Services for Community Living Residential Program

Services for Community Living Residential Program provides for 11 adults with developmental disabilities and complex health care needs. This program offers person centered support and assistance with at-home and community based activities. Some of the individuals are seniors and many have been in this program for over a decade.

More than 35 employees are in place to provide residents with daily supports including assistance with meals, mobility, personal care, community outings, hobbies, transportation, medication administration and the coordination of health care needs. A client-centered approach supporting individuals to live full lives, as independently as possible, is balanced with the need to effectively support people as they age. We have many experienced long-term staff whose dedication and familiarity with the clients we support continues to be a tremendous asset.

The Program is operated out of one society-owned and two BC Housing-owned homes located in Nelson. We are very fortunate to offer stable, cost effective housing in a community where affordable housing can at times be a challenge.

Our Residential program continues to strive towards increased effectiveness and efficiency, with a focus on excellence in care. The program is licensed under the Adult Care Act Regulations and accredited by CARF (Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities).  We continue to meet our key service delivery targets.
