What We Do
Individuals who receive Spectrum Supported Living Services are at the centre of planning the services and support they receive. While their family and friends participate in the planning process, the individual who receives Spectrum Supported Living Services has the loudest voice. When an individual is not able to communicate in typical ways, we learn about his or her needs and preferences by spending time with them observing their preferences and the things that work and don’t work for them. Spectrum Support Living Services also listen to people who know and care about the individual to find out how to effectively support him or her.
Firstly Spectrum Supported Living Services develop an individualised support plan with the individual that reflects the services he or she wants and needs. The support plan describes what services (e.g. cooking, budgeting) will be provided, when services will be provided (e.g. time of day, frequency) and how (e.g. instruction, facilitation, supervision) services will be provided. Just as the individuals needs will be constantly changing, the service plan will be continuously changing to reflect their current needs and goals.
