WDDS enables people to be as independent as possible and to live and participate, to their fullest extent, in the life of their community. There are variable levels of supports provided in different environments, dependent on individual needs and abilities. Learning opportunities include areas such as self-care, household management, social skills and community awareness.
Group Living Support is provided to two or more people living together, requiring up to twenty-four-hour staff support. A model of person-centered planning is utilized to ensure that the person’s expressed desires are listened to and that the supports are provided to ensure that they are realized. The key focus is to support people to live as independently as possible. Group Living may be a first step into transitioning into a more independent model of support.
WDDS currently supports people in 19 homes located throughout the community of Woodstock. Many of these homes are barrier-free, providing accessible housing for a variety of physical needs.
