Lodge Supportive Living Program
Supportive living is both a philosophy and an approach for providing services within a housing environment. It provides a residential setting where people can maintain control over their lives while also receiving the support they need. Buildings and common areas are specifically designed to meet residents’ needs and to support their safety and security. To learn more about Supportive Living as a philosophy please read the Province of Alberta's Supportive Living Framework document.
Supportive Living facilities meet the needs of a wide range of people, but not those who have highly complex and serious health care needs. Supportive living facilities are also typically unable to serve individuals who exhibit unpredictable behaviours that put themselves and/or others at risk.
