What are Supported Living Services?

AbleLight’s Supported Living Services (SLS), sometimes called Independent Living Services, offer customized support for individuals with developmental disabilities where they need it most – at home and in their local communities. Our goal is to foster an environment where the individuals we support can flourish, grow their skills, and gain independence.

With SLS, an individual lives in their own home or apartment and an AbleLight caregiver provides the customized support they need to achieve their goals. We understand that every person is unique, with different aspirations and dreams. Our care team works closely with the people we support to understand their specific needs and preferences and create a customized care plan.
