State Supported Living Services (SLS) provide a variety of services, such as personal care (like eating, bathing and dressing) or homemaking needs, employment or other day type services, accessing his or her community, help with decision-making, assistive technology, home modification, professional therapies, transportation, and twenty-four emergency assistance.  Supported Living Services are not intended to meet all needs.  Service needs and the level of support are prioritized within the overall Individualized Plan (IP).

The person receiving services is responsible for his or her living arrangements which can include living with family or in their own place.  Up to three persons receiving services can live together.  The person receiving services cannot require 24-hour supervision paid for only by SLS.
