Supported Independent Living
Through KenCrest’s Personal Support Network, we provide supported independent living services to individuals who live on their own in the community. We serve Pennsylvania residents in Bucks, Montgomery, Berks, Philadelphia, Delaware, and Chester Counties. Supported independent living provides flexible services and supports that allow individuals to live as independently as possible and fully participate in their community.
KenCrest’s home and community based support team, in conjunction with the individual, their family, and their service coordinator, utilizes a person-centered planning approach to create and deliver outcome-based supports outlined by the individual service plan (ISP). The person-centered approach takes into account the individual’s strengths, capabilities, preferences, lifestyle, cultural background, and goals to form a life-course trajectory and plan for the future.
All supports are designed to focus on each person’s growth, personal fulfillment, and individual choices and desires, encouraging an everyday life.
A Variety of Supports to Choose From
Once an individual is successfully living independently, KenCrest can provide an array of services designed to support each person to continue living independently and effectively. KenCrest can offer assistance with development and the support of:
- Daily living skills
- Managing personal finances (budgeting)
- Scheduling and support during medical appointments
- Menu planning and shopping
- Community participation and accessing the local community and services
- Advocacy and support
Ongoing and Specific
The supports KenCrest provides are based on individual, outcome-based goals outlined by each person’s ISP. Regular team meetings serve to discuss the progress made on each goal and adjust supports according to a person’s goals, outcomes, and interests.
The social activity club is an informal social program designed exclusively for individuals in the home and community based support program. The activity club participants engage in a host of community based activities such as bowling, trips, breakfasts, and many others.
