Supported Living: A Shared Vision
March 28, 2017 @ 8:00 am - March 29, 2017 @ 1:00 pm$25
The North Carolina Innovations Waiver makes true Supported Living an option for people with disabilities in our state. What will it mean for people who want to live lives of their own design and for their families? How will the transition to individualized supports impact North Carolina agencies and staff?
Industry leaders will discuss how using a flexible, individualized approach to services not only recognizes the right to self-determination, it offers better lives to people who have generally been in overly-structured and expensive services. Learn how to effectively engage and support staff, using technology to support people in their own homes and ways people with disabilities can access housing resources.
Daily brainstorming sessions and group discussions will assist in developing a common agenda for the statewide initiative. You will also learn about how you can help shape a statewide Community of Practice that will assure that we are all a part of making Supported Living an accessible and successful option.
