Supportive Housing provides flexible supportive services to residents who reside in housing complexes for elders and persons with disabilities. LifePath works in collaboration with local housing authorities to assist and ensure residents can live safely and independently in their apartments.
A full-time staff person is on site to work with residents. The Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs and the Department of Housing and Community Development have approved almost 30 supportive housing sites throughout the Commonwealth.
The goal of supportive housing is to allow those who already live in elder housing to stay there and get support when and how it is needed. For example, if a person has a hospital stay, when they return home, they will have a check-in visit, and if some services or extra help are necessary to assist them while they fully recuperate, those supports can be put in place. If support is needed long-term, that can be arranged as well.
