Individual Supportive Living (ISL) refers to living arrangements for persons who require support due to a disability. ISL goes beyond accommodation to the creation of homes that are based on universally valued principles of what makes a home for each person.
Homes are where we live, develop, pursue our interests and foster relationships. A person’s home is the foundation for
ISL. As a comprehensive framework, ISL is particularly relevant for persons with significant daily living limitations or who may require substantial support in daily life.
We create custom-tailored supportive living programs based on each individual client’s capabilities and goals. This both enhances our clients’ quality of life, and provides support for the families who care for them.
GMA’s philosophy is that people with developmental disabilities deserve to live, work and play in the least restrictive environment possible, with the support systems they require to be safe and successful.
We encourage our clients to pursue individual interests and become involved in a variety of social and recreational opportunities in order to promote fellowship, friendship and connection. We offer training in skills for independent living, such as:
Accessing Community Activities
Traveling Within One’s Community
