Text reads: Title: Advantages of a supported living arrangement.

Supported living arrangements, such as an adult foster or group home, provide support services in a living environment designed to maintain the ability to function independently. The goal of supported living is to assist with basic needs while encouraging independence, engagement, and activity. When evaluating a supported living arrangement, look closely at the cost, as most arrangements are privately operated and must be paid for out-of-pocket.
