource Facilitator provides community resourcing, emotional support, guidance, direction, and community inclusion. The CRF also handles the documentation related to individual service goals.

Community Access Staff

Community Access Staff work both part time and full time. They provide day to day support to adults with developmental disabilities, on a one to one basis. Activities are highly individualized to the person being supported. Generally, activities focus on the development of life skills, and community access. They might be supporting someone in a volunteer position, helping them to access recreational activities, or helping an individual to discover community resources that are relevant to their interests and personal goals. In this position, the worker has a high level of independence, as support occurs in the community and is not based in a facility where they would have more regular involvement with other staff members. Generally, they will work closely with the family or support home of the individual to ensure a strong team approach to support.
