Home is much more than "where we live". Home is a place where we like to be, a place where we feel comfortable, safe and in control. It is a place where we can create our own personal environment and enjoy family and friends.
Community Living Oakville is committed to encouraging lifestyles for people that promote their independence, participation, inclusion, friendships and citizenship in the community. We believe in being respectful of the uniqueness, dignity, well-being and privacy for each person receiving support.
Community Living Oakville provides a variety of residential supports for people based on their individual needs.
24 Hour Support
Each home provides support for up to 5 people residing in a group living setting. The support provided is person-directed and designed to meet each person’ goals, wishes, needs and dreams.
The focus of the support Community Living Oakville provides extends far beyond ensuring that a person’s basic needs are met. We promote personal decision making, meaningful community involvement and assist people to develop and maintain independence in their everyday lives.
Supported Independent Living and Enhanced Supported Independent Living
Supported Independent Living and Enhanced Supported Independent Living are designed to offer varying amounts of support to people where they live. Support is also offered while they are in their family home and in the process of moving to their own home.
The frequency and type of support varies with each person and is based on the expressed needs of that person. Support could include money handling and budgeting, menu planning and assistance with preparation of meals, shopping, landlord and tenant negotiations, home maintenance, assistance with appointments and accessing other community resources to enhance their quality of life.
