Victoria Community Living Program

Our Community Living Program teaches skills and encourages residents to make choices about their living accommodations, school locations and work/leisure activities. Designed around person-centered planning, a process that identifies existing and natural supports, the program incorporates individual preferences and strengths, and provides strategies and resources for achieving effective outcomes.

Assessment and Support Planning

Embracing an interdisciplinary team approach, our Community Living Program emphasizes the improvement of independent functioning and access to community resources. The program staff, comprised of psychiatrists, physicians, nurses and vocational professionals, utilizes carefully designed comprehensive evaluations and initial assessments. These assessments evaluate psychiatric, physical, vocational, social and developmental, living skills, recreation, strengths and personal goals. Individual care plans are then developed to address each resident’s needs, and they are continuously monitored for progress and modifications.
