Home-sharing is a living situation in which an adult eligible for CLBC supports shares a home with a person contracted to provide support and assistance to them. Also known as family care, home living services, family-life homes, or host-family services.
Vital Society contracts with CLBC to provide home-sharing support. We have the responsibility to approve home-sharing providers. Vital Society only approves those with the skills, disposition, and physical accommodation to provide high-quality home-sharing support to individuals-served.
Coordinators complete a rigorous and comprehensive assessment prior to approving any home-sharing provider. Approval does not necessarily guarantee that a contract will be established with the potential provider. Contracts may be established when the individual-served, their family, or support network members decide whether or not a potential candidate meets the individual’s needs and preferences for support. Vital Society home-sharing providers may support only one individual at any given time. Exceptions may be considered if beneficial to the first individual in the home.
