Homeshare

Enjoying special times together is one of the many perks of Homesharing.

What is Home Sharing?

Home Sharing is one of Inclusion Powell River’s Residential Options for individuals living with a developmental disability. This option explores a match between the individual seeking a secure and welcoming home situation with a family/community member seeking to share their home. Key to the success of this program is the groundwork laid to find the right match.

Our Home Share Manager works with both the individual and potential home share providers to support this process.

Home Share Placements Are Customized

Community members may choose to open their homes to individuals in a variety of ways. Individuals can live with them as members of their family or separately in their own suite with a range of supports depending on their needs. There can be additional staff supports for individuals with high needs. Community members that choose to have someone live with them will be paid a fee that matches the care needs of the individual. This care level will be determined by the Homesharing Manager through the use of an assessment tool.

If you are an individual interested in finding out more about this housing option for yourself or you are a community member interested in exploring the option of sharing your home, please contact us.
