Supportive Housing in Manitoba

 
Overview of Supportive Housing

Supportive housing offers 24 hour on site assistance.Supportive Housing is a seniors' housing program with three main components: rent, services and a support component. The rent and services components are paid by the resident. The support component of this service is funded through the Regional Health Authorities of Manitoba.

Supportive Housing is the right choice for people who require access to 24 hour supervision and some assistance managing with physical limitations, or ongoing health conditions such as dementia. Residents receive support and cueing with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, and medication reminders.

Supportive Housing providers set high standards for comfort, independence, safety and peace of mind. Seniors and their families can count on Supportive Housing providers to meet their needs with integrity, understanding and respect.

Supportive housing provides freedom and the privacy of living in suites.Supportive Housing is a good choice for seniors who want the freedom and privacy of living in suites, combined with innovative support and care options. Resident companions, who know and support residents and their families, are on-site 24 hours a day, like neighbors you can count on.

Everyone's needs are different. Supportive Housing staff work with the senior and the family to ensure the service plan is "just right" for each individual.

To find out if you are eligible to reside in Supportive Housing, contact your regional health authority (RHA) or speak to your home care case coordinator.

Should a time come when you require more services than Supportive Housing can provide, the staff, in coordination with the RHA, will assist you to review options. If you require the services offered in a personal care home, you will benefit from the time you have lived in Supportive Housing.
