THE SUPERVISED APARTMENT PROGRAM
An Independent Living Program

The Supervised Apartment Program can be a transitional living step or permanent housing for graduates of the Residential Living Center. Residents of this program have increased knowledge in managing their illness and have improved psychiatric stability. This program offers residents more spacious accommodations, and the opportunity and responsibility of greater independence.

Staff supports, are more limited than in the Residential Living Center (group home), and are focused on residents’ practicing independent living skills, including: self-care, cooking, cleaning, money management, leisure time planning etc. Residents may also work on accepting greater responsibility for self-medication.

Supervised Apartment residents generally have a commitment of work, school or volunteerism outside of the program.

SUPERVISED APARTMENT PROGRAM SERVICES
The goal of service provision in the apartment program is resident empowerment and skill building in an independent living environment. Whenever possible, the staff will prompt the resident in skill development or advocating on their own behalf.

  • Residential Staff availability evenings and overnight

  • Periodic coordination with treatment providers

  • Medication monitoring and support of resident self-medication
