A holistic approach is taken in supporting adults within a group home setting where supports and services are provided 24 hours a day. Using the ‘Community-First’ philosophy, people are empowered and encouraged to interact with their community. Support is given to assist each person to move through their daily lives in the areas of personal care, medication administration, grocery shopping, appointments, leisure activities, banking, travel and participation in social events.
CLPS ensures a team approach to case management. CLPS will assume the lead agency role when multiple agencies are involved. The Primary Community Inclusion and Support Facilitator (CISF) will provide Service Coordination – specifically, the role of the CISF is to:
a) Promote and facilitate an inclusion-based approach that links the person to community services and supports
b) Promote and facilitate opportunities that connect each person to the community effectively
c) Increase the person’s capacity and potential to advocate on their own behalf
Because vacancies in the Residential Services Program at CLPS are reported to the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, applications to receive support must go through Developmental Services Ontario. To apply for services, please visit: https://www.dsontario.ca/
