Community Residential Supports

CHI offers residential services including support with medical appointments and health care issues, activities of daily living (ADLs), opportunities to try new things, meet new people and live a life with meaning and purpose.

Each person who is supported at CHI participates in crafting an Annual Individual Plan (IP) which outlines how supports and services will be delivered. Although the formal IP process happens annually, changes, modifications and adjustments can be made as each person reaches or exceeds his/her individually designed personal goals.  We know that people are dynamic, ever-changing and growing and we realize that our work is not done until you are satisfied.

Residential Supports include:

  • Accessible housing (with environmental modifications, as needed).

  • Transportation to and from self-selected community based activities, events and household errands. Accessing local public transportation and/or supporting the use of community transportation resources is emphasized.
